Plymouth Farmers Market to Return

Posted on 9th September 2011 in Plymouth Events


The popular Plymouth Farmers’ Market is set to return to the city centre on Saturday 17 September. The market, which was previously situated in New George Street in Plymouth’s West End, will be taking place in Armada Way as the first step in re-introducing it to the city’s central thoroughfare.

Plymouth City Centre Company has been in discussion with the traders to decide on the best location for the market to draw in as many customers as possible for them as well as for the surrounding businesses.  Fifteen traders will be taking part in next Saturday’s Farmers’ Market, and the hope is that if it is a success it will be able to return as a fortnightly event.

Clint Jones, Plymouth City Centre Manager said: “The Farmers’ Market is very important to the city as it brings added vibrancy and choice for shoppers. The market didn’t work as well as we hoped at the bottom of New George Street and we have been working closely with the traders to decide on the best way to bring it back. We are confident that the new location in Armada Way will be a success. “There is a fantastic range of excellent quality local produce available right here on our doorstep, and we really want to make the most of that as well as attracting even more local farmers to take part.”

The Famers’ Market will be taking place in Armada Way on Saturday 17 September.

Plymouth City Council Leader Vivien Pengelly added: “Plymouth champions its local farmers and we want to find the best way of showcasing their produce to shoppers. I hope lots of people come to support the Farmers’ Market when it reopens in Armada Way and stock up on some of the delicious, locally produced food and drink on offer.
