We don’t want to brag but… we feel that the market gets better and better! We were a bit nervous about the weather forecast for the November market but our loyal – and new – customers weren’t put off by the rain and were rewarded with a fantastic range of stalls and products. Here’s a selection of photos from Phil Banting. Look out for details of our bumper Christmas market – coming soon!
