Retford Farmers Market

Chris was at his regular spot on the Saturday at the Retford Farmers Market, billed as the “big market” complete with brass band and a huge person on stilts, there was a great atmosphere.  The weather was unseasonably mild for the time of year, although, as per usual, the sun hit the stand just as the market finished! Happily, all our regulars turned up. Thank you again for your loyal support & also great to see some new faces sampling the fruit pies. We were proud to display our recent bronze award from the British pie awards, the Salmon & Broccoli pie was popular as a result. Denise is looking forward to being back there with you on the 20th April 2024 as Chris will be away attending a 2-day event in the South of England.

Bourne Indoor Market

Anna attended the Bourne Indoor Market on Sunday. It was a very busy morning with lots of customers there, she always enjoys this market our fruit pies are proving a real success at Bourne, Anna is looking forward to joining you at this market again on Sunday 21st April 2024.
