Monthly Markets Return to Honley
We are looking forward to the return of our popular village markets this month.
The first 2022 Honley Park Market will be held at Honley People’s Park, Westgate, on Saturday, 14 May, from 10am until 3pm.
The monthly markets were first held last year. This year’s events promise to be bigger and better, with stalls to complement local shops, cafes and restaurants.
Gifts and Tasty Treats
Stalls supporting this year’s first monthly market include, handmade children’s clothes and accessories, woollen merchandise, including blankets, throws and rugs, perfumes and creams, soy wax candles and melts, as well as handcrafted and recycled wooden gifts.
For anyone wanting to enjoy a tipple at home, there will be Artisan wines, liqueurs and cider to accompany a variety of tasty treats on offer, including cheese, biscuits and cakes that can be washed down in the comfort of your own home.
There will even be treats to purchase for our four-legged friends.
We’re Stronger Together
Organisers, June McLean, secretary for Honley Business Association (HBA), and Beryl Lewis, of The Calico Ark, said they hope to help draw more people into the village with a varied selection of fresh produce and handmade goods.
June said: “We are doing everything we can to ensure we get a lovely variety of stalls to complement the shops we already have in our wonderful village.
“As well as locally sourced goods and gifts, there will also be food and drink for people to take home with them.
“Our aim is to encourage more people into our lovely village, to browse the market and to visit the fabulous variety of local shops, cafes and restaurants Honley has to offer.”
Visitors are encouraged to park on the outskirts of the village and to enjoy a stroll around the local area. As well as spending the day browsing the market stalls and village shops, people are invited to enjoy the many local walks around the village, including Magdale, which is currently home to ducklings and goslings.
June said: “Families can take bird seed for the nesting birds in Magdale and there is plenty of frogspawn to spot in the recently created pond.”
