Public consultation underway for Stevenage farmers’ market
A PUBLIC consultation is underway for the return of the Stevenage farmers market to the High Street.
Members of the public will have the opportunity to voice their comments relating to the proposal to move the farmers market from the rear car park of the High Street’s White Lion Pub to the High Street in the Old Town.
Hugh Madgin, chairman of the Stevenage farmer’s market committee, said: “We are keeping our fingers crossed and are delighted by the support that’s been shown for the markets move to its rightful place. The farmers market is to revitalise Stevenage High Street for the whole of Stevenage.”
The farmers market is being proposed to be held on Saturdays between 8am and 6pm. It is being anticipated that the market will be held on no more that 12 occasions per year.
Councillor for Stevenage Old Town, Marilyn Yarnold-Forrester, said: “We’re very confident we can get through this hurdle and I think it is fantastic that the farmers market will be in the Old Town. We have all worked very hard for the market to be moved to the High Street and we are now just waiting for the green light from the council.”
