Jersey producers show their wares


Jersey’s open-air markets start again this weekend in St Aubin when local producers will be showcasing what they’ve grown, caught and made.

Local produce and wares including fresh seasonal vegetables, meat products, seafood, cider and crafts will all be on offer.

The Farm and Craft Market opens up at 9am on Saturday in St Aubin and will be held on the second and fourth Saturday of the month, alternating with Jersey’s traditional market place - the Place du Marché, – or as we know it today – the Royal Square, until the Autumn.

Chief Executive of Genuine Jersey John Garton said the markets are a chance for Islanders and visitors to connect with Jersey’s rural economy and to buy the best the Island has to offer.

He said: “Markets have been a tradition of local economic life since the first “lé vièr marchi”  were established in the late 16th century. Jersey is fortunate to have vibrant covered markets in the town which are complemented by the farm and craft markets, fairs and events held throughout the year. We have fabulous fresh produce on our doorstep and skilled producers to be proud of and what better ways to showcase it, in historic and picturesque locations.”
