Sudbury Farmers’ Market has just got a big boost from local solicitors Steed and Steed as they have agreed to sponsor the market for another 12 months. It is so important for any thriving farmers market to have support from residents and businesses alike.

It is great to partner with a local company that sees the value in the support of a community event such as Sudbury Farmers Market bringing local artisan producers in front of their local customers. Karen Goulding, partner at Steed & Steed commented ‘ It is a great honour to be part of something so local to Sudbury. Steed & Steed has been an integral part of the local community for many years and understand the importance of events such as the Farmer’s Market to keep our community spirit strong and our town thriving. We look forward to meeting everyone again at the market.‘ This Friday you will find Steed and Steed inside St Peter’s Cultural Venue so please do come along and feel free to get any information that you may need on a whole variety of services that are available from their Sudbury office.
