2 years ago this May, Market Rasen launched its journey to become a Portas Pilot with an Extraordinary Portas Pop Up market.
This Saturday 3rd May sees the first of 2 BIG Markets kicking off this month’s Love Your Local Market celebrations with almost 40 stall holders in the historic Georgian Market place from 9am.
Visitors to Market Rasen can look forward to artisan food, cakes, cheeses, locally grown cut flowers and plants, plus an array of unusual and distinctive gifts from the very best local market traders, including stalwarts like Jill Brown from English Rose who has attended every BIG market and has new fabrics and rhubarb and custard cake and amongst her wares this Saturday.
Market Day visitors can find free parking everywhere, plus special offers and deals along the High St wherever they see the MY MARKEN RASEN sticker. And for those having a spin down the A46 from Grimsby en route to market Mill Farm Nursery on Gallamore Lane, for a wide range of British grown plant, has just opened for its 3rd season offering an exclusive BIG Market day special of 10% over £10 for anyone who quotes MY MARKET RASEN.
“With 2 national Markets awards under their belt, and summer visitors on their way, the Mr Big team have really put the Market back into Market Rasen” said Rob Parry, owner of Mill Farm Nursery, long standing stall holder and member of Mr Big. “It’s great that we are all working together to provide a warm welcome and great service to visitors.”
There will be also be a BIG market in Market Rasen on 20th May from 9am to celebrate Love Your Local Market fortnight with special guests in attendance.
