Peter Marshall, co-founder of Country Market, cut the ribbon at the Vear-constructed building.

The centre includes a farm shop and garden centre, food retailers, including specialist wines and local beers and ciders, a butchers and delicatessen, cheese counter, bakers and home grow fruit and vegetables from the farm, as well as home grown plants in the nursery. 

Country Market also now offers fashion and country clothing, footwear, an aquatics and fishkeeping centre, a specialist pet shop, crafting materials, gifts, toys and books as well as a café and soon-to-be opened carvery style family restaurant. 

The Farnham Hub, a business networking organisation focused on nurturing and developing small to medium sized enterprises within the local community which won Country Market’s 'X-citing Business' competition, will also operate from the new building.

The business began in 1965 but its main retail building burnt down in 2010, before Vear rebuilt it this year.
