Allerton Road will be THE place to be this coming Saturday 15th June when the monthly Farmer’s Market will be expanded, the Lord Mayor will be in attendance, some of the shops will be having taster sessions and exhibitions and others will be running special promotions. At the same time we are relaunching the monthly farmer’s market with a record number of stall holders participating.
Local councillor Richard Kemp explains. “Allerton Road is the ‘Jewel in the Crown’ of South Liverpool but we want to work together both to boost activity and specifically to help our small local independent shops. People are looking more and more carefully at where their purchases, especially food purchases, come from. The local shops and the Farmer’s Market provide a challenge to the bland products of the big chain stores which import there food from anywhere with seemingly few protections for the consumer as we have seen from the horsemeat scandal.
We are determined that Allerton Road will remain a place where you can but a good range of products as well as buying or renting a house and eating and drinking. Allerton Road has one of the widest selection of good locally run businesses in Liverpool and has recently seen the opening of a new bakers and the ‘Interesting Food Company’. We intend to work with local residents and traders to ensure its continual success.
Lord Mayor Gary Miller will be present between 1 and 3 and local councillors will have their usual open air advice centre. Performances by the Waltones will be made with the opportunity to win exclusive performances by them and there will be Zumba dancing for the young and young at heart and face painting”.
