March Farmers’ Market Falls Victim to Weather

The Humber Bridge Farmers’ Market, which was due to take place this Sunday 4th March, has been postponed because of the ground conditions caused by the current extreme weather.

The Humber Bridge Board and the new operators, The Market Managers, made the decision to postpone following an inspection of the car park.

Co-director Andrew Riley says: “It’s unfortunate to have to move our first market as operators, but health and safety come first with such a popular event and traders were starting to ask us about this particular date, given the conditions. We wanted to be fair to everyone.”

The market, which offers up to 160 stalls and attracts thousands of people, takes place in the Humber Bridge car park outside the tourist information centre once a month and has been a fixture on the events calendar for the last decade.

The next date will be Easter Sunday, 1st April, from 9-1.30.

Humber Bridge Chief Executive Kevin Moore says: “It’s the right decision, given the icy conditions in the car park and the continued big freeze. We look forward to welcoming everyone on Easter Sunday.”
