Info about us

Isle of Farmers' Markets is an affliation of people who wish to promote the growing, making and selling of Manx food and products. It's committee is elected from Accredited stallholders.

The Island has a rich history of markets through which Farmers and producers have traditionally sold their own produce. These markets were not only an essential source of food for the local community, they were also a vital focal point for meeting and socialising.

Isle of Man Farmers' Markets is working to revive this tradition, both by promoting existing markets on the island and by assisting in the creation of further markets.

Buying locally helps to sustain the Manx community and ecconomy and encourage diversification, and also helps in reducing 'food miles' which are having an increasingly detrimental effect on our environment.

Equally important, these markets allow access to the freshest products, with exceptional levels of traceability and also provides the opportunity to meet the people who produce them.
