Market lays on a diamond day

THE next Morpeth Farmers’ Market promises to be a gem of an event.

The market will take place on Saturday and stallholders will be entering the spirit of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

There will be special cakes from Viv of Grandma’s Own Recipes, as well as a face-painter and all sorts of bank holiday fun.

The market will also feature the usual range of fresh produce, with specials this month including locally grown asparagus from Julian’s Veg, new season wild trout and salmon from Ridley’s Fish and Game and bespoke woodwork from Church View Joinery.

The event will be held in Morpeth Market Place, from 9am to 2.30pm.
