Fang-tastic day at Tiverton market
It was a spook-tacular day at Tiverton Pannier Market on Saturday as lots of children, parents and traders got in the Halloween spirit, as well as Cooper the dog!
Around 60 youngsters took part in the Halloween Pumpkin Hunt organised by traders.
Children were tasked with finding around 20 pumpkins hidden all around the market, with each entrant winning a bag of sweets.
Jim Bray, market manager, said:
“It was lovely to see so many children and families here, all with smiling faces and several experiencing the market for the first time.
“Over £30 was raised towards a brochure to promote our fabulous range of traders as we head towards the Christmas period, which was a great result.
“We’ll be holding a similar event before Christmas, planned for Saturday 11 December, when children can hunt for Santa’s lost presents. Watch this space.”
Attention now switches to the launch of the all-new Tiverton Farmers Market this Saturday (6 November) (9am to 2pm), which will showcase local food, drink, producers and makers.
It promises to be an action-packed day, with over 40 stalls, food and drink businesses filling the main building, dedicated areas for makers, street food, live music and an opportunity to meet or walk a Shetland pony.
