Our own Mike of Indie Ices and his Wobbly Bobblies meets Paul Hollywood on ‘Pies and Puds’ on BBC1 this Monday at 3.45 pm 25 November 2013.
Mike and his Indie Ices trike are familiar to market goers and we are pleased to say he will be at our December market selling his Kulfi in good time for Christmas. If you miss Mike on 25/11/13 watch him on catch up TV – see him making Kulfi lollies in his kitchen, learn about Kulfi in India and see Paul Hollywood (of Great British Bake Off fame) use Mike’s Kulfi and ‘devour’ his Wobbly Bobblies!!!!!!
Christmas still seems a long time away but this Saturday’s market is a good time to order your special essentials to make sure you can collect them at the December Market.
We have fantastic produce at Oakwood Farmers’ Market, and Jane Boocock’s Country Pies award winning pork pies are just one example.
Last Christmas Jane entered her pork pies into the The York Livestock Market held at Merton, and in a blind tasting by over 200 tasters her pork pies came out as supreme champion.
She sells the pie in three sizes; small (approx. 7/8 oz.), medium (approx. 1 lb.) and farmer’s lunch size (approx. 2lb.). To make sure you are not disappointed this Christmas on the pork pie front Jane will have order forms at the ready.
The Committee of Oakwood Farmers’ Market+ commissioned a mini documentary showcasing the teamwork and community spirit created by our very successful market. The Farmers’ Market was the first project of REAP and if you would like to view the video follow this link:
We hope you enjoy it – you may even see yourself!
You can help us spread the word and get even more publicity by telling all your friends (via email, text, Facebook, twitter telephone or old fashioned letter or dialogue) about the video and inviting them to watch it.

Friends of Roundhay Park will be on the REAP stall this month where you will be able to purchase your 2014 calendar. The calendar is not only beautiful with wonderful photographs of Roundhay Park, but is extremely useful for inking in the dates of Oakwood Farmers’ Market.
Our guest stall this month is the place to sample locally made charcuterie including sausages and chorizo.
Nick and his team at The Reliance, make all of the charcuterie, using traditional techniques & recipes that have been carefully researched, pondered & tested. Their charcuterie is air dried & cured in a bespoke curing room in The Reliance’s kitchen, right here in North Street, Leeds. After weeks and months of careful, gentle curing & drying, salamis, coppas, lomos & hams are ready for you to enjoy.
If you haven’t been fortunate enough to have enjoyed these handmade delights at The Reliance, come and check them out at the market this month.
You can also find The Reliance’s products in several Leeds city centre restaurants including the splendid Friends of Ham bar in New Station Street, Leeds, which was recently featured in Jay Rayner’s column in the Observer Magazine.
