Real Food Markets – under new management
Posted on: 29 June 2018
As we build up to another exciting FOODfest event, we are reminded more than ever of why Barnstaple is so rightly proud of its fantastic Pannier Market – open six days a week with a massive range of stalls. Friday is the main produce day, displaying a dizzying array of seasonal good (including Organic and Soil Association approved) produced by our local farmers and businesses.
In addition to the traditional market days, Barnstaple Pannier Market is delighted to be running the ever popular Real Food Markets. Featuring a wide variety of food producers, artisan, gourmet and street food, this celebration of all things local takes place on the second Sunday of every month.
Barnstaple Town Centre Manager, Hannah Harrington says: “We are so excited to have taken over the running of this popular event and hope that we will be able to build on what has already been a series of very popular markets. We want to encourage even more people to come and enjoy the huge variety of food which is on offer here at the Pannier Market.”
Executive Member for Economic Development, Councillor Pat Barker, says: “We are so lucky to have such a thriving market on our doorsteps, with a wonderful atmosphere and such a variety of traders throughout the week. The Monthly Real Food Markets also have a strong following and I’m really pleased they will be continuing.”
The next Real Food Market – which has plenty of seating available – will take place on Sunday 8 July. There’ll be music, face painting and additional entertainment to keep you amused as you soak up the atmosphere and sample the delicious food and drinks on offer!
