It's almost a year since we launched the 'Vale Harvest' monthly market in Haddenham and it hasn't rained once on a market day!
Our first market in February was a great success and it's wonderful to see how far we've come over the last 10 months. The aim was to connect local producers with the local community, providing a convenient and affordable alternative to the weekly supermarket shop.
We now have a regular core of about 20 stalls each month. These include organic vegetables, fresh meat, artisan bread, home made cakes, quality jams, chutneys & oils, British cheese, Italian-style ice cream and local beer & wine. For many of the Vale Harvest producers, Haddenham is a hugely enjoyable and popular market to attend with its friendly and lively atmosphere. It's wonderful to see the village come out on a Saturday morning to have a browse, mingle with friends and catch up over a cup of coffee or even a glass of fizz!
Our customers are equally as important as our producers as the success of Vale Harvest depends on your continuing patronage. We'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your loyal support over the last year — we couldn't have done it without you — and we hope to be able to offer you a even better selection of high quality, local produce in 2014.
Our next market on Saturday 7th December promises to be full of festive cheer, with mulled wine, roasted nuts and carol singers. There will be a number of gift stalls in addition to the regular food stalls, both of which will have special offers as well as lots of seasonal goods on sale. It's a great time to place orders for Christmas or even collect pre-orders ....every little helps!
Please note that the market will break in January, recommencing on Saturday 1st February 2014.
