Farmer’s market closed

WETHERBY farmer’s market was closed this month due to a lack of market traders.

Town Clerk Barabara Ball said the market did not run as normal on the second Sunday of this month as “there were insufficient stall holders to make the market viable.”

Mrs Ball said that due to the date falling so close to Christmas, January 7, it was harder to attract shoppers than if the date had fallen later in the month, as has happened in previous years.

The market would run as normal next month on February 12, Mrs Ball said.
