Guest producers - Producers type

Our producers all come from within a 50 mile radius of Hexham which means that we get stallholders from Northumberland, County Durham, Cumbria, Newcastle and Gateshead and even from North Yorkshire. All our producers sign up to our rules which are periodically reviewed and updated.

Our producers are passionate about what they do. They all know their products and would be very happy to talk to you about them.  Our farmers can tell you about their farms and their stock and on occasion some might not be able to come to the market, or arrive a bit late, because they are lambing or calving.  Because we are a producer market, you can be sure that the products you buy will be fresh and from a source you can trust.

We allow new producers to try the market as a guest for a number of markets. If they decide that they’d like to come on a regular basis, they make a formal application.  Hexham Markets Market Ltd. then organises an inspection visit to their premises so that we have an understanding of where and how they work. It also gives us an opportunity to look at their records and see the production processes (where possible).
