Village Market

Hilderstone Village Hall

HVH Fresh Produce Market

Following a discussion with our remaining four stall holders this morning, we have decided that next week’s market on Thursday 7 October will be the final weekly market.  As life has returned to something approaching normal and most people are back at work, we’ve seen the number of customers coming to the market steadily decline.  We’re now at the point where the weekly market is just not viable.  We’re all sorry that it’s come to this but it was inevitable.  Still, it was fun while it lasted.

I’d personally like to thank all our stallholders past and present but especially Barbara, Michelle, Dave, and Rosie, who have stuck with us to the end.  Those that remain are all able to deliver to Hilderstone – see their details below.

We also have some very loyal weekly customers who I’d also like to thank.

Janet Hubbart – top shopper who’s only missed one market.

Sue and Richard Pilcher

Sue Gamble

Hazel Woodward

Dawn Bourne

Bill Blood

Pat Cowan

Yvonne Leeson

Emma Westwood (from The Roe Buck)

All the staff at Hilderstone Garage – who enjoy their weekly bacon and cheese oatcakes.

Don’t be offended if you’re not on the list above.  We’re really grateful for all your support.

Saturday markets are still going, so put the last Saturday of every month in your diaries (except August and December) because in true pandemic government style the last Saturday of the month is Market – Afternoon Tea – Pop-Up Pub!

We hope to see you at our future events. Thanks again for all your support.
