Pennoyer Centre at Pulham St Mary celebrates successful first farmers’ market

A farmers' market network in south Norfolk received a boost at the weekend with the opening of a new monthly market.

Officials at the Pennoyer Centre at Pulham St Mary were toasting their first ever farmers' market, which will become a monthly event on the village's events calendar.

Fifteen traders selling local produce and crafts attended the inaugural Pennoyer Centre market on Saturday, which was held in the historic building's guild chapel.

Sheila King, chairman of the centre, said: 'We had a huge number of visitors from the village and further afield and it has created a real buzz and people are excited about having a local farmers' market.'

'Most people think we are bonkers to set up a market in the middle of February, but come April, May and June, we will have fresh fruit and veg and plants on sale.'

Officials are looking to stage the market on the fourth Saturday of every month.'
