Minchinhampton Country Market - December 2018

Arriving upstairs at the Country Market on a Thursday morning, the customer finds an almost bewildering array of goods, all home made and locally sourced in one way or another, from individually crafted and unique greeting cards, to colourful toiletry bags; from Seville marmalade to hearty casseroles; from Gloucestershire honey to baskets of hyacinths; from buttery mincepies to home made Christmas cakes and puddings; from delicious loaf cakes to savoury cheese straws.

ChristmasMarket1218All our goods may be ordered in advance. Join us at market on our "Taster Day" on November 29th. Our last market before Christmas is on Thursday 20th December, when ordered goods may be collected and last-minute pur-chases of gifts, vegetables, eggs etc may be made.

For those who find it hard to get to market on Thursdays, we are holding a special Christmas Market on Saturday December 8th, from 9-12 a.m. On sale will be Christmas food, gifts, jewellery, wooden items including toys such as a beautifully made Farm Set, as well as bowls of bulbs, table decorations and festive wreaths.

Recently we have been publicising the fact that we need new producers to replace those who are retiring. Thankfully we have welcomed two new members but would love more to join us. Your skills may be in baking, preserving, plant-growing, crafting or administration, or you may just be willing to help. Come and see us, we are a happy team and being at market is a wonderful way to be part of the local community.

Our first market in the new year will be on Thursday 17th January. We look forward to seeing you at all our markets! and do follow us on Facebook at Minchinhampton Country Market.
