Have your say

An artisan market is to return to Chesterfield later this month following a successful event in May.

The market, run by Chesterfield Borough Council in association with The Market Co, is to be held in New Square on Sunday.

There area expected to be more artisan producers this month, with local meats, cider, cheese, raw milk, award winning pies, cheesecakes, cakes and cookies on offer.

There will also be a wide range of non-food items on sale, including soaps, art, photography, handcrafted fabric bags, leather satchels and cards.

Councillor Amanda Serjeant, Chesterfield Borough Council’s cabinet member for town centre and visitor economy, said: “We had lots of really positive feedback from traders, visitors and local business owners after the first artisan market in May.

“People really enjoyed the quality and value of the artisan food and gifts on offer and I am sure this one, with the extended opening time, will be bigger and better than before.”

Denise Valente, director of The Market Co, said: “The welcome we received from Chesterfield visitors was overwhelming. Everyone was thrilled with the diverse range of goods on offer.”
