COXWOLD Village Market, a new food and craft market, is set to launch in the village on Saturday, March 30, at 10am.

The market has been founded by local woman Katie Turner, who works with her partner John Thornton from Thornton’s Bakehouse and Butchers of Easingwold. It will be opened by chef Tommy Banks of The Black Swan at Oldstead, Roots York and BBC’s Great British Menu.

She said: “I’m passionate about the local community, supporting independent business and the provenance of produce. It’s this passion which has driven me to create Coxwold Village Market and to try and give back to the local community, offering shoppers something more than their closest supermarket. I really hope this market will become a focus of village life here in Coxwold.”

The market will offer a wide range of artisanal, locally-made goods; stallholders range from florists and bee keepers to plant growers and butchers.

Alongside the stalls there will also be a raffle with prizes from local business owners and stallholders to raise funds for local cause, Freddie’s Fight, supporting the young boy from Ampleforth suffering with an aggressive form of childhood cancer.
