Full Steam Ahead for Hailsham Summer Market

Council News & Services, Shopping & Retail

 

The countdown is on to Hailsham’s Summer Market which takes place in the town centre on Saturday 20th July from 9am until 3pm.

Further preparations for the event have been made by the Town Council’s Communities Committee, and organisers are confident that it will be a great family event offering something for everyone.

Vicarage Field will be home to a range of street market stalls selling locally sourced food, as well as gifts and accessories and one of the highlights of the event will be a specialist French Market, courtesy of traders France At Home.

The French traders mostly come from different ‘departments’ in Normandy and cross the Channel every week to offer a wide range of high-quality products in different parts of the UK. Products on sale include local and regional cheeses, freshly baked bread, patisserie products, olives and dried fruits, as well as jewellery, accessories and more.

Live music will be performed throughout the day and Hailsham FM will be broadcasting live.

Councillor Nigel Coltman, Vice-Chairman of the Town Council’s Communities Committee said: “We’ve been working hard on the Summer Market and the arrival of France At Home on the day demonstrates how our town centre is very much open for business by giving people the opportunity to sample and buy some locally sourced products. It will also bring variety and vibrancy to the town centre!”

Deputy Town Clerk & Business Enterprise Manager Mickey Caira commented: “The range of stalls and products offered at the forthcoming Summer Market is diverse and I hope that as many people as possible will come along and take advantage of what’s on offer.”
