Love your local market this Valentine’s Day

Tue, 01/27/2015

On Saturday 14 February, shoppers, residents and visitors will have the chance to show their love for one of Ely’s most favourite markets.

This year it’s Ely Farmers’ Market’s 15th birthday – to be celebrated on Saturday 27 June. To mark the occasion, people are being asked to give their memories of the market on special blackboards to use in the summer celebrations.

The memories can be about the early days of the Farmers’ Market or can delve further back into the past to highlight what markets in Ely used to be like in the previous decades.

The District Council is the 11th authority in the country to implement CIL as they replace, in a majority of cases, the previous complex ‘Section 106’ negotiations and agreements
