THE POPULAR Droitwich Farmers’ Market which has been going from strength to strength over the last 15 years is undergoing a revamp in a bid to make it grow even further.
The markets currently offer a range of food and drink from local producers including meat and sausages, fruit and vegetables, cake, cheeses, jams and cider.
But now, following a link up between the organisers and Janet Yates, the Droitwich Spa Business Partnership Manager for Wychavon District Council, some of the markets will be themed.
The first, a Droitwich Spa Community Market, will be held tomorrow (Saturday) in Victoria Square.
As well as the usual stalls, there will also be ones for local community groups and businesses such as charities, local crafts and the Norbury Theatre.
Further themed markets are planned over the coming months including a Boffy Arts Market in June, another community market in October and a youth market towards the end of the year.
Craig Thornton, from Worcestershire Farmers’ Market Group, said he thought it was a great new scheme which would hopefully provide an added attraction, along with helping the local community and businesses.
“We can provide the market stalls and would be happy to hear from local community groups, schools and the like who might be interested in taking part.
“Customers can be assured that we will still have our usual range of food and drink stalls, but obviously some new ones to add interest to their visit.”
