Some Things That Easter Brings

Easter duck and Easter chick,
Easter eggs with chocolate thick.

Easter hats for one and all,
Easter Bunny makes a call!

Happy Easter always brings
Such a lot of pleasant things.

Happy Sixth BD

Now We Are Six – A.A. Milne

 When I was one I had just begun
When I was two I was nearly new
When I was three I was hardly me
When I was four I was not much more
When I was five I was just alive
But now I am six, I’m as clever as clever;
So I think I’ll be six now for ever and ever.

Oakwood Farmer’s Market will be six years old this Saturday 15th March 2014

Come and help us celebrate with a steel band, birthday cake and children competition.

To be clever, and never ever miss another market, click on the balloons and download our 2014 flyer with all the dates.

Thank you to http://www.cuttingcake.co.uk/ for this wonderful birthday cake.

We have established ourselves as an important community hub as well as a great place to shop for local food and produce. We know that you will have great ideas on how we can improve our offer and attract more people. Developing new ideas and making use of traditional, on line and social media as well as issuing regular press releases will be your part in our supportive and enthusiastic group.
If you think this sounds appealing and you know you can fulfill the brief, why not fill in our contacts form and find out more?
Please head your message “PR and Communications Volunteer” to make sure it reaches us.

The Cracked PanA new guest stall will be cracking eggs to make you fresh omlettes. The stall is ‘Cracked Pan‘ and we are looking forward to them offering a hearty nutritious breakfast to set you up on a winters’ morning.

For the first time we also welcome Richmond Brewery with a fine selection of Yorkshire ales. Take home a selection to go with your other purchases for a Saturday night feast.

Unfortunately for this month we will not have Mornington House with their jams, however the good news is we do have returning Artisan Bakers, Leeds Bread Co-op! They sold out when they made their first appearance at our market last year and we are delighted that they are coming back to start off the New Year with that WOW factor. Hurry down to make sure you don’t miss out.

We also welcome back the ever popular Ashuran Spices with their range of blended spices to make your own home cooked Indian, Mexican and Moroccan meals.

We will still have our regular bread stall along with all our regular stall holders with their fresh produce, so a happy new market year is guaranteed for a everyone.

We are looking forward to another successful year at Oakwood Farmer’s market, so to make sure you do not miss any of the markets why not download a copy of our 2014 leaflet. The leaflet not only gives you the dates for each market and informs you about the market ethos, but also is an attractive addition to any notice board, thanks to Debbie Samuel the local artist who kindly painted the picture.

It’s worth remembering that this year there are a lot of 3rd Saturdays that might surprise you as the first Saturday comes so early in the month.  We don’t want you to miss out!

(You could always give a copy to a friend or neighbour or maybe take one into work.)

Our next market on Saturday 21st December is great timing for you to get your fresh veg, meat, fish, pies, eggs and cheese for your Christmas dining.
As well as these essentials there will be lots of treats and ideas for last minute gifts.
We have chocolates from Cutting Cake patisserie, jams in presentation boxes and bags from Mornington House Preserves, shortbread in many flavours from Sawleys and the always popular marshmallows from Art of Mallow (recently featured on Look North). Bottles of apple juice, including stocking filler sizes, will be available from Yorkshire Orchards.
Making a special appearance is Mike of Indie Ices and his trike, Asha, recently featured on Paul Hollingwood’s Pies and Puds. How about trying the now famous Kulfi Artic Roll for your guests.
Oakwood Mince Pies
The atmosphere will be enhanced by Carol Singing, the Oakwood Xmas tree and complimentary mince pies. Hope to see you there.

If you still haven’t bought your Christmas tree do not panic! You will still be able to pick a beautiful real tree at the Christmas Oakwood Farmers’ Market.

There is nothing like a real Christmas tree, and this is nothing like one.
