Welcome to Common Cause, a social enterprise and not-for-profit company based in Lewes, East Sussex. 

We run the popular Lewes Farmers Market, as well as growing and well-being projects in and around Lewes, such as Flourish, Lewes Community Allotment, Ringmer Community Orchard and Seedy Saturday Lewes. We believe in a Sustainable Sussex, primarily through supporting the local food economy.

We filmed our recent Flourish ‘Fire and Feast’ event, to give a flavour of what we do!
