Some of the products on sale on Clare market

Clare monthly market is back this weekend (16th) with tasty foods and live music to entertain while you shop.

The market made its return after a 20-year-absence last month following calls from local residents and businesses for it to be reinstated. Together with Clare Town Council, St Edmundsbury Borough Council is supporting the community in bringing about the market’s return.

This Saturday’s market will feature at least 16 stalls run by local businesses and community groups and offering everything from Spanish foods to traditional sweets, artisan bread, cheeses, coffees, organic fruit and vegetables, plus much more.

It takes place on Market Hill between 8.30am and 3.30pm, while there will also be live music between 11am and 1pm.

The market takes place on the third Saturday of each month. The next one will be on October 21. The market offers a free stall to any existing Clare businesses who want to try their hand at market trading. There is also a free stall for Clare-based community groups or charities to use for fundraising.

Anyone interested in trading on the market or who wants to enquire about the availability of either of these stalls, should contact Sharon Fairweather, market development officer on 01284 757093 or email sharon.fairweather@westsuffolk.gov.uk
