The competition will be judged by Market Manager Neil Brown and Nic Best a member of Morpeth Markets Partnership

Nic Best a member of the Morpeth Markets Partnership: “We hope the whole town will come and visit the final Farmers’ Market of the year this Saturday and show support for our local traders and small businesses which always bring such great products to the area.”

"Markets are a great way to develop a small business and we’re fortunate to have some fantastic producers here.  The Morpeth Markets Partnership are always looking for traders who are passionate about their products and where they are produced to join the ever growing market.

There will also be live festive entertainment from the Jazz Men, 11am – 1pm.
