Queen of the Suburbs and fictional home of 1970s sitcom The Good Life, Surbiton is often a byword for suburban living. But this unique community initiative has brought the countryside into the town.
Since it began in October 2009, Maple Road Surbiton Farmers’ Market has become an essential meeting point for the community as well as a great place to shop, while helping to raise more than £50,000 for local charities and good causes.
Who we are
On the third Saturday of each month, Maple Road welcomes 26 farmers and producers selling wonderful fresh produce and speciality foods. From locally grown fruit and vegetable varieties rarely seen on the high street to artisan bakery products made just down the road, our aim is to provide consistently high quality and good value.
We also run a programme of special events to attract and inform visitors, and support stallholders and local businesses. And we’ve introduced a programme of summer music to make the market atmosphere even more enjoyable for shoppers, while providing aspiring local musicians with exposure and experience.
