David is delighted with this development. He said: ‘Enabling local people to sell their produce locally and easily has got to be a good thing. But what’s key is running this market every week so that it can become part of local people’s routine. And with the Methodist Chapel also setting up a coffee shop it can also become an opportunity for people to meet friends and will encourage them to do more shopping locally.’
