Farmers Market

We are launching a new venture for Leiston and the Long Shop Museum with the introduction of a Farmers market. This free event starts on the 18th of May and it occurs every third Saturday of the month from 9am-1pm. Our June market will be on the 15th June.

We would like to encourage local makers and food suppliers to get involved to provide Leiston and the surrounding areas with good food and great produce.

If any local traders would like to be a part of this popular event please contact the museum
