This Valentine’s Day, our traders are here to help you spread a little love.
Ely is well known for its busy markets packed full of craft, vintage, food and gift stalls. This year, due to lockdown, our markets look a little different. Luckily, our resourceful traders are here to help you find beautiful and unusual gifts for your loved ones this Valentine’s Day.
It’s our Farmers’ Market on 13 February. Here you’ll find all the ingredients you need for a gorgeous meal at home – from steak and venison, to artisan cheese and delicious cakes. You’ll also find artisan cyder from Brooks and Conquest, artisan beer from Starwing Brewery or some Ely Gin – all of which are also available online. Our garden traders will also have plenty of shrubs, bedding plants and flowers. For everything else, you can shop online via our Trader Directory.
