Lampeter People's Market
One of the major aspirations of any Transition Town is the development of local food production as well as our skills and craft base.
A thriving local food and craft economy enhances our resilience to global fluctuations brought about by rising fuel costs and the potential disruption from climate changes.
Transition Llambed, via its Development Trust, is establishing the indoor People’s Market in the Victoria Hall. This will take place on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month between 10 and 12. The first one will be on the 11th of February.
All stall holders will provide goods from within a 15 mile radius of Lampeter (exceptions can apply in certain circumstances). You will get to know the stall holders, where they live and how they produce their food and crafts. It is hoped that you will appreciate the quality and value they can offer.
We hope you will understand the importance of supporting the market to enable it to grow, become a success and give confidence to others to start producing food and crafts locally for us all. By spending time and money in Lampeter at the market and any of the other local businesses we can build on our own community wealth and reinvest that wealth locally.
We intend to make the market a social, informative and entertaining experience. On the first day Denmark Farm will be promoting their ‘Wildlife Where You Live’ programme where you can also find out what other courses they are running, children and adults will have the chance to make their own bird-boxes, Georgia Owen, a local musician, will be playing live and simple refreshments will be available.
Lampeter was once a thriving market town serving all the surrounding villages with most needs. We believe this is a big step towards making it so again.
It is called the People’s Market for good reason. Let us all encourage the people of Lampeter to adopt the Market and make it their own.
