Success of re-launched Market

AFTER a successful July event, which was the busiest in its three-year history, the Humber Bridge Farmers’ Market is set to return on Sunday August 7, at the Bridge viewing area in Hessle, from 9am to 1pm.

With attendances up, and the market space now completely filled with a huge range of stalls selling regional food and crafts, market managers are considering expanding the event into an additional car park to make space for more stalls.

Market manager Neil Marshall said: “Shoppers have really got behind the market since our re-launch in April, and visitors are really passionate about supporting the quality local businesses that attend.

“Visitor numbers have been growing all summer and to meet rising demand, we have now expanded to the point where we can’t fit any more traders on-site without opening up an additional car park.

“The market is now the largest of its type in the region, and there is no better place to get hold of a huge range of the freshest local ingredients, direct from the producers and all at their seasonal best.

The Humber Bridge Farmers’ Market is held on the first Sunday of each month, and is accredited by FARMA.

The event regularly attracts over 5,000 visitors and ample free parking is available on site.

The next market will offer a selection of locally produced meat, vegetables, fruit, preserves, bread, cheese, and local speciality produce as well as craft stalls.
