Farmers’ market will continue

The Board is in talks with a number of new market operators following last Sunday’s decision by the former operator to terminate its contract.

With up to 160 stalls and 5,000 regular customers, the Humber Bridge team is keen to ensure that normal service continues and will make an announcement next week about a new provider.

Chief Executive Dr Kevin Moore says: “We want to be clear to traders and shoppers that the farmers’ market is very important to us and we have been moving quickly to appoint a new operator but we will go ahead with the March event. I’d like to pay tribute to the stallholders who have been in touch and have pledged their support for our event. I look forward to seeing them back with us again.”

The next Farmers’ Market is scheduled for Sunday 4th March, 9-1, in the car park near the Tourist Information Centre. Free parking is available. Further information is available from or call 01482 647161.
