This afternoon was the AGM of Penzance Farmers Market. I am very happy to announce that I was voted in to be Chairman for the coming year.
Over the past 5 years, the Penzance Farmer Market has grown into a successful market with its regular Friday Morning Market in front of St Johns Hall, Penzance.
Over the coming year the Market will be facing a number of important issues, the major one being the refurbishment of St John’s Hall in Penzance.
Currently the Market operates in the forecourt of St John’s Hall in clement weather, moving into the Hall itself if the weather is inclement.
From March of next year, the Market will be operating outside in all weathers, not in the forecourt, but alongside the forecourt in the lower part of the car park. This will continue through until October, from October through the winter we have to find a suitable indoor venue, this is something that we are currently investigating.
The good news is that the market is continuing to grow and we are looking at obtaining funding to increase the number of stalls available for stallholders and increased storage space for them.
To our current customers a big thank you and we will be still trading throughout the redevelopment at St John’s Hall, returning to the forecourt once its complete, and for those who are yet to find us come along on a Friday morning for great local produce.
