Farmers market to start in Emsworth

HAMPSHIRE Farmers’ Market is set to arrive in Emsworth this month.

Stalls will be set up in Palmers Road car park from 10am to 2pm on Saturday, January 19.

Market business manager Alex Handford said, rather than threatening existing businesses, the market would increase footfall.

“We are looking forward to working closely with the Emsworth community and retailers and to complement the established retail offering in the town,” she said.

“Retailers in all of our market locations benefit from the additional shoppers the markets help to attract and the coffee shops, pubs and restaurants also enjoy increased custom. We are confident Emsworth will benefit in the same way.”
