A local producer's market will be held in Northampton Market Square on Saturday

Following the success of a similar event in July, the borough council has invited a number of county businesses to display their goods including The Good Loaf, Phipps Brewers, Frog Island Brewery, Fleur Fields Vineyards, All Fixed Up, Browns Gourmet Sausages and DonnaLulu Cooks.

Councillor Jonathan Nunn, deputy leader of Northampton Borough Council, said: “The successful launch of the local producer’s market came as a result of feedback from businesses and members of the public, saying that they would like to see more local products at the market.

“We were pleased to see how well the first of these markets was received in July and look forward to seeing the producers’ market grow over the coming months.”
