Farmers Markets

Have just had a few weeks without any markets , so have been busy stocking up on marmalades and chutneys. Have now got several varieties of chutney maturing nicely, and well stocked up with marmalade!

This weekend saw us at two markets. Saturday was Whaley Bridge, a market we have done many times before --but this time in a new venue, the Uniting Church. The move was successful with some new stalls as well as the regulars. It was nice to see many new faces amongst the customers too.

Sunday was the first market at the Little Mill at Rowarth. this is a very ou-of-the-way pub, popular as a Sunday lunch venue. The weather was rather unkind, with several very heavy showers, but there was a good flow of customers. We had a good day, and will be doing this market again next month.

On Saturday we finally heard that we have got a stall at the Great Peak District Fair in October. This is an extremely busy 2-day fair - so we will need to be organised and get stocks made well in advance where possible!
