Woolhope Farmer’s Market – 10th Birthday Celebrations

Woolhope Farmer’s Market – 10th Birthday CelebrationsA Long standing Herefordshire Farmers’ market is to celebrate its 10th birthday this coming weekend – Woolhope Farmer’s Market – 10th Birthday Celebrations. The well-supported market based in the small rural village of Woolhope, was originally formed 10 years ago through the Rural Hub and the Woolhope Dome project, when they received funding to encourage Farmers to add value to their products, and it is still going strong to this day.

The community market has a band of 21 trusty, local stallholders providing delicious produce such as; lamb, beef, pork, savoury flans, bread, eggs, preserves, cakes, bird seed, crafts, juices, jewellery and metal work.  Guest stallholders also appear at various different times such as Easter, Christmas and summer markets.

The market runs on the last Saturday of every month at Woolhope Village Hall. There are bacon rolls and refreshments available throughout the morning and you can even get your knives, scissors and tools sharpened whilst you shop.

Elaine Pudge of Pudge’s Lamb says: “We are delighted to have reached our 10th birthday. The market is a well-supported community event where people can get together, support each other and enjoy shopping for local produce. You can also have a cup of tea and a chat as well as an excellent bacon roll. It is an important part of village life that we all look forward to each month.”

The 10th birthday celebrations will include all of the regular stallholders, FREE birthday cake, a raffle to win a Woolhope Farmer’s market hamper and a book signing by local author John Ballance of his recently published book ‘Gas and Flair’. The money from ‘Gas and Flair’ along with the hamper raffle proceeds will be donated to St Michael’s Hospice. Refreshment money will be donated to St Georges Church, Woolhope.

The market will take place on Saturday 26th November from 10.00am-12.30pm and all are welcome.
