HB Farmers' Market shaping up well

Stall holders lining up for market plan

Plans for a farmers' market in the Bay are gaining pace, with organiser Vanessa Hill already lining up stall holders.

She received a flurry of calls after being featured in last week's Times and plans to hold the first of the fortnightly markets on Saturday March 3 in the Methodist church hall in the High Street.

The Bay mum, who works as a cook, said:

"I've already had some very promising calls from people. There are people who are looking to sell homemade chutneys, cakes, all sorts of local produce. I'm really keen to hear from people who could do locally produced fruit and veg, as well as butchers.

But we're open to having a few craft stalls as well. So jewellery makers or anybody with a particular talent they'd like to share are welcome to get in touch."

Got an idea for a stall? Call Vanessa Hill on 07740 586 010.

This is a great idea.. Well done Vanessa.. we will be there to support it, and in the future we hope to have a stall of our own there..
A Thought.. If this becomes popular, how about extending it and looking at Herne Bay becoming a Transition Town? provides all the information and support we will need to build a stronger, greener community... I am very happy to get involved if there are others who feel the same..?
