HEADINGLEY FARMERS’ MARKET SATURDAY 12th August 2017 (2nd Saturday of the month)

July was a delightful market with the sun shining and music from the Matineers creating an upbeat summer atmosphere. Despite Kirkstall Festival taking place at the same time we still had plenty of shoppers and takers for the kids’ game. August will be holiday time but if you are around come along to the market as we have 18 stalls attending.


 

MARKET RESEARCH

Results from the survey that we carried out in May revealed over a 1000 shoppers visited the market.

42% of visitors were under 40

58% of visitors were over 40

Shoppers came from the following areas:

LS6 52%

LS16 20%

Other LS postcodes 25%

A very good result and we hope you will all continue to “Think Global and Shop Local!!”

We do not sell hot food and drinks at the Market as there are lots of cafes in Headingley. Why not have a coffee or lunch at HEART Café on nearby Bennett Rd. Like the Farmers’ Market it is an HDT project so please support it.

We look forward to seeing you, your friends and family 9-12.30 on Saturday 12th August 2017 at the Rose Garden, Headingley LS6 3JJ.
