Good Reasons to Take Advantage of our local Markets

  • Often more affordable than the big retailers
  • The small retailers value your individual custom.
  • Local produce is often fresher than that from the bigger retailers, having a shorter route to market
  • Market sellers know the products they sell. If you want to know how to use a product or how to cook something then just ask.
  • If we don't use it we could lose it
  • Help boost the local economy
