We had a brilliant day at the Summer Market – the sun even shone, which is a first for us! Though we were a bit disappointed that several of the food stallholders we’d hoped would be there couldn’t make it on the day, we had a varied range of craftspeople selling their wares, and the Fish 4 You man was happy with his sales, even though his neatly parked van went unnoticed by several customers. I’d recommend lots more signage when he returns for the Christmas market! Don’t forget, you can order from him in advance and collect on the day.
At our debrief after the market, we realised that the next market would be our FOURTH Christmas Pantry! I can hardly believe it, can you? We’ve all learned so much – about products, about Piddington, about ourselves – and had so much fun along the way, but our original aims are still uppermost in our minds every time we start thinking about organising the next event.
With this in mind, Francesca, the chair of the Pantry group, has put together an update to tell people where we are now, and what our aims are for the future. We still have lots of ideas and bags of enthusiasm, so keep an eye on this blog to find out what’s coming up next. Meanwhile, please read Francesca’s update below.
