CHILDREN from Egerton Primary School are looking to hit the right note at Knutsford Market to celebrate the national Love your Local Market fortnight.

The school’s choir will be performing on Friday at 10am in front of the traders, shoppers and Knutsford Town Mayor and Mayoress Cllr Peter Coan and Ann Coan.

Saturday will be a ‘sample’ day, with promotional staff walking around the town centre with samples from all the traders, whether it is food and drink or a voucher or balloon.

Throughout the promotion there will be a competition inviting visitors to the market to ‘Guess the baby trader’ from a range of photographs.

The £1 entry fee will be given to the market’s chosen charity, Knutsford Royal May Day, and the winner will be presented with a bottle of fizz from Morgan Edwards.

On Saturday, May 25 there will be a face painter for children to enjoy.

Sandra Curties, town centre manager, said, “We love LYLM, and hope the additional promotion will encourage shoppers, existing and current to visit their local market.

“We really are a hidden gem, offering a range of produce and products.

“Not everyone realises you can pre-order and collect, and for a minimum order value many traders will deliver.

“We hope LYLM helps the community realise you can shop local and still have the convenience of online shopping. Pop in and give us a try.”

Knutsford Market Hall is open every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 8am to 4pm. The Market Café also opens on Wednesday.
