10 years for farmers’ market
STALLHOLDERS and producers at Clevedon’s monthly farmers’ market will celebrate its 10th anniversary this weekend.
On Saturday, the market will be held in Queens Square from 9am-12.30pm when two cakes will be cut to mark the anniversary and members of Clevedon Lions club will hold a celebratory raffle.
The certified market was first held in May, 2002, and has been held every month since.
It was set up to reinvigorate business for farmers and producers following the foot and mouth outbreak in 2001 and is run as a social enterprise by a cooperative, of which all stallholders must be a member.
It now regularly features 17 stalls selling goods which are all locally-produced or include local ingredients.
