Shop for seasonal gifts at Ryde's bustling farmers' markets

Whether you're looking for that perfect Christmas gift, keen to take a taste of the Isle of Wight home with you or simply after a delicious snack, why not pay a visit to the Farmers' Market in Ryde?
 
Each Saturday between now and Christmas, the town will welcome a host of local producers, with stalls being set up in the main square on Anglesea Street.
 
Here, locals and visitors to the island can purchase high-quality, traditional delicacies, including freshly-caught fish, as well as sweets, cakes and handicrafts.
 
However, the market is about so much more than just shopping, serving as a focal point for community life and giving tourists the chance to see one of the island's most-vibrant towns at its best.
 
Moreover, farmers' markets such as these have been credited with helping rejuvenate the Isle of Wight's town centres, meaning simply by visiting, guests are giving something back to the local community.
 
Alongside the busy market, Ryde also comes alive at weekends as holidaymakers head to the oldest pier in the whole of the UK.
