About LRA
LRA Farmers Market

LRA Farmers MarketLRA started Sunday Farmers Markets in July 2002, which were organised for many years by Hughmark, then latterly by Essex Farmers Market. On the second Sunday of every month, residents found a wide range of stalls in Loughton High Road opposite The Last Post selling a range of foods direct from the producers. Those who came along were delighted that this regular space gave them the opportunity to meet each other.

Just before the Covid pandemic the organiser closed down because of illness. Then with associated pandemic lockdowns from 2020, the market was unable to be restarted.

Eventually, the District Council formed a new markets policy and licensing procedure which took effect from October 2022. The LRA-led Town Council then decided to step in, and it has now become the relevant authority for markets in Loughton.

The Town Council have now decided to grant a licence to Hughmark to run the market, which is expected to be weekly on the High Road.
