A new farmers’ market is being launched in Wooler next month to provide an outlet for local foods and crafts in the area.

The first event will be on Sunday, May 20, in the village’s bus station and will run from 11am to 3pm.

In line with the guidance for farmers’ markets, stalls at the event will be restricted to people who make or grow their own goods and who live within a 50-mile radius of Wooler.

As an introductory offer, the cost of booking a place will be £15 or £10 if producers bring their own stall.

The market will be run as a not-for-profit enterprise. Any money not ploughed back into the market will go to supporting local community projects.

Book a place by emailing woolerfarmersmarket@gmail.com or call Bob on 07940 454960 for details.
