A farmers Market has been a feature of this Show for the last few years and Farmers' Markets in Wales has been invited, by the Society, to see whether it may be feasible to organise one for this year. It is difficult to provide many details at this stage but it is assumed the costs will be similar to previous years (about £180 for 3mts square) although this will depend on the final number of stalls. Submitting the form on this page will not commit you to attend but is merely designed to gauge interest. Gazebos will need to hired so if you have your own then significant savings can be made.
It should be noted that hot food to serve for consumption is not permitted although I understand mulled drinks have been traditionally served.
Farmers' Markets in Wales has been responsible for a Farmers' Market presence at the Spring Festival and Royal Show for many years but has not been previously involved with this event and knows little about it. FMIW is committed to assist in establishing markets for small scale producers, to minimize costs and maintain a presence on the Royal Welsh Showground.

Farmers' Market Picnic Site Refreshment Concession.
Now in its ninth year, the Farmers' Markets in Wales catering concession has become a well-established and attractive feature of The Royal Welsh Agricultural Show.
The object is to offer high quality food and drink of truly Welsh origin giving visitors a genuine and unique true taste of Wales experience. As a Farmers' Market collective the focus is on small artisan Welsh food and drink producers who source their ingredients, either from their own farms or known local suppliers.
The concession consists of an 18 m² grassed area surrounded on three sides by tarmac walk ways. The site is situated in an attractive part of the show ground with the adjacent Floral Hall, and extra, tree sheltered picnic benches supplied by the Society.

A 6 m X 18m marquee is set down the centre of the site with 3 m² catering areas serving from each side of the marquee to the grassed area set out with picnic benches.
There are central cold storage facilities as well as a utensil washing area supplied with sink and hot water.
