We hardly like to mention it but Saturday 2nd November is the penultimate Market for 2019!
This means we’ll have a display of festive goodies including Traditional and Creole Christmas cakes, Christmas puddings, Preserves and Luxury mincemeat.
Christmas orders can be secured by completing an order form on Saturday and can be collected at the December Market. Alternatively, we’ll be at the Bowls Club on Saturday 21st December between 1 - 2pm when orders can be collected.
On Saturday we’ll be in the front room of the Balham Bowls Club on the right as you come in. Hopefully the back room will be full of happy England fans!
Tea and coffee will be available as usual and there’ll be savoury and sweet scones, muffins, mince pies and more....
And it's not all over yet at the allotment. We'll have freshly harvested baby turnips, carrots, chillies, pink fir apple potatoes along with chard and kale. Perfect ingredients for those winter warmer recipes to help keep you cosy in the evenings now the clocks have gone back.
Finally, on the Craft front, we'll have the usual range of home made goods including cards, earrings and coasters that will surely inspire you to make an early start with your Christmas shopping.
See you on Saturday..
We are increasing the range of products that are sold loose and are looking for solutions that allow us to comply with food hygiene practices, protect the products from contamination (particularly from allergens), and enable customers to get the product home intact.
All the jars used for preserves and chutneys are recycled, sterilised and re-used though always with fresh lids; many customers return their empty jars. Once our current stock of single-use carrier bags have gone we won’t be replacing them, instead we have re-usable hessian bags. A number of our craft producers specialise in up-cycling; check out the jewellery and the jam jar range.
Plant pots are re-used and, where possible, are not purchased new but are gathered from the community.
