Liverpool City Council only took control of the city’s markets 10 days ago – but it’s already having an impact.
The city’s first speciality market under the new regime has trebled in size!
Woolton Farmers Market is back with a bang tomorrow (October 8), with 27 stalls – up from its usual number of 9.
Councillor Malcolm Kennedy, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, said: ”The response to the council taking control of the city’s markets from stall holders across Liverpool, and the North West, has been quite phenomenal.
”We have a plan for how we want to manage, promote and develop the markets and clearly that message has hit home as the phones haven’t stopped ringing since we took over!
”Woolton Farmer’s Market has unfortunately been a quiet affair – but not tomorrow. We’re delighted the traders have responded so enthusiastically. It has given a huge boost to the plans we have for the future.”
Woolton Farmers Market will be selling locally produced hand made goods and meat and veg direct from local farms.
Get down to Woolton Village tomorrow and enjoy locally sourced treats, sea food, cakes, jams, chutney, pies, nuts, olives, organic products, cheese, plants & flowers, art & craft by local artists.
