Dorothy Clive Garden to host FARMERS MARKET on Sunday 9th October 2011 (27th September 2011)

The Dorothy Clive Garden will host a Farmers’ Market on Sunday 9th October from 10.00am to 2.00pm as part of the Autumn Colour Open Weekends during October.

There will be over twenty farmers, growers and producers from the local area selling their produce that has been grown, reared, caught, brewed, pickled, baked, smoked or processed by each stallholder.

Curator, Marcus Chilton-Jones, said, ‘We are thrilled to be supporting the local community by hosting the Farmers Market at the Dorothy Clive Garden. There will be over 20 stall holders as well as live music and even some Birds of Prey! As autumn often provides the most interesting visual spectacle of the gardening year, with berries, hips and other fruits that adorn the garden, it makes the perfect setting for a family day out.’

The tearoom which is situated in the heart of the garden will be selling piping hot home-made soup, a selection of teas and a full range of blended and filtered coffee.

Sharon Fox-Byrne, who co-ordinates the local Farmers Market, said, ‘Farmers Markets are popping up all over the country now. This is in response to the increasing demand for produce that has been grown naturally and/or organically. The visitors will able to buy local meats from animals which have been raised humanely on pasture, local  handmade farmstead cheese and free range eggs plus much more.’

Admission is £3.00 per person and the Market is from 10.00am to 2.00pm. The garden will be open until 4.00pm. The event is free for members of the garden.
