As always there will be a range of ‘farm to market’ produce and a varied range of other local, seasonal, artisan and craft producers at the market. Seasonal vegetables, speciality meats, free-range eggs, cheeses, breads, cakes, chutneys, jams, charcuterie and confectionery producers will be lined up along the lane for you to browse, try and buy.
As always, a colourful selection of locally grown herbaceous perennial plants will greet you as you enter the Dark Walk from the Main Street of the village and with it being the month of celebrating our highly skilled and creative craftspeople we have a small considered selection of artisan craft stalls joining us. We are particularly excited to have local craft designer, Wendy Ward joining the market for the first time.
