The next market will be on Saturday 3rd November 2018 from 1 to 4 pm in the back room of the Balham Bowls Club.

Over the last few weeks BCM Producers have been busy preparing for the final two markets of the year.

This week our kitchens have been filled with the wonderful sights and smells associated with this time of year.

Chutneys have been made and are maturing; dried fruit has been infused with alcohol for the Creole Christmas cake; brandy fed traditional Christmas cakes are waiting to be decorated; Christmas puddings are steaming gently on the hob and a collection of jam jars are waiting to be filled with rich mincemeat. All the usual favourites are still available.

There are just two markets before Christmas and they tend to be busy. Christmas cakes and puddings in various sizes will be on display and can be ordered for collection next month.

Please email us or place an order at the market on Saturday.

Cakes and puddings will mature and keep until after Christmas.

Orders can be collected from the Christmas Market on 1st December and there’ll be a special collection point at the Bowls Club on Saturday 22nd December between 1 - 2pm.

Local deliveries can be arranged outside these times.

Craft producers have also been working on a variety of projects with the Christmas market in mind. There’ll be plenty to choose from including greetings cards, jewellery, ceramic pot stands, coasters and more.

Clare is always on the hunt for preloved necklaces and bracelets which she takes apart and repurposes into colourful drop earrings. Leftover beads and other ‘street finds’ are also incorporated into her unique encrusted ‘cachepots’ which are perfect for hiding plastic plant pots (it’s Poinsettia time!) or for stashing those bits and pieces that accumulate on a dressing table...

Nigel will have some small turned wooden bowls for trinkets, a couple of small turned Christmas trees and some turned tea light holders.

Come early to avoid disappointment. We're all looking forward to seeing you.
