Sue Featherstone of Saltburn Allotment Association said: “We’re starting to feel a tinge of autumn in the air, so we’ll be making some hearty autumn allotment soup from vegetables grown right here in town. It’s perfect for warming up these crispier autumn days."
“We’ll also be bringing plenty of pumpkins – great with Halloween just around the corner – plus a really tasty harvest of tomatoes, chillies, curly kale, chard, onions, apples, pears, and some gorgeous autumn fruit preserves and jams made by allotment holders."
“All the profits from our stall go straight back into our work at the allotments,” said Sue. “That includes helping to maintain our communal gardening equipment, and developing a ‘Grow and Learn’ horticulture training project, part of which sees us growing vegetables right in the town centre’s Secret Square – literally just yards from the market itself."
“Everything on our stall is picked fresh from the allotments on the morning and brought straight to the Market – it doesn’t really get any fresher or any more local than that!”
The market features more than 35 stalls including locally produced sausages, meat and game; freshly baked artisan bread and handmade cheese. It takes place on Saturday October 11th 9am-3pm and is based just outside Saltburn Railway Station.
