Genuine Jersey’s first market of the year will take place in St Aubin’s this weekend.
The group cancelled its spring event due to Covid-19, but the easing of restriction means the June 6 market can now go ahead, while adhering to government guidelines.
With everything from textiles and crafts to photography and food, the Genuine Jersey market promotes and showcases local produce. This year, the market will feature produce from Leyton Hunnisett of the Jersey Fisherman’s Association, the newest member of Genuine Jersey.
It will be a good chance for islanders to support local businesses, according to the organisation.
‘As part of our drive to Build Back Better and Celebrate Local during the pandemic, we are delighted to be able to put on our first market of the year while complying with Covid-19 restrictions. The markets are the perfect opportunity to get our members’ names out there, to see what products are popular and to make some sales,’ said John Garton, chief executive of Genuine Jersey.
‘We are extremely grateful to our sponsor, Islands Insurance, and thank them for their support. We hope islanders will come out to see what our exhibitors have been working on and help support local businesses during these challenging times.’
In line with government guidelines, the market will display clear health and safety messaging, and there will be plenty of space between its 10 stalls.
The Genuine Jersey market takes place on Saturday 6 June in St Aubin from 9am until 3pm.
