FLEDGLING businesses are being given a helping hand to make a name for themselves thanks to Penzance Farmers’ Market.
The weekly showcase for locally produced fare has been fuelled thanks to a hunger by shoppers to support grassroots business, helping to shelter many from the economic struggles of other town traders.
With around 20 stallholders and plans to hold another market in the centre of town on a weekend, business is said to be buzzing for local food and craft traders.
“When the traders get good feedback about their products it encourages them to keep pushing and promote themselves,” said Brenda Lemon, co-ordinator for the Friday market, which is held at St John’s Hall.
“Apart from keeping the market going, my job is also about small business development. Each of these stallholders are small businesses and it is my job to help them on their way.”
