New 2017 look for Stone Farmers Market!

If you popped along to the ever popular Farmers’ Market in Stone last Saturday you will have noticed a fresh new look to the stalls that lined the High Street.

Now one of the largest markets in the county, Stone Farmers’ Market has a vast array of food, drink as well as gifts and craft stalls.

For 2017 Stafford Borough Council have invested in 24 brand new marquees in partnership with a new contractor who will take on the responsibility for their construction and de-construction each market day.

The Borough Council has run the markets for more than a decade and Councillor Frances Beatty, Cabinet member for Planning and Regeneration, said:

“The Farmers’ Market creates such a buzz around Stafford and Stone and we are delighted we have been able to give it a fresh new look this year.

“The success of these markets demonstrates how visitors and residents appreciate buying fresh, quality products and supporting our niche traders.”

The new marquees will be used for both the Stone and Stafford Farmers’ Markets.

Scott Evans, for the new contractor, Bescot Promotions, said:

“We are very pleased to be working alongside Stafford Borough Council as their new  stall contractors for the very popular Stone and Stafford farmers markets. We hope that working together we can not only continue the success of both markets but also help to build on them in the future.”
