With more than 150 stalls, the next Humber Bridge Farmers’ Market is set to take place at the bridge’s viewing area, in Hessle, on Sunday 6th December, from 9am to 1pm.

In addition to the regular event, which is held on the first Sunday of every month, there will be a pre-Christmas market on Wednesday 23rd December, giving visitors a chance to pick up last-minute gifts and food ahead of the big day.

The market is the largest of its kind in the region, with over 5,000 visitors each month. Visitors can expect stalls selling a selection of the best seasonal, regional produce, in addition to a dedicated section for arts and crafts.

Neil Marshall, Head of Resources at the Humber Bridge, said:

With Christmas fast approaching, it’s the perfect time to start planning your festive menu. At this month’s farmers’ market, there will be a range of locally sourced meats, fish and vegetables. You will also have the chance to buy some tasty treats such as handmade chocolates, cheeses, liquors and chutneys, all of which are perfect for a Christmas party.

As there will be a second farmers’ market this month, you can pre-order what you need and collect your festive treats just in time for Christmas.

There is also a dedicated arts and crafts section, which will give you the chance to buy some excellent stocking fillers, such as woollen hats, gloves, jumpers and scarves, as well as homemade soaps, candles and bags. You will also have the opportunity to buy a Christmas tree, decorations and wreaths to give any home a festive feel.”

The Humber Bridge Farmers’ Market, which holds accreditation from the National Farmers’ Retail & Markets Association (FARMA), is held on the first Sunday of every month, from 9am to 1pm, and ample free parking is available on site.
