Truro Farmers’ Market is hosting extra markets on Lemon Quay in the run up to Christmas, amid unprecedented demand from the public and market traders.

Over the course of the year the market has seen a marked rise in footfall as shoppers embrace the outdoor shopping experience; the set-up was redesigned into a Covid-safe one-way system, with strict hygiene and social distancing procedures in place.

Market co-ordinator, Stewart Girvan, said: “The events of this past year have reminded us all of the true value of small, independent businesses – those that struggled to survive but continued to serve their local communities during the pandemic. Customers are now more determined than ever to show their support as we approach the festive season.

“We are thrilled to be able to respond to the demand, and have secured lots of additional days on Lemon Quay to enable people to shop with local farmers, small food producers and craftspeople in the run-up to Christmas.”

As well as extra daytime markets, there will be three late-night shopping events with the market stalls staying open until 9pm.

As well as locally-sourced food and drink, the market also has an array of locally-made crafts on sale.
