Weekend Weather Woes

A change of plan for this weekend (February 13-14): the weather is playing havoc with us. 45 mph gusts forecast for Saturday which will turn our canopy into a sail. Been there before and it’s miserable. We’ve decided not to trade on Saturday at the Kensington Farmer’s Market, but instead to brave the cold on Sunday morning at Olney instead. Apologies for changes, but one way or another, if you want pies or sausage rolls this weekend, including our yummy Valentine’s Pie, you can get them!

Taking a small break…

Thanks to our customers for your support in 2015. We’re now taking a break until the new year. We’ll let you know shortly about our next trading days and offerings. In the meantime, some customer quotes from the market this weekend to keep you salivating til we reopen.
