Wetherby saw the launch of Little Birds first Artisan Market last month, set in the beautiful surroundings of the Town Hall. The Artisan Market in partnership with Wetherby Town Council, replaced the traditional farmers market and brought 40 traders, selling a wide variety of hand made and artisan produced goods. The event attracted a host of visitors from the local community, who came out to visit the new market and enjoy the beautiful weather.
The Market was officially opened by Councillor Neil O'Byrne, Mayor of Wetherby, who said "It was an absolute pleasure for me to open the new and exciting Wetherby Artisan Market and welcome so many new stallholders. I doubt many more stalls could have fitted into the Market Place, which was packed with customers, many of whom thanked Wetherby Town Council for organising this vibrant monthly market. I am certain that this venture with our friends at Little Bird Made will be another resounding success and attract many more visitors to our beautiful town".
Little Bird owner Jackie Crozier is excited for this Sunday, seeing the Market return to the Town Centre. With new and current traders attending, selling handmade produce and products. Everything from art, candles, skin care, home ware, clothing to food, drink, cheese, flowers, and craft products will be on offer. Alongside the amazing street food vendors, selling freshly cooked delights and live musicians performing throughout the event. So bring the family or a friend and come along and browse the stalls, grab a coffee, or sample the delicious food on offer and sit back and enjoy the music and the visit the other amenities in the Town.
The Yorkshire Vet Julian Norton will also be attending to sign copies of his latest book All Creatures. Julian who has a practice Sandbeck Vets, Wetherby, has spent his days as a mixed practice vet treating animals across the Yorkshire Dales. In All Creatures, Julian tells the stories of each of the eight species he has the good fortune to care for every day. He shares the heart-warming and life-affirming characteristics of animal happiness and once again reminds us of the power these creatures have. Another great reason to come along on Sunday and have a chance to meet Julian and to buy his book as a special present for someone or just to treat yourself.
The Market will take place in Wetherby Town Centre, around the Town Hall on Sunday 11th of July, and will be open for trade between 10am – 3pm. It will take place on a regular basis on the second Sunday of the Month, throughout the year (except November, when it will be the 3rd Sunday).
We encourage everyone to attend safely, to protect both traders and members of the public. Please observe social distancing, wear a face covering (unless exempt) and practice regular hand sanitising.
