For the first time ever, Barton-upon-Humber will have its own regular market, allowing residents to buy food and handmade gifts from local suppliers.
The market will take place from 8.30am to 2pm on the first Saturday of every month across the Market Place and George Street in the North Lincolnshire town.
However, there will be no market on Saturday, June 4 due to the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
Visitors will be able to choose from a variety of local stallholders, selling everything from locally sourced food to unique home decor.
It comes following a successful Barton FoodFest earlier this year, which saw traders sell out in a matter of hours, and it is hoped the addition of a regular market will continue to boost the local economy.
Councillor Carl Sherwood, cabinet member for safer, stronger communities: rural, said: “I know many residents will be as thrilled as I am to see a brand-new monthly market open in Barton-upon-Humber.
“As the crowds that flocked to the FoodFest in March showed, there is a real appetite for locally sourced, quality products in North Lincolnshire.
“I’d call on local people to shop local and support the stallholders and businesses on our doorstep – they are the lifeblood of our economy and take enormous pride, not just in their wonderful products, but in their customer service too.”
