Market returns just in time for Mother’s Day

Historic Clare will be welcoming visitors once again to its monthly market when it returns later this month following a winter break.

Mother’s Day will be very much the focus when the market returns on March 21.

Children will be able to make Mother’s Day cards using sand art. Cards cost £2.50 each but if you buy items from the market you can get a voucher to make one for free.

The market will also have around 15 stalls selling home and garden ware, jewellery, flowers, chocolate, as well as jams, chutneys, honey, cakes, pies, fresh bread and fruit and vegetables.

Councillor Peter Stevens, Cabinet Member for Operations at West Suffolk Council, said: “We are delighted to welcome visitors back to Clare monthly market following its winter break. We hope that the market will continue to go from strength to strength in 2020 as locals and visitors alike enjoy shopping in the beautiful, historic surroundings of Clare. With Mother’s Day fast approaching, there’s also a chance for children to help make that perfect card for mums to treasure. The market also offers a chance for local businesses, charities or community groups to run a stall for free which is a great way for them to showcase their work or their products.”

The town crier will also be attending the first market and there will be music and other activities throughout the year.

Clare market takes place on the third Saturday of each month between March and November. It is open from 8.30am to 1.30pm on Market Hill.

There is a great selection of independent shops, pubs and cafes around the town.
