Garstang

Lancashire Life - - FRONT PAGE -

There’s lots to do in this pretty mar­ket

town once you’ve fin­ished your walk

Garstang be­came the world’s first Fair­trade town in 2000 and many shops, cafes and restau­rants stock Fair­trade prod­ucts. Al­though the town faces stiff com­pe­ti­tion from its larger neigh­bours Pre­ston and Lan­caster, it is more than hold­ing its own. It has a wealth of in­de­pen­dent shops and a bustling weekly mar­ket, which started in the early 1300s and now has over 70 stalls. There’s also a Booths su­per­store and a range of small in­de­pen­dent busi­nesses of­fer everything from classy be­spoke jew­ellery to health foods.
