This weekend marks the one year anniversary of the return of the farmners’ market after the very first lockdown in Spring 2020 and we’re delighted to not have missed one since. Yes, there have been some changes: our larger area around Hexham Abbey has been a real success and most of our producers now take card payments.
We’re deligthed to welcome back this week Mari and Geoff from Cumberland Mustard and Julie from Pure Plants. Northern Ark, Hexham Country Market and Tim Foxall will all be with us, as well as most of the rest of our wonderful prodcuers who have kept coming right throughout that past year. We’ll also be bringing back music for the first time since late 2019! Missing this week with be Bluebell Organics and Stonehouse Smokery, as they are both having a well-deserved break.
Now that the scaffolding around the abbey is all gone we’ll be using the area along the footpath to the Sele again and you’ll find four of our producers there. You can find a full plan for the market here.
