FEARS have been raised about the death of Stroud High Street if a new operator is appointed to take over the town’s award-winning farmers’ market.
The decision by Stroud District Council (SDC) to invite new bidders to run the Saturday market has provoked anger and disbelief among stallholders, who have rallied to the cause of the current operator Made in Stroud by setting up a petition in support of its owner Gerb Gerbrands.
Mr Gerbrands founded the farmers’ market with the proprietor of the Made In Stroud shop Clare Honeyfield back in 1999 with assistance from SDC.
