We are working to make the market more of a family occasion – for this Saturday’s market, the Town Band will play in the garden next to Joss Lane car park and the Information and Book Centre. The town’s shops and cafes will be open as usual as a perfect complement to the stalls.

Local businesses are represented by photography from Bill Lowis’s Sedbergh Landscapes, Farfield Mill with art and craft items and information about their venue, Fell and Dale selling cards and books reflecting local heritage, Lakeland Reflections with fused glass from Craftworkshop, Marie Eaton’s jewellery, Thai street food from Noolek, Ollie Collie with collie-themed souvenirs and gifts, cakes, preserves and crafts from Sedbergh and Killington Women’s Institutes and The Hobby House with weaving, spinning and much more and The Twig Pen People with their twig pens, both from Farfield Mill. The team from B4RN will be on the market to explain their progress bringing superfast broadband to the more local rural areas and telling people how they can get involved.

Other craft stalls are A Bit of a Buzz with beeswax candles and polish, Autumn Illustration with hand-drawn gifts and prints, hand-crafted bags and crochet scarves from Bags of Fun and glamorous jewellery from Scalia Creations.

Other cold food and drink comes from All Greek to Me’s olives, dips and famous baklava, Choco-Lori of Grange’s hand-made chocolates, Chocs Away of Kendal’s chocolates and sweets, Christina’s Home-made Fudge, Jeannie’s Kitchen Garden’s handmade preserves, cooking sauces from Saucy Mare, Singh’s Vegetarian Samosas, Sue’s Bread with vegan bread, morsels and bready meals, The Cumbrian Pie Company’s savoury pork and vegetarian pies and Thornby Moor Dairy’s raw milk cow and goat artisan cheeses.

Last but by no means least are information stalls from Cumbria Wildlife Trust and the RSPB.

Please think about visitors less mobile than yourselves and park if you can in Loftus Hill car park and along Back Lane and Long Lane.
