Horsley Farmers Market - Update

The organising team have decided they will not be running a monthly farmers market in 2023, in the absence of sufficient new volunteers coming forward to help with planning and organisation. 

However, several of the organisers are looking at options for offering an occasional market, such as at Christmas. They have well established processes and will leave the Community Interest Company active for the time being in case they are able to continue the market in some form.

It is a great pity that it has come to this, but the current approach does not attract enough visitors to give many of our stallholders a satisfactory return; the market needs new volunteers with new ideas to help it evolve or change. 

We would like to thank Nick Clemens, East Horsley Parish Clerk and each of you who have actively supported the market over the last three years. I would also like to thank the organising team for their selfless contributions to the market since 2020 - namely David Abbott, Katie Matthews, Niki McLean and Terri Wood.
