Farmers Market In Kenilworth To Continue

Local farmers will be able to continue selling their wares in Kenilworth despite development work at the site of their normal monthly market.

Property owners Jalna have given the market organisers permission to switch the sale from Abbey End to Talisman Square.

The shopping area in Abbey End, which was built in the 1960s, is being refurbished at cost of £400,000.

A market outside the shops selling produce from farms in a 30-mile radius proved a big hit when a trial was held last year.

It is now a regular feature, and monthly sessions are held in Kenilworth on the second Saturday of each month, with the market also regularly visiting Leamington and Stratford.

The sale will be held in Talisman Square this Saturday 11 March, 8 April and 13 May.

Jonathon Boyle of managing agents Innes England said: 

"The quality of Farmersí Markets and the numbers of people that they bring into the town centre means that Jalna are very happy to help out during the time that the programmed works at Abbey End are underway.

"Jalna have committed themselves to Kenilworth and this is one of the ways that they can promote their investment."

The markets have proved a hit with local shoppers as they only sell seasonal goods from farmers in the area.

Warwickshire Farmers Market Co-ordinator James Pavitt said visitors would not be able to find oranges, pineapples or kumquats at the markets.

He added: 

"People like the fact that we apply the three golden rules of Farmersí Markets: producers must be local, they must sell their own produce, and the person selling must be the producer."
