Find great value, local, fresh food and drink in the heart of Swindon town centre from Thursday 3 October, after inSwindon BID Company revealed plans for their new weekly Havelock Square Farmers’ Market.
From 9am and 3pm on Thursday each week, shoppers will discover tasty local food – fresh vegetables, meat, cheese, cake and seasonal fruit. You’ll also be able to find watercress, venison, bread, fish, pies and plants – everything you need for a delicious meal or the perfect present.
The new market will be held in Havelock Square under the Brunel Statue and will feature a wide selection of Swindon producers and a range of exciting guest ones too, brought to the town by Fresh ‘n’ Local.
Rebecca Rowland, BID Manager for inSwindon BID Company, said: “We are delighted to announce the start of our weekly Havelock Square Market once again to the people of Swindon.
“This is a great opportunity to invite those who may not shop in the town to buy truly fresh, and local produce right in the heart of the town centre.
“You’ll also have the chance to speak to the friendly stallholders who will readily offer tasting suggestions, recipes and serving advice to help you create exciting and fresh dishes made from the fields and farms of the county.”
Fresh ‘n’ Local will guarantee the very best value, without paying a premium for food miles and supporting a commitment to look after the local environment.
