Our hamper draw for customers to the farmers’ market on Saturday 13 April 2019 had a local winner: Sue Reed from near Bardon Mill. One of Sue’s tickets was first out the box at the draw at about quarter to one on Saturday. Sue used to trade at the market as the Woolly Pedlar and she was delighted to receive her farmers’ market goodies.
Our prize draw proved to be a real success with hundreds of tickets going into the draw and many customers being amazed that the the entry was free to anyone buying at the market on the day. Hexham Farmers’ Market producers were very happy to contribute as a way of saying ‘thank you’ to all the customers who support the market through all weathers. Many of them have been coming for years and we even spoke to someone who came to the very first one in 1999!
We are looking to do a similar activity sometime during the summer, so keep your eye on the website and on our social media.
