There was Minion Madness in town after one of the popular Despicable Me characters paid a visit Marshall’s Yard Farmers Market.

The arrival of the Minion created excitement and a buzz around the Yard and children were given the chance to have their photograph taken with their favourite friendly yellow character.

The Farmers’ Market was on throughout the day, with a range of high quality producers including Redhill Pork and Turners Baker and Bespoke Brownies was one of the latest producers to join the award winning Farmers Market bringing a real treat for shoppers.

There was plenty for youngsters to do once they had met the Minion including a bouncy castle, candy floss machine and an ice cream van.

There was also a performance from the Retford-based band ‘The Idle River Boys’, who performed classic songs around the fountain area.

And Raptor Rescue brought a number of birds of prey which shoppers could hold and have photos taken with. Marshall’s Yard assistant manager Annabel Plumtree said: “It was a great weekend for families to come along and shop, with plenty to do and see.

“We were really lucky with the weather and it was nice to see shoppers relaxing on the fountain area, enjoying all that was on offer this lovely summers day.”

The next market within Marshall’s Yard will be the Country Living Market on August 29, where there will plenty of things to do for families.
