HEXHAM is to host a special market on Wednesday, coinciding with the visit of Prince Charles.

The market, which runs from 10am until 2pm, will showcase products from around the county - from jam, honey, and cheese to liqueurs and local beers.

Traders at the showcase will include representatives from the Produced in Northumberland scheme, farmers' markets in Hexham and Morpeth, and Hexham’s regular market traders.

Goods at farmers' market stalls are produced within a 50 miles radius of the market and the produce is grown, reared or processed by the stallholder, while goods sold under the Produced in Northumberland banner are all authentic to the county.

The scheme is run by Northumberland County Council and promotes the use and sale of products made in the county.

The market takes place on the same day as the Prince of Wales' visit to Tynedale, and the Prince will be visiting the market along with Hexham Abbey.
