A FARMERS’ market aiming to make Kingsley a more self sufficient village was a resounding success.
The local produce fayre, which was held at Horseshoe Pub, Chester Road, Kingsley,was officially opened by Weaver Vale MP Mike Hall.
Allan Arthurs, a member of the farmers’ market steering group, said: “It went really well and was very well received by the community, the stall holders, the pub itself. Everybody who participated was delighted.
“This was the first farmers’ market we have held. We circulated questionnaires to get feedback about how they felt but I think we will probably have another.
“There was a lot of variety, ranging from home made jams, flowers, vegetables, bread, beer and ‘happy beef’ from a lady who keeps her own cattle. There was a lot of produce.
“We organised the event as part of Transition Culture, which is about building self-sufficient communities in the face of climate change and reducing our carbon footprint, using the car less, walking a bit more, and having a lot of fun doing it.”
