A ONCE-FLOURISHING farmers’ market that was in danger of closing due to dwindling stalls will be re-launched this weekend.
In its heyday, Sedgefield Farmers’ Market featured up to 17 stalls, selling everything from plants and eggs, to cakes and meat.
However, in recent years, the number of traders pitching up each month has fallen considerably and, in bad weather, there could be as few as one or two stalls.
Sedgefield Development Trust, a charity that funds community projects, was determined to save the market and, on April 1, it took over responsibility from Sedgefield Town Council.
