Duck Pond Market – Ruislip

Duck Pond Market’s Monthly Craft and Food Event is coming up on Sunday May 15th, between 10.00am and 3.00pm at The Great Barn, Manor Farm Site, Ruislip, HA4 7QL.

Duck Pond Market launched in Ruislip in December 2008, inside the recently refurbished Great Barn, and has since grown to over 100 stalls! The market was launched to provide a forum for local independent crafters, food producers and small local businesses to present their wares to their community, in an exciting and vibrant market. We try to bring the excitement and magic of a festival to the barn each month by bringing interesting, local and ethical food, crafts, music and arts together, always in an amazing setting.

The market is lively, eclectic, unique and combines farmers market stalls with a selection of local artists and crafters, live local musicians and other interesting stalls and is evolving each month. There’s plenty of children’s entertainment, usually including face painting, make & takes, vintage swingboats, and a petting zoo all in the beautiful setting of the Great Barn, a magical 13th century barn and its surrounding land. The friendly atmosphere, the tantalising smells of barbecue cooking, the aroma of fresh bread and home-baking, the tasty samples, and the bustling busy-ness of it, all add to the success of Ruislip’s Duck Pond Market!

Duck Pond Market is situated in the Great Barn at the end of Ruislip High Street, and easy to get to via the Metropolitan Line Ruislip tube station, and served by bus numbers H13, 331 and the U10. There is a car park situated directly next to the market, accessed from St Martin’s Approach and is really reasonable. On Sundays parking is free.
