Staffordshire’s biggest monthly Farmers’ Market now has a fresh new online presence, thanks to a new website funded by the team behind the Stone Food & Drink Festival.
The new site reflects the market’s updated look and feel, boosted by new bright marquees recently procured by the Borough Council, and will make it easier for visitors to find key dates and information on traders. The site was designed and built by the Stafford Website Company, which was commissioned by the Stone Food & Drink Festival CIC (Community Interest Company) in its capacity as promotor of the Borough Council-managed event. Festival Chairman, Richard Stevens, explains:
“While the monthly Farmers’ Market in Stone is managed by the Borough Council its origins lie with the first ever Stone Food and Drink Festival. We retained an involvement in logistical and promotional support of the market and, as a CIC, we are keen to reinvest funds from the annual food & drink festival into foodie-related events for the good of the town. With the Farmers’ Market being such a big draw for visitors, when we reviewed the website and realised it was in need of updating, financing the new website seemed like the perfect way to lend support.
“We think Stafford Website Company has done a great job and the new site will make it much easier for visitors to find out key information, with a comprehensive traders’ directory set to go live very soon.”
The new website has been launched just in time for the July edition of the Stone Farmers’ market, which will take place in the town’s Georgian High Street on 4th August (followed by Sat 1st September). Head to www.stonefarmersmarket.co.uk to see the new site for yourself.
