8-Year-Old Girl Designs Farmers Market Logo

Dorset Farmers Market Comp Maisie

7:26am 27th September 2016

Dorset Farmer's Market has a new logo, thanks to an 8-year-old girl from Pulham.

Maisie won a competition open to all youngsters across the county to design a new look for the company.

Judges picked her design it represents rural Dorset which they say is at the heart of buying local food and drink.

The logo will feature on their new Bags for Life and will be used on all promotional material for farmers markets across the county.
