Market Rasen’s award winning BIG market – 1st February

The BIG market for February is on Saturday February 1, 2014 from 9am to 2pm in the historic Georgian Market Place, Market Rasen with more to celebrate than usual, having just picked up its 2nd national market award from NABMA as Britain’s Best Social Enterprise Market 2014!

As usual, the BIG market, held on the first Saturday of the month, will be packed with local food producers.  Mr Plewes from Beasthorpe Farm will be there with his delicious double yolker eggs!

Market Rasen will also be hosting regular farmer’s market favourites Jenny’s Jams; cakes from the Little Cake Company; artisan foods from Albion, Taste of Sardinia, and The West Wold Delicatessen, the own brand range of Greens of Lincolnshire which this week has been chosen as a finalist in the annual Love Food Select Lincolnshire awards in the category of best food retailer/ wholesaler.  Smoked and flavoured cheeses will be available to try before you buy from Lynne Bank Farm Cheese, with artisan bread from Greenfield Bakers.  Visitors and Market Rasen residents can also look forward to honey products from Croft Selections, sweets from Memorable Treats and and hearty pies perfect to take home as tea time treats in this wintery weather courtesy of Propa Pies.

There is such a wide variety of stalls, it’s hard to fit them all in:  gifts and food from English Rose, Toys and DVDs from the pool fundraising team, with Scouts offering refreshments and Market Rasen Church of England Primary school offering biscuits and sweets.  Tuck into Hepy’s Hog Roast, award winning meat from Redhill Farm plus fruit pies, cakes and scones from Wilcox Bakery. As always you can pick up your weekly fruit and veg from the Norths, plants from Roger  plus underwear and much more – gifts and garden accessories from Helen of J Waterman Timber Services, and natural skin care and beauty products from White Holly.  Anne Lowish is selling Forever Aloe Vera products, and there are stunning home accessories from Emma and Deborah of Sister Chic.

Bird cages and feeders are being offered by Mr Bratley, Moroccan Handcrafts by Mr Jepson, and Lincolnshire hampers and gifts from Eaton Hampers. Designs by Lesley will be selling jewellery and silver too.

The secret of our success is YOU.  The market and Market Rasen high street needs customers to support it, and the more customers, the easier it is to persuade exciting new sellers to set up a stall and start selling locally, and the more we can support social enterprise.

Speaking of their 2nd national markets award Sara Scott, chair of MR BIG, said: “This makes us particularly proud as it recognises that the market is organised by committed volunteers.

“We’re one of just nine markets winning national awards – so really this confirms our place as an innovator and leader in markets provision.”

Come along and see for yourself every 1st Saturday of the month.

MARKET RASEN’S BIG FOOD MARKET SUCCESS

The first Saturday of October we held our annual Big Food Market and we would like very much to thank everybody who ran the stalls and all of those who came to support the market. The turnout was fantastic, Dominic Franks was on fine form with his cooking demonstrations, the sun was out, the variety of different stalls on show was exciting and the food was delicious.

In addition, we took this ideal opportunity to launch the BIG FOOD Recipe Book. This little cookbook features recipes from some of Lincolnshire’s finest artisan food producers – who also happen to be regular stallholders at Market Rasen’s award winning markets.

We’re looking forward to seeing everyone back at our next BIG monthly market on Saturday 2nd November.

See you there.
