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.
