Stay Of Execution for former W I Market

Hereford Country Market, formerly known as the W I Market, has ben spared the axe for a trial period of four more months. Having found replacements for three key management positions, it is hoped that a new enthusiasm will keep it open. The market is always in need of producers of homegrown FRUIT, VEGETABLES, PLANTS, JAM, CRAFT and at the moment, competent COOKS to maintain its high reputation for top quality home made cakes, quiches, scones & sausage rolls. In future there will be emphasis on good healthy cooking which is in great demand. Like many other traders, the market has been hit badly by recent inaccessibility through High Town and by the increase in the number of supermarkets. Unless the customers come to buy the produce, it can no longer remain viable, so the motto USE IT OR LOSE IT certainly applies.

The Hereford Country Market is held every Friday morning, opening at 7.30am in St Peter’s Church Hall, opposite the Shirehall.
