Since 2020 began there have been a few changes to the personnel, writes Jo Reilly.
Namely the departure of Paul Tudge, who was a founder member and the Vicar of St John’s. At Christmas we bid a fond farewell to Paul and his family. The team is still made up of members of the Farsley community and they are Ray Sheller, Chris Birks, Jo Reilly and Bev Tuke.
The team have been busy putting Covid 19 safety measures in place and can finally announce the return of Farsley Farmers Market on Saturday 25th July – our first Market since cancelling the 28 March anniversary event!
At the return event, safety measures will include a one-way system, social distancing and hand sanitisers and we hope you will comply so that all Farsley community can #staysafe.
We have taken care to allow correct spacing of the stalls and to select a good mix of traders for the reduced number of pitches, and all of them complying with Covid 19 guidelines.
The event will be marshalled by volunteers recently appointed following the appeal on facebook.
The market itself will not look much different except that there will be No Access to the Church Hall toilets and no hot food or drinks on sale.
To allow extra time for the safe set-up of the market Stalls, a new start time was agreed upon by the team.
The lockdown market will trade from 10am to 1pm.
Please join us on 25th July and, if you prefer to pick up orders ready and waiting for you, check out and contact the traders soon to be listed in the event post on the market Facebook page.
Traders will provide card payments options and/or a safe cash system on the day.
