AN INDOOR producers' market has returned to its original home in a north Suffolk town.

After pitching up in the village hall at Holton for the past two years, the monthly Halesworth Producers' Market returned to new premises in its home town at the weekend.

Situated at 18b, The Throughfare, the traders are delighted to be back selling their array of mouth-watering goods.

Lotty Barbour, the organising founder of the market, who sells beef from her farm in nearby Cratfield, said: “It is good to be back in Halesworth. The fact is the market will be good for the town as well.

“We have introduced new customers into the town and I am pretty sure they will come to the market and shop in the town at the same time.

“Most of the producers and customers had been asking us for a long while to get back into the town and now we have managed it.

“So many people came in this morning and said how pleased they were to see us back in the town.

“Bearing in mind what the weather has been like we have had a good amount of people and lots of old faces.”

Around 16 producers are involved in the market, which will run on the second Saturday of every month from 9am - 1pm. They sell a range of locally sourced quality vegetables, meat and cakes.
