From 9am on Thursday 16th March, the Farmers' and Producers' Market returns to the Market Place, bringing a fabulous selection of locally produced food and drink, hand-crafted items, art and more.
It's a great opportunity to support small local businesses, ensure low food miles, and shop with traders who know all about what they're selling.
Open from 9am until approximately 4pm, or earlier if the stalls sell out (which sometimes happens).
