Lancaster’s Seasonal Markets happen in Lancaster market square every three months, always on a Friday around the equinoxes and solstices.
Celebrate the seasons with local produce, street food, music, arts and crafts, community stalls and fun activities for all the family.
The seasonal markets were launched in 2016 with the aim of celebrating the seasons and variety of local produce and products. The markets create a unique space for local producers, craftspeople and community groups to connect with local people and with other stallholders.
The market square comes alive as a place to meet up with friends, buy local produce and pick up some lunch. As well as a range of local food and craft stalls you’ll find live music throughout the day, cooking demos using seasonal produce and somewhere to sit and enjoy a spot of lunch. The markets offer a mix of stalls including hot food, craft and local produce including veg, honey and vinegars. It’s also a chance to chat to community organisations such as Claver Hill, FoodFutures, Eggcup, and Lancaster and Morecambe Makerspace. Finally, each issue of THRIVE (North Lancashire’s community food magazine) is launched at the seasonal market. Come down, pick up a copy, buy some fresh local produce and support our local food economy.
