I finally checked out the Herne Hill Farmers' Market last Sunday and having used to frequent the Oval Farmers' Market at St Marks church on a Saturday ran by the same people, I knew I was going to be in for a treat.
I was really impressed with the size of it and thus satisfied that this will hopefully be the market cuvcuv can be attached to. I'm looking at a Farmers' Market as they have the right rudiments for selling a handmade product with an eco message.
Customers can get to know the brand, talk to me about the products and more importantly, it will be somewhere local, a location I can get to fairly easily.......on a bike with a trailer is the plan, yikes!
|I could get there really early and have a snooze or even better, turn up the night before!!|
It was so buzzy and bustling with people. Its not pretentious nor overly expensive. Theres some interesting foody bits....for me mainly cheese! I bought an extra mature cheddar from Greens of Glastonbury that tastes more like a comte, quite strong and stinky but yummy!
And I splashed out and bought 2 different types from the Bath Soft Cheese Company A square shaped soft and squidgy White Cheese and a stinky Blue - exquisite! Their packaging is rather cool and slightly unusual with a quirky font. All made from very very old recipes. I thoroughly recommend! Check out their website and find out where they will be this weekend to have a try!
Bumped into Mare of Natty Peeps - talented knitter and arty jeweller. I love her decoupage necklaces and hand knitted table mats and coasters. She had the most gorgeous cashmere mix summer dress in a blush pink that Cecilia would look the cutest in!
There were quite a few craft, gift and homewares stalls that cuvcuv would sit happily next to. Wish it was sooner but will have to wait til August!
