A village market is held in the village hall once a
month selling a good selection of local produce and handicrafts.
The market is held on the second Saturday of the
month, apart from in August -
when it is replaced by the Village Horticultural Society Summer Show.
The market is open from 10 – 12 noon, and from 9am
Local produce for sale includes meat, eggs, vegetables and
fruit, homemade preserves and local honey, homemade cakes, bread and sweets. A
wide selection of seasonal plants and flowers are usually available, as well as
handmade greetings cards, jewellery, hand
woven scarves and a variety of other present ideas.
The market was set up in 2007 on a not for profit
basis. It has a strong community ethos, and can accommodate up to 30 stalls.
Refreshments are provided each month in aid of Cancer Research UK, and Yatton
Parish Council hold a monthly surgery at the market from 11am to 12 noon to
enable residents and visitors to discuss issues with local councillors. The
market also regularly hosts visits by community groups and charities. In the past
this has included representatives from The Strawberry Line Cafe Project,
Guide Groups, Transition Yatton, N. Somerset Play Rangers, Yatton Music
Society, the Rotary Club
and many others.
Enquiries are always welcome from new
stallholders. For more information or to book a stall contact Sue Simmons on 01934
