There are big changes to this year’s Clitheroe Country Market special Christmas event.

There is a new venue, earlier date and longer opening hours with the event taking place on Saturday November 14th in Clitheroe United Reformed Church upper hall, off Moor Lane, which provides disabled access. It will be open from 10 am to 3 pm making it easier for shoppers to browse the homemade and handcrafted items on offer.

There will be Christmas cakes, mince pies, seasonal jellies, decorations and hampers to buy or order for nearer to Christmas. There will also be cakes and pies, preserves, home grown plants, flowers, seasonal vegetables, fruit, and unique handmade wares, including gift items, cards, hand knits, textiles and jewellery.

Buying and selling locally means that the community benefits both financially, with money staying within the community and environmentally, with fewer “food miles”. Clitheroe Country Market members have been producing and selling their home baked, home grown and handmade products in Clitheroe for more than 40 years.

Refreshments will also be available on the day, including tea and coffee and the popular cake of the day. Admission is free and a warm welcome awaits all.
