Farmers’ markets in south Cumbria have been affected by the theft of a van containing stalls and other equipment.
The Ford Transit, used by a community enterprise company Orton Farmers’ Ltd, was taken from a farm near Tebay.
Inside were 15 green and white striped pop-up stalls, a generator, weights, a PA system and signage.
The market co-ordinator said that renting the items would greatly add to the cost of the events, which benefit local farmers and other businesses.
Leanne Duerden said: “This equipment isn’t just used at Orton Farmers’ Market but is also shared with the markets at Brampton, Cartmel and Pooley Bridge so it is a huge loss.
