SHOCK greeted news this week (September 9) that Midhurst’s farmers’ market could face the axe.
Spiralling costs and falling takings left many traders making a loss – and the Midhurst market is kept afloat only by the Chichester and Petworth farmers’ markets.
The news comes barely a month after the town’s new market square was unveiled in August.
Hopes were high the new square would become home for the market, which currently takes place in North Street once every two months.
“I think now is the time for Midhurst Town Council to start shouting,” said town councillor Steve Morley on Tuesday, in reference to an article in the Observer entitled: A market square that’s worth shouting about, to herald the square’s official opening.
