FARMERS are hoping for better weather after a new date was scheduled for a market.

The snow forced Emsworth’s first Hampshire Farmers’ Market to be cancelled last month but it will be back on February 16 at Palmers Road car park.

The producers will be setting up stalls offering local produce from 10am until 2pm and there will also be a taster unit serving samples to try before buying.

Visitors will have the opportunity to enter a competition to win a Hampshire Farmers’ Market hamper packed with local produce.

Alex Handford, from the farmers market, said: ‘Retailers in all of our market locations across Hampshire benefit from the additional shoppers that the markets help to attract and the coffee shops, pubs and restaurants also enjoy increased custom.

‘We are confident that Emsworth will benefit in the same way.’
