Harleston Country Market

Wednesday 14th April 2021


You can shop locally for fruit and vegetables, plants and bulbs, sweet and savoury bakery and vegetarian specialities.  You can order any of the home baking products at the Market for collection the following Wednesday.  And if you're looking for a special present, our members who craft and sew have all been busy during lockdown so we'll have a really good selection every week.


For safety we operate a one-way system, have hand sanitiser available, all wear masks and keep both doors open to aid ventilation.  We will also have tables outside weather permitting.  


Come and see what we sell - you may be surprised


The Making of America's Foundation Myth

The Making of America's Foundation Myth

Thursday 15th April 2021

Harleston's Future Mayflower 400 in Harleston


7pm - FREE Mayflower online lecture 

We will continue our Mayflower Lectures with 'the Making of America's Foundation Myth'.  The Mayflower story is one of a national foundation, but what is true and what is myth?



The Mayflower and the Pilgrim Fathers began to be held in reverence in America by the time of the 200th anniversary in 1820.  The troubled beginnings of the pilgrim settlement were reinvented by policitians, poets, pastors and artists.  Plymouth Rock was turned into a national shrine and the Mayflower Compact became the foundation stone of American democracy.  But how much of the story is true?


The lecture will be presented by Rita Cruise O'Brien, author of The Mayflower: Myths, Truths and Legacies.  

This is a FREE event but you must register:

July 2021

Harleston Open Gardens

Harleston Open Gardens

Saturday 31st July 2021

If it is safe and comfortable to do so, depending on what is happening with Covid-19, Harlestons Future is aiming to hold a Harleston Open Gardens event over the weekend 31 Jul - 1 Aug.   This year we have something different.  A most decorated garden pot - this can stand outside the front of the property and there will be a prize.  This can actually still happen even if we cannot open the gardens, but we are hoping to do both.


If there are people in Harleston willing and happy to open their gardens please phone Carol Wiles on 01379 853132 or Lesley Rock on 01379 852624.
