Market Rasen #MonsterMarket in Photos

Once again a successful MR BIG Market thanks to so many people!

One of the winning Pumpkins from Paul (aged 40 + from Laceby!). Paul’s family were time visitors to the town, and his wife Julie told us: “We will definitely visit Market Rasen again- on a warmer, drier day!! It is a lovely place and I don’t know why we haven’t ever stopped by there before. Congratulations on what I suspect was a very successful day!”

A huge thank you to the support of our market traders, especially those like Kim Baker (Medical Herbalist) who dressed up for the event

Big thanks to our volunteer Face Painters Kathy and Vidge who did a brilliant job transforming the kids into witches, pumpkins and vampires!

Professional magician Rod Hammond delighted everyone with his card tricks and balloon animals

Our Amazing ‘Monster’ Librarian Mel (from Market Rasen library) entertained the kids with storytime in the Market Square. “It’s a GRUFFALO!”

Fabulous firework artwork from Maisie (age nine) who helped our Monster Librarians provide this free craft table in the Festival Hall

This wood fired pizza oven came to the market for the first time and proved a big hit
