Rye Farmers Market has been running in this picturesque fishing village for over ten years now. With a variety of fresh fish, game, meat, eggs, vegetables, cheese, ready meals, but also plants and jewellery.
Some of our traders have been attending the market since the very beginning.
We welcome new traders, with a special rate for January and February.
The town of Rye is two miles from the sea and in its past was involved with smuggling, was a shipyard and dockyard and was once an island! The Mermaid Inn was built in 1156 and is thought that it is connected by a secret passageway to the Olde Bell Inn.
Mermaid Street, a beautiful cobbled street, is one of Rye’s most photographed streets and is definitely worth the visit. There are many other winding paths and streets as well as historic buildings, which make it seem like the town has stopped in time in its medieval past. Places to visit include:- - Camber Castle - an old castle built by Henry VIII - Rye Harbour - used for small scale imports - Rye Heritage Centre - gives information on the town and of things to do as well as housing the Rye Town Model - sound and light show. - Rye Museum - including the Ypres Tower - Royal Military Canal
