Unfortunately due to the reduced number of stalls and people attending the market over recent months the June market (17th June) will be the last one for the next few months. A discussion group is being formed by representatives from the Council as well as current regular stallholders to discuss the best way forward. We are very much hoping to relaunch the market in the Autumn.
The stallholders would like to thank all of their loyal customers for supporting the market and assure you of our intention to continue to supply our customers in the interim period and moving forward. The contact details for regular stall holders can be found below.
We feel passionately that this market has an important role to play in the local community especially in the current global climate where some food shortages are a certainty and where buying local can have such a positive impact on the environment. The market has historically proven itself to be a fantastic help for small local food suppliers who can discuss their product (and their passion) with the community, and get important feedback as their business develops.
Obviously, we would love to hear from potential new food stallholders. Our plan will be to offer as wide a range of diverse foods as possible for the local community, whilst not doubling up on products to ensure stallholders are not competing against other stalls in attendance.
Please come back to see us when we reopen and spread the word to your friends and neighbours.
