Welcome To Ongar Town Forum


Ongar Town Forum is formed of a group of local people , who are volunteers , to try to improve the town for the benefit of local businesses.
We are one of a number of other town partnerships in Epping Forest DC who try to improve their towns in the district.
We are supported by Epping Forest DC with our work and with some finances.
In the past we have run a local town Wednesday market , put on a Christmas light switch on entertainment evening , provided display boards for visitors to see what businesses operate in Ongar , information guides at tourist information sites as well as being involved in many other initiatives .
All local individuals and business owners are welcome to be involved with our work and attend our meetings .

Ongar Farmers and Craft Market runs on the first Sunday of every month in The Pleasance Car Park.

With up to 30 stalls selling a wide variety of food, drink and crafts. From meats reared at local farms, home made cakes and bakes created by an Ongar resident to personalised gifts for all occasions, homemade scented candles and woodworking by a young apprentice who lives in Fyfield.

After browsing the market why not take a stroll down our wonderful high street, with some shops opening specifically for market day and a number of eateries offering a Sunday lunch.
