As 2019 is now fully underway, we at The Market Managers are excited to see what it has in store! 2018 was amazing, seeing two new additions being added to the events that we manage – the Humber Bridge Farmers’ Market and Craft Fair, and the Cottingham Food and Drink Festival.
The Humber Bridge Market, which happens monthly, is hugely exciting to be involved with, and is quite an intense event due to there only being 4 trading hours, between 9am and 1pm. A lot of visitors seem happy to get up on a Sunday morning and attend though!
An amazing annual event, the Cottingham Food and Drink Festival, has a different feel, but is equally busy. This event was in its 6th year, and runs every September, drawing in about 25,000 to the village on one Sunday. We really enjoyed this exciting and exhausting day! Brian Turner came along for his third year as one of the chefs demonstrating their skills, and even the occasional cloudbursts didn’t dampen spirits!
We were also thrilled to be part of the team awarded the Minster FM Listeners’ Choice Award for events in Malton, such as the Malton Monthly Food Market, which we operate on behalf of the Visit Malton CIC.
2018 was such an amazing year, and we look forward to seeing what 2019 will bring, when The Market Managers celebrates its 5th birthday! Watch this space!
