Aberaeron Farmers’ Market

25 Jul

Well I must offer my congratulations to Ceredigion County Council who have at last today, sent me a press release telling me that Aberaeron market was launched recently and that is coincided with the visit of the HRH Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall. Well folks, just to remind you HRH visit there was on 11thJuly!!!

I’m sure there must have been a reason that I couldn’t have been told before the 11th but perhaps Ceredigion County Council felt it worthy of keeping it a secret…………….. maybe because it is only running until mid September that CCC didn’t think it worth telling media until now.

I’m sure many of our  Best Of Welsh & Borders producers would have liked CCC to get behind this market and perhaps have kicked it off with some marketing & promotion.

It is sad that the people of Aberaeron are not worthy of a regular farmers’ market all year round and disappointing that the recent expensive Fork2Fork programme couldn’t  have helped markets like this get set-up properly, but sadly that wasn’t to be was it?

    Such a shame that the website for Farmers Markets in Wales is showing that this market is not running! One phone call would be all it would take to change this, but that requires though and picking up the phone!

    Shame FMIW aren’t showing it and perhaps they might have received the press releases I did yesterday. But as you so rightly say CCC could have picked up the phone or emailed FMIW the details.
    Thankfully has got details of it though!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I don’t know anyone working in Ceredigion that would expect the council to tell anyone that this FM was planned and as for telling the press, that’s rather funny. CCC would have to communicate and that is not one of their strengths, not that they have many strengths
