"We’re very proud of the range and quality of the stallholders at our markets and this new venues will be a wonderful opportunity for small traders to meet new customers. We’re happy to hear from producers who would like to work with us and also charities and community groups local to Grassington who would like a free space at our markets to promote their work.”
