Tameside embraces Love your Local Market Fortnight
Monday 23rd May 2016 @ 14:56 by Adam Higgins

Love your Local Market Fortnight is underway, with Tameside playing an active part.

The national event aims to promote the importance of local markets and celebrate entrepreneurship.

To recognise the fact, Tameside Council is offering free pitches to first-time traders at Ashton, Hyde and Stalybridge farmers’ markets.

Last week, Tameside College students hosted cookery demonstrations in Ashton.

Many more activities are planned with the event running until the end of the month.

But getting the fortnight off to a great start was the news that Tameside Council markets manager Nicola Martin has been named National Market Traders Federation Market Manager of the Year.
