Happy 10th Birthday to Beaconsfield Farmers Market
When the first farmers' market was launched in March 2002 it was to an unknown reception. At the time it was a completely new concept for the people of Beaconsfield and no one knew how it would be received. Like anything new, it was met with a degree of suspicion at first!
Three months' later, in July, it moved across the road to its present location, the charter market site in Windsor End, Old Beaconsfield. It hasn't looked back since and the market has become firmly established on the local scene.
Diane Harker, Market Manager says: "I put this down to the enthusiastic support of local people who not only appreciate the exceptionally wide choice of fresh and quality produce always on offer but are also keen to encourage their local producers".
Joining the 30+ producers for the first time will be Kate Keane from Gerrards Cross who has recently launched her tasty and healthy wholemeal pizzas into selected local shops.
The market takes place on Saturday, 24 March from 9.00 am – 12.30 pm at Windsor End, The Old Town. The toast and address by the Mayor will take place at approximately 10am.
