Farmers market becomes weekend fixture

THE manager of a new farmers? market in Henley hopes that holding it at the weekend will encourage more customers

THE manager of a new farmers? market in Henley hopes that holding it at the weekend will encourage more customers.

The second monthly market took place in Market Place on Saturday. Twelve businesses had stalls selling a range of food including lamb, shellfish and Indian delicacies.


Caroline Tyler, who ran the Old Farm Shop stall, said: ?Saturday is the best day to hold a market as it?s shopping day for a lot of our customers.

?People seemed to like it and they're getting to know that it's here. Hopefully the more people that know, the more will attend."

Mark Lees, who ran the Crayfish Capers seafood stall, said: "I had plenty of business and there were a lot of knowledgeable people. I suppose it's because the River Thames is packed with fish. "Markets are starting to come back up. I've been doing them for two years now and business is getting more consistent." The stallholders will also be at the established farmers? market which is held on the fourth Thursday of the month.
