Dorset Farmers’ Market Policy Change Means New Venue For Shaftesbury Fairtrade

If you’re a customer of Shaftesbury Fairtrade, you’ll find Arthur Simmonds selling ethically-sourced foods and craft items at a new venue this weekend.

Arthur is taking a table at Enmore Green Church Hall at 10am to 12noon on the third Saturday of each month. Arthur has been part of the Dorset Farmers’ Market since the Town Hall event started but pricing charges make his attendance unviable.

Caroline Drever from Dorset Farmers’ Market confirmed that Arthur has enjoyed a not-for-profit discount, but she said rising costs mean they can no longer offer concessions.
