Farmers Come To Market In Leamington

Another effort at holding a farmers’ market in Leamington is to be held next week to try and bring life back to the old town.

Community groups and retailers are working together to make the Clemens Street sale a success.

Resolve to improve the turn-out has been increased because of a disappointing result at the last market in April.

Town Centre manager Ian Coker said:

"We were all delighted with the response to the first Farmers Market in February.

 "However the combination of poor weather, the Easter holiday and the Farmers Market the day before in Warwick meant we were all a little disappointed with the April market.

“We plan to do all we can to make 24 June a real success which will give farmers and customers the confidence to visit on a regular basis. "

The determination to do everything possible to support the Farmers Market has led to the formation of the "Friends of Old Town Markets Group" which will be supporting markets in the old town.

Their first opportunity to work together on this project will be by organising additional advertising, entertainment and activities at the next Farmers Market which takes place in Clemens Street on 24 June between 9am and 2pm.

Eeva John who is involved with the group, said:

"The provision of a free bus service from the Parade on the day of the market, a strong line up of local talent to entertain the crowds and the support of traders in the area will mean that we expect to see the crowds flocking to the Old Town."

"We want the Farmers Market to become a regular part of life in the Old Town and will be working hard to make the farmers and customers feel very welcome."
