Expanded Humber Bridge Market returns.

Following its expansion to include a local arts and crafts area in October, the monthly Humber Bridge Farmers’ Market will return on Sunday November 7th at the Bridge viewing area in Hessle.

Now offering a wide range of the best arts and crafts, in addition to the freshest local produce, the market has become one of the largest monthly Farmers’ Markets in Yorkshire, attracting between 3000 and 5000 visitors per month since its re-launch in April 2010.

David Tite, a representative of Driffield Agricultural Society, said:

“The market has been a real hit with the local community, and I would urge anyone who hasn’t visited the market since its re-launch to come down for the day. All the food sold at the market is grown, reared or produced by stallholders from the region, who are directly involved in the production process. This means that visitors can be sure of the traceability, quality and welfare standards of all produce, whilst supporting the local farming economy.

“Winter may be approaching, but November is a fantastic time for British produce. Root vegetables like baking potatoes are at their best this time of year and pumpkins, squashes and parsnips are all in season, ideal for those warming winter casseroles! November also sees the first of the Brussels sprouts arrive at the market, along with other Christmas favorites such as goose, ready for the festive season.”

The next market will be held on Sunday November 7th 2010, and will offer a huge selection of locally produced meat, vegetables, fruit, preserves, bread and cheese, as well as a range of local speciality produce. In addition, there will be over 30 craft stalls attending with a wide selection of crafts created by regional artisans, including handmade soaps, candles and bags. Ample free parking is provided on site.
