Our next market will be on Saturday 6th July 2019 from 1pm to 5pm at the Balham Bowls Club.
100 YEARS OF COUNTRY MARKETS
As well as having our usual selection of home made cakes, home grown produce and beautifully made crafts and gifts, we’ll be marking the centenary of the first Country Market so please come and celebrate with us.
We’ll be serving Cream Teas - traditional scones with jam and clotted cream or a savoury version, served with cheese and chutney.
We’re also holding a ‘free’ raffle, with the chance to win a £20 gift voucher to spend at the next Market and we have a small gift for the first 30 customers.
The Balham Bowls Club and Balham Country Market provide a warm and friendly welcome to everyone, so whether you’re a regular customer or a new visitor we’re looking forward to seeing you this Saturday.
And finally, for this extra special occasion, we'll be staying open an extra hour until 5pm.
We are committed to reducing the amount of single-use plastic that we use in the market.
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.
