A town’s fight-back against the pull of the supermarket has stepped-up a gear with the relaunch of its market.
Local traders in Holsworthy, North Devon, want to win customers back from the big stores through its revamped market.
The Holsworthy market was restarted yesterday and will run every Wednesday, including some 35 pop-up stalls.
Jon Hutchings, of Holsworthy Town Council and publican of the White Hart Hotel in Holsworthy, said: “It’s aimed at helping traders while trying to bring new traders into the town, letting people know Holsworthy is a thriving little town – with a good range of shops and market stalls on a Wednesday.”
