Deepings all set for first Saturday market

Live music and an Easter Egg hunt are just two of the attractions planned for Market Deepings’ first Saturday market.

The market fulfils South Kesteven District Council’s commitment to provide a street market in all four of the district’s market towns as part of its work to attract visitors and grow the local economy.

An artisan baker and a fishmonger are among the stallholders that will be present at the market on 20 April which will be held in the Market Place.

There will also be the customary fruit and veg stalls alongside pitches selling fishing tackle, vintage vinyl records and much more. A charity stall is available every Saturday.

The market has been established by the council’s economic growth and regeneration company, InvestSK and has the strong backing of local people and businesses.

InvestSK’s Head of Town Centres Paul Allen said: “We’ve been working hard to make this happen because we know how important it is to the people of the Deepings to have a Saturday market.

“We want to make a positive difference to the people who live and work in our district and growing the economy is our number one priority.

“Our new market will add to the shopping experience and have the knock-on effect of supporting retailers by increasing the number of people visiting the town. We are committed to making this new market a success, and hope local people and visitors from outside the district will support the market and help it become a regular feature.”
