Jersey’s outdoor events calendar gets off to a tremendous start with the Simply Spring market launching this week. The Island’s largest offering of local produce, arts and crafts will be back in the Royal Square, offering a wide selection of seasonal delights and Easter themed gifts as well as fun for all the family.

Over 40 stalls will be on display in the centre of town, including a number of Genuine Jersey members. Along with gifts and homeware, the event will be providing live music, delicious food and entertainment making the Royal Square a great destination for families to come and enjoy the colour and vibrancy of springtime. The markets will feature the Helier Morris Men, Jersey Lilies along with La Robeline, Pizza Projekt and Scoop – The Sustainable Cooperative.

Market organiser Sarah Taylor said: “We were really overwhelmed at the response we had from the last market, so we want to ensure that we offer visitors, shoppers and Islanders alike the same high-quality event this Spring. There is a real magical feel to these events, where local producers and artisans come together with great community spirit and where their talent is recognised and celebrated. We look forward to welcoming even more visitors and hope that they will feel inspired to take away a special piece of Jersey with them.”

John Garton, Chief Executive Officer of Genuine Jersey, said: “The first market of the year is always eagerly anticipated, and we are thrilled to be able to host this event in the heart of St Helier once again. Following the huge success of Simply Christmas, we’ve had an influx of enquiries from local businesses keen to join the Genuine Jersey community and to be involved with the Simply Spring event, so we are looking forward to seeing a few new faces at the market.”

Simply Spring is set to take place in the Royal Square from 4th to 6th April, open between 10am and 7pm each day with free entry for all. The event has been kindly sponsored by Signtech.
