Belper Market Place is located at the very top of King Street where it meets the A609. As you can see in

my photograph of the Farmers Market, the market stalls occupy the top corner area of the Market Place.
Heage Windmill always have a stall here, selling freshly ground flour from the windmill. Some other stalls that
are often here are ones selling local cheeses, meats, locally brewed speciality beers etc.
If you are arriving in Belper by car then there are several car parks you can use for the Farmers Market, The Town is not very big so its not far to walk to most places. There is a car park next to the Co-Op off Strutt Street which is £2 for 2 hours. There are public toilets just around the corner from this car park.

If you don't want to walk up the steep incline of King Street then you could park in the car park off Green Lane. (see my map).
At the top corner of the Farmers Market is a church hall with crafts on show, Here you can also get a free cup of Tea and a biscuit on the Market days.
If you want a cheap but very tasty meal then I can recommend Poppy's Cafe on Chapel Street next to the bus station.

At the last Farmers Market I bought an amzing Rhubarb Pie that was the best Rhubarb pie I had ever tasted.
It was on a stall by Lime Tree Pantry. Looks like you can buy their pies on-line
