Plant & Produce Village Market 1st June 2013

Plant & Produce Village Market 1st June 2013

The Beacon Churches held their first produce market on Church Lane on 1st June. The delightful affair was reminiscent of an old fashioned street fair cum tea dance with bunting, stalls, and tea and cake. Once again the weather was kind to us and we had glorious sunshine lighting up the many stalls laden with huge selections of wonderful home grown plants and delicious homemade produce. It was lovely to have a number of the local businesses selling their wares at stalls too and visitors to the fair enjoyed the beautiful flowers, vintage home ware and delicious deli foods on offer. An unexpected but particular favourite was the authentic German bratwurst VW van.  The event raised a whopping £980 and no doubt left a few tummies and greenhouses feeling rather spoiled too.
