SINCE Caistor started hosting its monthly farmers’ markets earlier this year, the event has gone from strength to strength.

And this months market, on Saturday, October 13, promises to be bigger and better.

As well as the producers who have been regular visitors to the markets since they began back in April, the events have also welcomed a range of seasonal stalls.

One new stall to get on board recently is Cookie in a Jar - an innovative idea where ingredients for making cookies are provided ready to use to help you bake your own delicious cookies.

And last month saw a coup for Caistor.

Granny Mary’s Potted Beef made its debut in the Market Place - making Caistor the first farmers’ market to have this product on sale.

The product was previously only available from the Chatsworth Farm Shop.

Happy with their first visit, Granny Mary’s Potted Beef will be returning for the October market, along with new seller Propa Pies.

Regular stall holder John Turner’s bread continues to be a big favourite and is now looking to expand his stall as he has been selling out very quickly at each event.

But it is not just food that features at the town’s farmers’ markets.

Plants are also on sale - with Avril’s Plants a new addition last month.

Waterman’s of Nettleton will also be returning this month, who will be taking orders from Caistor residents for Christmas trees to help make the town sparkle for the festive season.

“The markets have proved to be very successful,” said Caistor town clerk Helen Pitman.

“We are pleased to welcome a range of stalls each month, which offers a wide choice of top quality local produce to our many visitors.

“This month’s market promises to be bigger and better.”
