The second weekend of the month means Little Bird Made will be bringing their outdoor artisan markets to Easingwold and Wetherby this weekend. The Town Mayor of Wetherby, Councillor Neil O’Byrne will be visiting the market on Sunday in his home town to speak to traders and customers.
The markets are a great opportunity to support local businesses and buy unique products that are not available in the shops. Many of the traders are small independent businesses or people with a hobby or passion, that they have grown into a small business opportunity. Every trader works hard to design, make and publicise their products, so each purchase a customer makes is genuinely supporting local people to fulfil their dreams and ambitions.
Even though times are difficult for everyone just now, by supporting these small businesses and shopping at local shops within town centres, it will ensure they are able to continue trading and be able to follow their dreams.
Each market will have a wide variety of stalls and is an opportunity to start your Christmas shopping, safe in the knowledge your gift will be unique. Many traders offer personalised goods, and it’s important to order them in plenty time for the holiday season. There are also lots of food and drink stalls with locally produced items to stock up your cupboards or enjoy for lunch. If you are looking for local honey, jams, preserves, cheese, cakes and bakes. There are also a variety of street food traders with tempting menus for brunch, lunch while you walk round the market or to take home and enjoy in the comfort of your home.
The markets will take place this weekend in the following locations:
Saturday 8th October, 9am – 2pm, Market Place, Easingwold YO61 3AA
Sunday 9th October, 10am – 3pm, Market Place Wetherby LS22 6NE
