Orton Farmers market comes to Rheged!
An award winning Farmers Market and the largest indoor visitor attraction in Cumbria have now joined forces to provide a monthly farmers market in Penrith.
Orton Farmers Market will now take position at the Rheged Centre, Penrith every last Sunday of the month for an event which aims to showcase the best of Cumbrian food, produce and crafts.
Orton Farmers' Market has over 35 local farmers, growers, producers & artisan craftsmen who offer a tremendous variety of high quality and specialty local produce and crafts which Rheged are excited to have at the centre. Marketing Manager Holly Venning explained:
“One of the ethos’s that run through our business is our love for high quality local-sourced food. Westmorland Ltd was grown out of a farm – so we really can’t think of a more perfect match than having a travelling farmers market whom excel in showcasing local producers and talent.”
The Sunday market will still follow the tradition of being in the great outdoors, located around the external areas of Rheged, but with the opportunity to take cover indoors if the great Cumbrian weather descends.
Leanne Duerden, the coordinator of Orton Farmers’ Market said, “It will be great to greet Rheged’s visitors with seasonal produce in an outdoor setting that has all the atmosphere of a bustling market. Local shoppers will also find many of the familiar faces from local Farmers’ Markets at Brough, Penrith and Crosby Ravensworth too with business such as Deer ‘n’ Dexter at Penruddock, Winter Tarn Cheeses near Shap and High Cup Wines near Appleby all taking part through the summer.”
Orton Farmers Market@Rheged will take place every Sunday 10am-4.30pm at Rheged, except in December when it will take place on 15th. There is ample free parking and free entry.
