Tomorrow, Tuesday 1st May, will see the monthly Stirchley Community Market come round again, at Stirchley United Working Men’s Club from 4pm – 8pm. It’s been a really wet few weeks since our last market was rained off, and to be honest, the forecast doesn’t look too good for tomorrow either, but we should be able to take cover inside the lovely confines of the club, meaning that we’ll be dry and warm. We’ll be keeping our fingers crossed that we can all get outside for the next market in June, which is on a bank holiday.
We have lots of stalls to choose from and some new stallholders, (including a new hot food stall) and also a treat in the form of some live music at around 6pm, from a great new acoustic, instrument-swapping, harmonising, local folk band called the Mistakings: so come along and have a listen and a shop or a shop and a listen. We’ll also be selling fried chicken seasoning and tunes from Stirchley very own folk-rock supergroup, Friends of the Stars.
Here’s who we’ve got coming:
Urban Harvest, a project to turn your fruit into locally produced juice and more;
A selection of worldly IPA’s from the wonderful Stirchley Wines;
Plants and preserves from the picturesque and charitable Martineau Gardens;
Spices, herbs and cooking ingredients from jACKrABBIT;
Preserves, conserves, marmalades and more with Artisan Preserves;
Lots of original cakes from Spatulas at Dawn;
Deli delights from our Bournville neighbours, Leverton and Halls;
