Highcross market

December 19, 2011

More than probably you want to steer clear of Leicester – or any other  – city centre this week, but if you do find yourself forced into last minute shoppping on Thursday it might be worth taking a look at  Highcross which is holding a Christmas speciality farmers’ market from 11 to 6pm. Now whether or not this conforms to strict definitions of a farmers’ market ( see Matt Gregory’s views on this) I don’t know, I’ve not seen a stallholder listing and it may be full of over-priced gimicky stuff, but you never know it might be a good chance to get something special.   And if it gives small traders and craft producers a chance to access the wallets of Highcross shoppers , then I’m all for it.
