Gainsborough’s monthly Farmers’ and Craft Market returns

Shoppers will still be able to stock up on essential items as Gainsborough’s monthly Farmers’ and Craft Market returns this month.

The market will take place on Saturday, January 9, from 9am to 3pm.

Traders forming the line up at the first monthly market of 2021 will be offering fresh produce including fresh cuts of meat and fish, hand prepared fishcakes, freshly baked bread and sweet treats at the outdoor market in Market Place.

The market welcomes returning trader, fishmonger Patrick Capps, selling a variety of fresh fish and once again, the award winning Redhill Farm Free Range Pork will be joining the line-up.

The monthly market moved from its original location on Market Street to Market Place in June 2020 which allows the market to adhere to all current Covid-19 safety guidelines including socially distanced stalls, wide accessible areas plus there are hand sanitisers on each stall.

Charlotte Toplass, Marshall’s Yard tenant liaison executive, said: “Gainsborough’s Farmers’ and Craft market makes a welcome return in 2021 and will be open to essential traders, providing shoppers with safe access to locally sourced, freshly prepared produce in an outdoor setting.

“We are pleased the market is able to operate under the latest safety measures and we look forward to welcoming all traders selling both essential and non-essential goods back once again when restrictions are eased, and it is safe to do so."
