• Chichester - General Market Wednesday & Saturday, Farmer’s Market 1st & 3rd Friday each month
• Eastbourne - Tuesday, Thursday
• Horsham - Saturday
• Lewes - 1st Saturday each month
• Worthing – Wednesday
Larger towns often have a permanent market such as Brighton’s Flea Market in Kemp Town or the Greenwich Village Market in North Laine.
The Farmers Market, which is staffed by volunteers, has been running for 8 years and operates every Friday morning throughout the year (apart from the Friday between Christmas and New Year). They have between 14 and 18 stalls supplying the basics such as meat, game, fish, bread, dairy products, preserves, fruit juice and vegetables as well as luxury items such as hand made chocolates, fudge, jewellery, cards and sometimes wine. The idea is that seasonal local food products should be available at sensible prices and in small enough quantities to meet the needs of the customers. This way, they can support local farmers, cut down on food miles and provide good fresh produce.
Unusual and quirky gift shops supplying products such as notebooks, calenders, photo albums, jewellery and jewellery boxes, as well as dolls houses and furniture
