A totally local market day!

THE second Totally Locally street market in Brighouse on Saturday will build on the success of the first event with an increased number of stalls.

The market will run on Park Street and Commercial Street to cope with the demand for space.

New stalls for this second market will include Totally Locally award winners Czerwik’s, stockists of local beers as well as rhubarb, hibiscus, elderflower and elderberry wines from Huddersfield.

Lottie Shaw will be selling her range of ‘Seriously Good’ Yorkshire parkin and other tasty treats and the Mediterranean Deli, of Wainstalls, will be on hand with herb and spice mixes and handmade chocolate bars.

Visitors will be able to enjoy a range of Yorkshire beers, wines and ciders and street entertainment will come from Vegas Elvis at 11am and ipm and the Studio One School of Dance from Brighouse at noon.

Lesley Adams, one of the event organisers, said: “We are now fully booked for the second market with 39 stalls confirmed. Given the range of produce on offer there really is something for everyone and it should be an absolutely fantastic day.

““Everyone has really pulled together to arrange an event that will be bigger and better than the first, with entertainment and refreshments available on the day.

“Even organisations such as the Brighouse Rest Centre on Park Row have got involved and is holding a special Open Day from 10am to 4pm with all ages welcome and light refreshments being served.”

Other Totally Locally market favourites will include Asian food from the Street Restaurant in Brighouse, Pextenement cheeses from Todmorden, the eggs from Villa Farm Shop from Bradley and Austin Duffy from Bingley with his tea and coffee blends.

Totally Locally is an innovative ‘shop local’ campaign and, since its launch in October 2009, it has helped to change shopping habits with more residents able to tap into great products and the knowledge and personal customer service from independent businesses across the borough.

Charities also stand to benefit from the market with all money raised at the event going to support Overgate Hospice and Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice. The market runs from 9am to 3pm.
