Transition Town Honiton (TTH) are starting a monthly community market from January 2013. Taking place every first Saturday of the month in the mornings at the Mackarness Hall, this is a place people can meet, buy and barter ethical goods, fresh fruit and veg, local food, crafts and more.
With food prices rising and cuts affecting everyone, Sustainable Saturdays will offer a slightly alternative way of doing things. We’ll be experimenting with the old-fashioned bartering system so you could bring a bag of your home grown potatoes and go home with some delicious local meat or cheese! There will also be a clothes swapping stall where you can bring good quality clothes you no longer need and swap for items you like. Plus anyone can book a stall if they are having a clear out as this encourages re-use/recycling and puts a few extra pennies in the stallholders pocket. You don’t have to barter, you can still buy things with real money too – it’s just an idea we want to explore!
TTH is planning ahead and volunteers are needed to help run the market and make it a success. Stallholders needed too including local charities to run the cake stall every month. Please get in touch with Sharon on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07447 597390.
