Following the recent move to Market Place, the market offers a widely accessible area in which to browse the variety of stalls selling seasonal produce, sweet treats, bespoke crafts and gifts.

This month’s market on Saturday, October 10, from 9am to 3pm welcomes new trader Rubecula Aromary, selling handmade vegan wax melts.

Business owner Sophie Scutt launched her enterprise during lockdown and since then has gone from strength to strength with customers snapping up her soy wax melts in a range of luxurious fragrances inspired by the Lincolnshire countryside.
