The flags which are put out on market days at Northallerton on Wednesdays and Saturdays and Thirsk on Mondays and Saturdays are easily seen by both pedestrians and motorists and it is hoped that they will encourage passing trade to stop and shop.
Gurmeth Singh one of four Market Superintendents is pictured in Thirsk with one of the flags – Thirsk is holding an ‘Open Market’ on Monday – 29 August.
Established in 1145 the Thirsk market sells everything from socks to sweets.
All traders whether they are regular traders or casual traders are being encouraged to pitch up and book a place.
And it is hoped that shoppers will venture out and support their local economy.
