Farsley Farmers’ Market, now in its ninth year, runs on the fourth Saturday morning of each month in St John’s Church car park, just off Old Road, with the exceptions of the August break and in December, when it is brought forward.
This December it will run on the 17th with a special Christmas theme.
The market on Saturday, 26 November included several local stands already restocked with Christmas in mind and others whose regular supplies gain popularity during the festive season.
