Greenwich will once again play host to a farmers' market as of next month.
City & Country Farmers' Markets are returning to Greenwich in October with a new location right in the heart of the town centre.
The traders will set up their stalls in Durnford Street, between Greenwich Market and Greenwich Church Street.
The announcement was made on City & Country Farmers' Markets' Facebook page.
The organisers commented:
"We looked at various venues and found nothing suitable - but then Greenwich Market contacts us and offered us ... the location! We were initally a little uncertain as central Greenwich is a touristy area, however we have a great deal of support from locals as well as a prime location so are very confident it will work."
Previous attempts to launch the market at East Greenwich Pleasaunce and at Halstow School proved to be unsuccessful.
Lara Ruffle from East Greenwich regularly attended the market at Halstow School and welcomes the news:
"I am very pleased to see that CCFM are returning to Greenwich. We are lacking in a farmers' market and I was disappointed when the Halstow School site didn't work out. Hopefully this fabulous central location will mean the market is here to stay
The new farmers' market in Durnford Street begins on the weekend of October 15th and 16th.
