Farmers Markets

There are a number of farmers markets taking place throughout July, many just a short drive from The Peacock hotel. On the 4th, the picturesque village of Wirksworth hosts a market selling local, organic and free range produce with free music and entertainment! Further afield, on the opposite side of the peak district in Leek, The Fine Food Market brings together local and regional specialist food producers on the 18th July. Well worth the drive!

For crafts and all things vintage, drop by Baslow Village Hall between the 4th and 5th for a fantastic craft fair, with free admission.
