CHANGES to make Morpeth’s Wednesday market more environmentally-friendly have been recognised at a national level.

The stalls were recently named most improved market in the National Market Traders Federation’s How Green Is Your Market? Awards.

Traders provide customers with biodegradable carrier bags or branded hessian bags for life, which they can re-use, and also recycle packaging materials. One trader re-uses empty milk containers, filling them with water and freezing them so that when covered with cloth they act as a chiller.
