Spring Market 2014


The first of the regular markets at the all new Village Hall in Husthwaite on Sunday was a huge success. The weather, on the day, could not have been better for the 21 stallholders; 3 of which were outside, including some woolly visitors from Beacon Alpacas, helping draw shoppers in.

Some 340 in all passed through the doors, marvelling at the variety and quality of the goods and partaking of the great food from the refreshments team.

‘The atmosphere was buzzing and the positive comments from both shoppers and stallholders, has been wonderful' say the organisers, ‘and we have learnt a great deal'. ‘We want to make sure that our stallholders are comfortable in their space and that the flow is such that shoppers see the variety of products and produce on offer ', said Annabel. Debbie and Lynn agreed.

We hope to continue to offer variety and quality at our next 3 markets; to keep things fresh making them a pleasurable shopping experience for all'. ‘We know we can increase the Artisan bread order' said Lynn. ‘And we would also like to offer a space to a fruit and veg stallholder, to increase the ‘produce' side, giving a good balance of products.

So, thank you, to all the stallholders and shoppers who made Sunday a brilliant start to the future Markets of Husthwaite. And put the 15th of June in your diaries now, so you don't miss the summer event.
