Our next market is planned for 7th July from 10.00 am. We were delighted to have so many people at our June Market (Jubilee Bank Holiday), with the majority of them sitting outside enjoying their refreshments in the sunshine.
The Farmers' Market is held on the 1st Thursday of each month, except January, from 10.00 am - 12.30 pm.
We are delighted with the success of our Farmers' Market which started in June 2012. We have 6 regular stallholders selling their fresh produce (freshly baked, home reared or home grown).
There is a real buzz and community spirit at the market and we feel that we have achieved what we wanted to do – bringing the church and the local community together.
A number of customers and stallholders have commented on the friendly atmosphere of the market. However, we have to remember that the stallholders are running a business and it is important that we support them in order for the market to continue being successful.
We have certainly seen an increase in the number of customers attending the market, so much so that we have recently had to increase the seating accommodation in our café in order to seat everyone.
Our regular stallholders, are as follows:
Large selection of Breads and Cakes, Whittlebury Bakery.
Locally grown plants from April to October.
The Tin Pot Flower Company, selling small flower arrangements in containers. Lindsey lives locally in Grandborough and she is very happy to take orders for special occasions.
The Jam Lady
