Ashfield Council Senior Markets Officer Dave Barker, said: “It will be a great community event bringing a buzz and vitality to the town centre.

we have sold more stalls than any previous year and have also added an element for the younger visitors to make this a family event and not just a plant market.”

He said the event has now sold out all 54 available market stalls with enquiries still coming in.

He added: “There will be a whole range if different stalls selling plants and gardening equipment and rides for the children to make it a family event.”

For the younger visitors, Sure Start and Sutton Academy will be on site with childrens activities, face painting, grow your own sunflower/vegetable kits, grassheads and many other activities.

There will be small fairground rides and carousels suitable for small children, food and refreshment vans.
