June Farmers Market

The June Farmers Market will take place on the Playing Close on Saturday 13th June. (See the Events Section for more information).

Thames  Valley Farmers Market (TVFM) Co-operative has worked hard throughout the Covid-19 pandemic to support its members, many of whom rely on the markets for their income, and to provide customers with a source of food and drink. TVFM is one of the very few market operators that has been able to continue operating through the lockdown. The continued operation has been, and continues to be,  subject to adherence to a strict Safe and Social Distancing Protocol. This protocol was agreed with Trading Standards, and the landlords of various market sites were also consulted.  Agreeing the protocol and then implementing it "on the day" in markets  has involved an immense amount of work behind the scenes for the Committee and other volunteer members. But this work has allowed the markets to continue as scheduled.  Initially, member attendance at the markets was limited to members selling food and drink, but the recent relaxation of the rules in relation to open air markets has allowed other members to start attending again.   

So Charlbury Farmers Market, an event supported and enjoyed by many, will take place on Saturday 13th June as planned. Members trading will be adhering to the protocol and taking necessary precautions and customers are requested to play their part by observing social distancing, only touching what they are buying and using contactless payment where possible.
