A community market which have become a thriving part of the village is opening its doors to customers next month.

Abbots Langley Autumn Community Market will be welcoming stallholders and shoppers to the Henderson Hall on Saturday, September 12.

Abbots Langley Transition Town Association (ALTTA) is hosting its autumn community market to raise awareness and promote the availability of locally grown/reared and produced food.

It is in its fourth year and has grown in strength with more than 300 people coming through the doors at the last market.

A spokesman for ALTTA said: “The market has become a thriving part of the village. Research has shown that people want to support and buy from local food producers and so this market plays an important role because shoppers can get a sense of what local food and food produce there is available.

“It has also brought people together with a cafe-seating area run by volunteers to have a cup of tea or coffee and chat.”

Amongst the locally grown fruit and vegetables, eggs, honey and flour, there will be Hertfordshire-made cheeses, a selection of locally roasted coffee, jams and

preserves, cakes and bakes.

ALTTA also continues to find new local food producers and at the last market

Sunnyside Rural Trust joined it and in September, it hopes to have a local artisan

bread maker.

The market will be opening its doors at a new time of 10am in the Henderson Hall on High Street until 1pm. Free admission and free local parking.
