Shoppers in Bolton will be in for a treat this Sunday (26 April) with the re-launch of the farmers’ market into a new-look local produce market.
The council will take over the running of the market, which takes place in Victoria Square, following a one-year contract with Group Geraud.
Top local chef Mike Harrison, owner of Zest Fine Food, will launch the market with a cooking demonstration at 10.30am, using ingredients from the range of fresh produce on offer. He will also be cooking at 11.45am and 1pm.
There will be an array of locally sourced goods from around 20 traders selling fresh fruit and vegetables; quality meats; speciality breads; cheeses; home-baked cakes; chutneys and jams and even handmade soap and body care products.
All the market stalls have been given a make-over and now feature the eye-catching Bolton brand.
Shoppers can also pick up free booklets with seasonal recipes and take advantage of free Sunday parking in the town centre. Entertainment will be provided by the Eagley Band.
The market will continue to take place every fourth Sunday of the month in Victoria Square, from 10am to 2pm.
