For one day only: change of Farmers' market closing time
Regular customers of Hexham Farmers' Market are encouraged to come and do their shopping early on Saturday 26 October 2013 as the market will close at 12noon on that day. This change will allow the Hexham Community Partnership to set up some of the rides which will form a big part of the Hexham Spook Night which will open at 3pm that same afternoon.
Peter Samsom, the farmers' market organiser for Hexham said: "I apologise in advance for any inconvenience this might cause our customers, but by finishing a little early we'll be able to help this very popular event in the centre of the town. We'll be back to our usual finishing time of 1.30pm on our first market in November, which will be on the 9th."
On Saturday Beaumont Street in Hexham will be closed and producers at the farmers' market will pack up as swiftly and efficiently as they can, but some congestion is likely.
