I was good to see so many adults and children taking part in the walking treasure hunt.

The children’s prize was won by two children from Alwoodley and their Mum has collected it. Well done to them.

The adult prize was won by Peter Stagg who managed to get every question correct .Coincidentally Peter and his band will be playing at the June market so you will be able to congratulate him and enjoy his music both at the same time.

For those who may want to see the answers you can download them here.


Come down to the May market and share a piece of this wonderful cake made for us by Mark Shipway and Kham Mai  of Cutting Cake Patisserie.

It celebrates our eighth birthday as if you could not guess.

Remind yourself of our past birthday cakes at Cakes through the ages.

8th BD Tomorrow

A steel band, birthday cake, face painting, craft demonstration, walking treasure hunt, St Gemma’s hospice, advice on “Play Street” and “Playing out“, and a plant and seed swap – who can ask for more.

You can – we have lots of fabulous food from our regular stall holders plus guests with jam, cheese, foraged food made into lovely cakes and fresh local asparagus and rhubarb.

See you at the market tomorrow.

We thought you’d appreciate a bit of fun while you shop this month.  So, we’ve arranged a Treasure Hunt – one set of clues for the children and another set for the grown-ups.

The rules for each competition are on the question sheet and you can one pick up at the REAP stall or print one off here.

Another first for Oakwood Farmers’ Market!

P.S. There will be a prize for each competition!  Get hunting!




Continuing from the last market, there will be the chance to watch, learn and engage with local artists and craft workers.

This Saturday we welcome Keiko Harada who is a Japanese Calligrapher. Keiko has been practicing calligraphy for more than 50 years, and has taught calligraphy to children and mature pupils for many years.

Play Street

On 21st May, residents of Gledhow Wood Grove will be at the market, to share their experience of using Leeds City Council’s Play Streets scheme to temporarily close their street for play sessions, giving children freedom, fresh air and fun. With Leeds Play Network, they can help others do the same on their streets. More information is available at the Playing Out and Leeds City Council websites.
