Fresh-n-local Corona virus update 25th March 2020

It is with a heavy heart that we are announcing the temporary closure of all our markets. This is likely to continue throughout April. The Government will review the current lockdown advice in 3 weeks’ time but in all likelihood, we won’t be back before May. We are extremely sorry, but the enforcement of social distancing has proved impossible.

Stroud farmers market food hub

To mitigate the impact of this on as many of our customers and producers as possible we are opening a food hub in the Cornhill Square part of the market. The gates will be closed, and we will be offering a combination of pre order collection and delivery. We will do this in a non online way at first with orders to be emailed and phoned in. To make this viable we will invite every stallholder who would normally sell at the market on Saturdays to drive to Stroud and drop off their produce to the square early on Saturday morning, ready for packing and distribution. We will then organise the produce and a team of us will work to pack for pick up from the market square or delivery during the morning.

We aim to continue the hub throughout the period the market is closed

Customers may wish to contact stallholders direct too, with many of them offering their own home delivery service.

How to use the Saturday Farmers’ market food Hub 4th April 2020

The farmers’ market food hub has been set up so our customers are still able to access the foods they are used to getting on a Saturday.

The food hub will work through direct communication between the person ordering and the Saturday team. We will give you a time slot for collection. Please queue with consideration of social distancing in mind. For deliveries please consider asking a friend or neighbour to collect your shopping for you. If this is not possible, we will put you down for delivery. We will not be doing long range deliveries.

  1. A) Please order what you would like from each stallholder. Please order by email; markets@fresh-n-local.co.uk.
  2. Please let us know roughly what time you would like to collect on your order email. (please also see if one person can collect for several at once etc)
  3. We will have your order and bill ready for you on Saturday.
  4. We will give you a time slot for collection
  5. Please have cash ready in an envelope to pay for your order or you may use our card reader machine.
  6. Please don’t bulk buy. We will be doing this every week until the market re opens.
  7. Please have your order with us by 8am Thursday morning. Orders received after the cut off may be unsuccessful.

Please note some producers have decided to mothball production until markets re start; Pippin Doughnuts, the Olive Stall, Baked By Beth, Katie Crunch and Salt Bakehouse. Some producers are not ready to join the scheme but may join occasionally or over the next few weeks.
