Lewes Food Market
BUY LOCAL : EAT SEASONAL : FEEL GOOD
Lewes Food Market – EVERY FRIDAY 9.00-1.30 MARKET STREET, LEWES
This is a small but perfectly formed food market selling fresh, local produce, takeaway nibbles and light meals suitable for a picnic. From smoked fish to homemade bread, from local cheese to oriental dim sum, this is a foodie’s delight.
Lewes Local Community Interest Company (CIC) is a not-for-profit company with the broad aims of developing sustainable local food systems and making it easier for more people to buy good, healthy, seasonal food. Lewes Local CIC was established in June 2010, and the Lewes Food Market is its first project.
The Market grew from an idea initially developed by members of the Transition Town Lewes Food Group. The Food Group aimed to work towards sustainable food production, supply and access in Lewes District. A market seemed a good way to further these aims, so Food Group members recruited more people to establish the Market Group, which worked with the support of others such as the Lewes Town Partnership and Lewes District Council to get a market up and running.
As a Community Interest Company, we run the Market as a business, employing a Market Manager, but use any profits to support food-related community initiatives.
The main aims of the Market are:
To increase access to healthy seasonal food for all.
To provide an outlet for professional producers and very small amateur sellers, new producers and surpluses from allotments.
To support distribution methods which reduce carbon emissions.
To reclaim and develop a sustainable, local food culture.
To do this, we have set criteria for stalls at the market, which we hope reflect our core principles.
