We’re coming back!

That’s the message from Axminster Country Market after a long summer off.

The local cooks, gardeners and crafters will be returning to run the weekly event at the Masonic Hall in South Street from Thursday September 3 at the new time of 9am.

On offer will be a variety of cakes, pastries, meals, crafts, jam, flowers, veg and free-range eggs.

Following a few retirements, the market was running at a slightly reduced capacity over the oast year, but with several new producers ready to take up the challenge, organisers say the future is looking exciting.

Country markets are a nationwide co-operative, growing and cooking to high standards, with full supervision from environmental health, and everything is made from genuine ingredients in home kitchens.

Customers often become life-long friends, and there is always a friendly welcome.

The Masonic Hall is situated between Halff Project Food and The Nail Studio and parking is just a stone’s throw away in Coombe Street.
