Regular customers will be used to seeing stall-holders standing outside the premises of Crosby Community Association.
The new location will provide scope for providing refreshments where customers can sample some of the cakes before buying and for new producers to sell their goods.
The organisers are now looking for new bakers, growers and crafters.
If you are good at this and want an outlet for your goods, get in touch with Ian Bailey on 01724 350134 and he will explain how the market works.
Country markets are co-operative social enterprises producing goods for direct sale to the public with a producer base extending to thousands.
They are located throughout England, Wales and the Channel Islands.
Each is registered as an industrial and provident society.
Country markets provide a retail outlet for high quality home-made produce and an opportunity for people to profit from their skills.
The producers, who must be shareholders of a country markets society, supply baked goods, preserves, honey, eggs, fruit, vegetables, plants and crafts.
Many country markets also sell meat, fish and dairy produce.
Country Markets produce local food for local people, thereby reducing food miles.
They promote regional food and crafts, many of which are unique or unusual, thus helping to preserve, and sometimes revive, traditional foods and crafts.
