Merchants of Hoghton Farmers Market 18 Sept 2011

What better way to spend a beautiful Sunday morning than at Hoghton Tower shopping at the Merchants of Hoghton Farmers Market.

Hoghton Tower has been the home of the de Hoghton family since the Norman Conquest re knowned for its connections with William Shakespeare, Charles Dickens and King James I who, at a banquet held in his honour, famously knighted a loin of beef ‘Sir Loin’. (taken from the Hoghton Tower website)

Wonderful county wide food producers with fresh goods and home made foodstuffs on sale from all over Lancashire and bordering counties. Quality but competitively priced too.

The market is held once a month on Sundays details on the  Hoghton Tower site. Parking costs £1.

Some of my market haul...


  1. A fabulous post for the start of British Food Fortnight and wonderful photos too!

  2. PS: I have just spied my kind of stall ~ a cake stand stall! :-)

  3. Thank you Karen, those plate stands were made by one of the 2 sisters on that stall, they sold lovely wraps as well.

  4. Only some of your haul ? ;-) Quite envious of such a lovely market. Our farmer's market started quite well a few years ago, but died a few years ago too.


Please leave a comment...if you have tried one of my recipes I'd love feedback, and thank you for taking time to pop by to read my blog.
