Update from Real Food Ilkley (4 July)
CANCELLED (AGAIN). We are sorry to say that Sunday 5 July's market is cancelled due to extreme weather conditions. It would be irresponsible of us to progress with holding the market on The Grove - the safety of the public, volunteers and traders is paramount.
This is heartbreaking for everyone involved in the market as we have all worked so hard to be compliant with C-19 regulations and the last few months have been very tough for us all. Most of our stallholders will still be able to get their produce to you - please continue to support them in these very difficult times. Visit realfoodilkley.co.uk/buydirect/ for info and contact details. Or you could still visit some of them at their premises, for instance Marsh Top Farm Shop is open tomorrow in Oxenhope.
Organisers of the monthly Real Food Ilkley market are thrilled to confirm it be returning to The Grove this Sunday, 5 July, between 10am-3pm.
This will be the first time since February the event has taken place, the weather at the start of March and more recently the coronavirus restrictions have prevented it from going ahead.
A spokesperson said:
“We are thrilled to be back with a wonderful selection of regular and guest stallholders. There will be some changes in place to ensure everyone's safety, but the stalls are still our wonderful stallholders.” “Our volunteers will be on hand to ensure physical distancing is adhered to, there will be signs reminding everyone to keep safe. Sampling is not permitted and card payments are strongly encouraged. Stalls will be more spaced out with queuing systems in place. Hand sanitiser is available at the Information Stall, and our volunteers will be encouraged to wear masks and gloves. If the market does start to get busy, we will ask customers to please wait outside the area until it is safe to enter.”
