Visitors to this month’s Farmers Market in Crewkerne, received a free hot drink for venturing out during Storm Dennis. The monthly market, normally held outside of Henhayes Centre was “tucked up inside” on Saturday morning. Regular stall holders were joined for the day by Steve with his fresh fish and shell fish. The Fishman With A Difference, accepted the offer of an indoor pitch at Crewkerne Farmers Market when the outdoor Whiteladies Farmers’ Market was cancelled due to the amber weather alert for the region. A spokesperson for Somerset Farmers Market said: “Bristol’s loss was Crewkerne’s gain!”
Crewkerne Farmers Market co-ordinator Hannah, who served the teas and coffees on Saturday said: “We are very grateful to the Henhayes Centre for providing us with shelter from the gale force winds and heavy rain. A huge thank you to all our customers who braved the elements to support the market and our regular producers, West Country Water Buffalo, Bower Hinton Farm Produce, North Perrott Fruit Farm,Somerset Cheese Company, Ali’s Homemade Produce and Katy’s Bakes.” Crewkerne Farmers Market is looking forward to being back outside of Henhayes Centre next month, from 9 am until 1 pm, on Saturday March 21st.
