Article excerpt

ALNWICK Farmers' Markets is celebrating its 10th birthday on Friday, June 26.

Ten years ago, the first farmers' market established in Northumberland had only a handful of traders.

Over the years, this has now grown to a regular monthly market with more than 20 different producers selling a variety of home made and locally sourced goods.

Alnwick Farmers' Market is now a well established date on the calendar, held on the last Friday of each month.

Still held in the cobbled marketplace, the market sells fantastic fresh produce, baked goods and quality crafts and jewellery. It showcases the talent and diverse flavours of the region and lets the public meet the producer face to face.

Throughout the years the market has flourished and in more recent times has seen a surge of new customers eager for a bargain and keen to promote their local community.

To celebrate its 10th year, Alnwick Farmers' Market will be holding a celebration and special events on Friday June 26. As well as the regular stalls, there'll be a number of competitions and special demonstrations between 9am and 2pm.

You could win a fabulous hamper of local produce (donated by the stallholders) or a runner's up prize of money off vouchers to be spent at the stalls. All you have to do to enter this free draw is to complete the coupon below and post it in the box on

Look on the notice board at the Alnwick Markets stall for details of times and what he's cooking at his two presentations. …
