The Market is situated on the Village Green or under the Coop shed roof if weather is bad. Whilst at the market, please respect Social Distancing rules & remain 1.5m apart from others, do not use the market as a social gathering & please sanitise hands on arrival.
This market is designed to support local producers, and local people in accessing delicious, healthy food – outside of a supermarket environment.
Due to the popularity of the market, we request that you do your shopping and leave straight away to enable management of our small carpark, and reduce the numbers of people on site at a time.
On Saturday mornings at ECOSS – Melganics will be selling excess produce on site at ECOSS.
You can pre-purchase bulk cleaning and household products via Have Your FIll- see FB. For pick up at the market.
