Fresh-n-local farmers Markets Update

Dear Friends,

We have continued to run our markets throughout the latest lockdowns. Stroud and Gloucester have been running every week and Stow is now on its twice monthly summer cycle. We would like to extend our thanks to the fantastic support the markets have had from locals during these difficult times, and we look forward to the time when things can fully open up again. We are delighted to announce the return of non-essential stalls to our markets from April 16th 2021.

We will be working hard to make our markets safe for shopping and we ask that customers avoid long journeys to markets, instead going to their local markets for their weekly shop. Please be aware current guidelines are that people should continue to socially distance and that social distancing rules are set to be in place until late June so please attend markets mindful of those around you.

Be assured that being out in the fresh air is a much safer way to shop.

As ever, we aim to bring you the best local produce, week after week.
