Family friendly Farsley Farmers Market prepares for St George’s Day

By Jo Reilly

Our eighth anniversary in March attracted customers from near and far with some new faces and many young families.

Free facepainting by our friendly face painter, Debra Austin, and some exceptional Juggling from Matt Tiffany, proved to be a popular combination!

Our guest stallholders created a celebratory feel with Northern Shakers ready mixed cocktails and Tipsy Bakes alcohol infused cup cakes. Regulars Yorkshire Chocolatier launched a liqueur fondant range while Woods Brownies included a ‘no alcohol’ rum and raisin brownie too! 

The warm spring sunshine really made for a perfect family friendly morning in Farsley.

Join us next on St George’s Day, 23rd April, when we will have the Festival team providing a craft workshop who, with your help, will be building a Village to display at this year’s event held on the Jubilee Weekend. Enjoy our regular stallholders like Calverley Beekeepers, Country Store, India Express & Yorkshire Pie, and inside – Florentina, Tracy Haigh, Stiltwalker’s and Friends Book Sale. Guesting outside this month are Cabbage Patch Bakery, Wildwood Florist, Love2Grow eco cleaning, and in St John’s hall find Little Shop of Wood & V-Happy Crafts, Tropic Skincare & the team from MHA Farsley with goody bags for all.

We provide some seating indoors and out for when you’re ready to order a hot sandwich or just a drink – you can select from a range sold at the Beantastic stall or choose a Fairtrade blend from the Market Kitchen (still manned by a family bubble).

Looking ahead to the summer markets, you can expect regular attractions and entertainment plus more visiting stallholders.

Once again we take this opportunity to thank you for your attendance and thank our more familiar traders who (barring illness) have been a constant throughout the Covid troubles and we hope you continue to support them too.
