Long-standing Darwen Market stall, Rushton’s The Bacon specialists has had a make-over.
Rushton’s The Bacon Stall has been a fixture on Darwen Market for more than 50 years – and a new era has begun with a fully renovated, modern stall in the same location as part of improvements and modernisation at the market.
Proprietors Verity Ward, Dean Kenny and the team have been busy continuing to serve customers on a temporary stand but the new stall is now open for business.
Rushton’s The Bacon Stall sells locally sourced bacon and sausages. It also sells cooked meats, eggs, jams, sweet and savoury pies, and homemade cooked potatoes, coleslaw, sandwiches, and meals.
Proprietor and Darwen Market representative Verity Ward said:
All our produce is sourced as locally as possible. Our bacon is sourced and smoked in a real smoked house. We sell famous Carrs pasties which we cook on site, Cissy Greens pies made famous by Ade Edmondson from Haslingden and we cherry pick from many local bakeries to make sure we only sell the best quality at the best price.”
So many customers have visited saying it looks bright, clean and appealing. Customers have returned that haven’t been in for a while and we have had some new customers as a result.
The Council are supporting Darwen Market, with good investment and keeping good relations with traders old and new. We are really excited for the future of the market and the town centre.”
Councillor Phil Riley, the Council’s Executive Member for Regeneration, said:
It is great to see the difference that the investment in Darwen is having. With the redevelopment of Darwen Market Square, improvements in Darwen Market and in the promotion of the town, it feels like there is a positive move forward being made.”
