City & Country Farmers’ Markets – Oval

City & Country Farmers’ Markets – Oval

L’Arche and Rock Paper Scissors will be at the City & Country Farmers’ Markets (CCFM)

at

St Mark’s Church, The Oval

Saturday 12 March

10.00am-3.00pm

 

It has a very social feel with friends meeting at our designated outdoor café area to eat some of the delicious food on offer – including Oriental Thai food and delicacies from Guadeloupe. If you fancy arts and crafts there are also stallholders selling items such as unique jewellery fashioned from bicycle chains.

The market has proved to be extremely popular not least with the farmers and other food producers who prefer it over other markets, but with shoppers who stagger home with bags full of shopping and come even when the weather is bad.

Callout for Artists & Makers for the Easter Fayre in West Norwood

The L’Arche charitable community and local maker collective Rock Paper Scissors (RPS) are holding their Easter Fayre at the L’Arche Garden in West Norwood on Sunday 20th March.

In addition to selling L’Arche and RPS art and craft work, limited space is being offered to other local makers. (see below for map and photos of the Garden).

 

L'Arche & RPS Easter Fayre Poster

Up to 12 tables/sections of tables will be available, each with average dimensions of approximately 3 ft by 4 ft.  A variety of tables will be provided in and around the garden of the L’Arche community lodge at 21 Idmiston Road SE27, located inside the garden workshop and greenhouse and outdoors.  While L’Arche will provide the tables and have some tarpaulins and a gazebo to provide protection in the event of bad weather, makers may wish to bring their own covers/gazebos (subject to size and garden location).

Each table/space will cost £15 and all of the fees will go directly to the L’Arche charity.

Further information about L’Arche and RPS, including photos of the L’Arche Garden, can be found at: http://www.larche.org.uk
