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 10 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 been holding a Silent Auction at our December markets since 2012 and this has proven to be a very good fundraising event and is always very popular. We also serve complementary mulled wine to warm our customers up, on what is usually a very cold day in early December. At our market in December 2017 we had an excellent turn out and our stallholders reported that it was probably one of their best. Our Silent Auction raised a sum of £1,275 and together with our raffle table, café and stallholders donations, we raised the total sum of £3,822, which is a big boost for church funds.
Our regular stallholders, are as follows:
Bread & Co
Artisan Breads and Cakes, Bread & Co.
Large selection of local cheese. Fowlers are the oldest cheese making family business in England Fowlers Cheese
