Ledbury’s new Evening Farmer’s Market ends 2019 with a special Christmas market on Thursday 5th December from 6 to 8pm at the Barn, St Katherine’s, on same night as Ledbury’s Shops Late Night Opening.
As well as the regular stalls, special treats on sale will include chocolates, marshmallows, empanadas, Juneberry Liqueur and a “community” stall with “Big Apple Cider Vinegar” and “Ledbury Heritage Centre” Quince and Medlar Jelly, plus mulled wine and cider too! We will be singing carols at 6.30 and 7pm.
Organiser Fran Robinson said, “Ledbury Food Group has managed the market as a six month project to establish the appetite for a monthly local evening food market. With 150 to 250 customers each time, I think we can say it is a success. Local stands for quality and freshness and reduces food miles and packaging. Small-scale producers are more aware of sustainable practice and encourage biodiversity. By buying local produce we all support the local economy, our towns and villages.
We are now passing organisation of future markets to The Barn and the stallholders. They plan to spring into life again with the first market of 2020 on Thursday 2nd April.”
