Following a break in January, the monthly Humber Bridge Farmers’ Market will return for its first event of 2011 on Sunday 6th February, at the Bridge viewing area in Hessle.
Neil Marshall, Business Manager for the Humber Bridge said:
“2010 was an eventful year for the farmers’ market, with an estimated 60,000 people visiting throughout the year. 2010 saw our re-launch in April, we added a dedicated arts and crafts section in October, and achieved FARMA accreditation in November. We have ambitious expansion plans for 2011, and are looking to develop and cement our reputation as the region’s premier farmers’ market.”
David Tite, a representative of Driffield Agricultural Society, said:
“Despite being the shortest month, February is a great time for British produce, and the Humber Bridge Farmers’ market has everything you need to rustle up a romantic valentines treat or winter warmer. Alongside the plumpest mussels, brassicas like cauliflower, cabbage and kale are also at their absolute best this month.”
The market has been certified by FARMA (The National Farmers' Retail & Market Association) which means it has local farmers, growers and food businesses selling their own produce directly to customers
The Humber Bridge Farmers’ Market is held on the first Sunday of every month at the Humber Bridge viewing area in Hessle, in association with Driffield Agricultural society. Since its re-launch in April 2010, it has attracted around 5000 visitors to each event.
The next market will be held on Sunday February 6th 2011, 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 craft stalls selling a wide selection of crafts created by regional artisans, including handmade soaps, candles and bags.
