RYE’S successful weekly farmers’ market is to be used as a blueprint for a new market at Bexhill.
The man behind the scheme is Iden organic farmer Christopher Strangeways, who is also the driving force behind Rother Environment Group.
A meeting is taking place in Bexhill next week to move the idea forward, with Devonshire Square ear-marked as it’s open air venue.
Mr strangeways said: “The meeting is the initiative of the Bexhill Environmental Group who has setting up asked me to have a go at organising a series of trial markets in Devonshire Square.
“I originally offered to help as I had experience setting up the Rye Farmers’ Market in 2001.
