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 Lewes Community Allotment, Ringmer Community Orchard and Seedy Saturday Lewes. We believe in a Sustainable Sussex, primarily through supporting the local food economy.

In October 2019, we launched a new project in partnership with Lewes GP surgeries, Lewes District Council and with funding from the National Lottery. If you think you or someone you know could benefit from supported gardening sessions in the beautiful Lewes House Garden in the centre of town please speak to your surgery or call 07902924998. For more information click here We would like to thank Goldcliff Garden Centre near Lewes for their generous support

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

The next Farmers Markets are on:

5th & 19th of October
