An annual market which celebrates and promotes Fairtrade is set to take place.

The Rutland Fairtrade Steering Group is hosting the market at Oakham Castle on Saturday, November 16, from 10.30am to 3pm.

The event will be opened by Oakham mayor Coun Adam Lowe and will include a large range of goods.

Stallholders will be coming from Stamford, Melton, Loughborough and Oundle.

As well as the usual Fairtrade clothes and accessories, jewellery, crafts, gifts and cards, there will also be cakes, jams, and Christmas puddings on offer.

The event will feature a raffle and Fairtrade quiz. Refreshments will be available.

The county has had its Fairtrade status renewed in the past year and the market will help remind people of the importance of choosing Fairtrade products.
