Who’s coming? First peek

We have some exciting new stalls at the Autumn Market, not to mention our new local beer and cider tent!

There are several fantastic small craft brewers and cider makers in this area, and this is your opportunity to sample a few of their products, and take home a bottle or two for later. We’ll be featuring beers, ciders and apple juice from producers including The Little Orchard Co., Oxfordshire Ales and XT Brewing Co. Newsflash! XT-ONE was voted ‘Beer of the Year’ at Jimmy’s Farm Sausage and Beer Festival in July! Look out for the event to be broadcast on Countryfile, BBC 1.

Another newcomer to The Pantry is I’m Japanese, an intriguing stall containing a range of traditional Japanese family food cooked by Japanese-born Momo using locally sourced, organic, free range ingredients. What a wonderful chance to taste something so different and special – something you’d never be able to experience unless you were the guest of a Japanese cook! I’m sure Momo’s stall will be extremely popular.

You may already be a fan of the exceptionally tasty and tender beef produced by Oving Dexters from their small herd of Dexter cattle grass-reared on a farm in the village of Oving, Buckinghamshire. If so, you may wish to preorder directly from them in advance, to make sure of your chosen cut. If you haven’t tasted Dexter beef before, do try it – I’m sure you’ll be amazed at the flavour.

We’re also delighted to welcome St George’s Gelato, based in Haddenham, who make delicious fresh  Italian-style ice cream in small batches using simple, natural ingredients and free from artificial ingredients or preservatives.

Finally, as the cheeses supplied by Little Shop of Cheese, a small family business based in Buckinghamshire, were so popular at the Summer Market, we’ve invited Nicola Parker to run a whole stall devoted to British cheeses, so that you can choose from a much wider range. You may already know Nicola, as she takes a regular stall at Bicester Market every Friday.

Of course, you’ll find some familiar faces too – look out for more details soon.

You really can’t afford to miss the Autumn Market on 14 September, so put the date in your diary now!

I live in a small Oxfordshire village, and am writing a blog for The Pantry, a community project to provide the village with a place to meet and to buy locally made and sourced products and to raise funds for village causes.
