The Morpeth Farmers’ Market will be celebrating all things British on Saturday May 7th.

Victory in Europe Day is on May 8th - the same weekend as the market. To celebrate the event the Salvation Army Brass Band will be playing from 10am till 12pm at the heart of the market place and the market will be trimmed with Union Flag bunting.

Local company the North East “Pig On A Spit” Hog Roast Company will be serving piping hot roast pork throughout the day.

Also on the Market Place for the Day will be Morpeth Town Football Club with players and officials on hand to meet fans and sell Wembley scarves, hats and replica shirts all in support of their trip to the Wembley final later in the year!

There will also be 21 stalls on the market place bringing the best of local produce to Morpeth. There will be fresh meat from Northumberland Poultry, fruit and veg from Julian and sausages from the ever popular Geordie Bangers all hoping to tempt taste buds on the day!

Morpeth Market is managed by Northumberland County Council and Sanderson Arcade, working in partnership with Morpeth Town Council, Morpeth and District Chamber of Trade and other local organisations through the Morpeth market working group.

The weekly Wednesday Market and The Farmers’ Market both run from 9am to 3pm at Morpeth Marketplace.
