Local Excellence Market

It was an excellent day for the Local Excellence Market. The town crier was out and about letting people know what else was going on: one more day of the craft fair, and Scout fireworks on November 5th behind Long Furlong Community Centre ( Gates Open 6:30pm. Park at Tilsley Park.)

The Carbon Cutters had a clever device to see how hot things are. As you can see Helen, who sent me the picture of the fallow deer recently, is cool where she is insulated but hot where she is not.

Here they are discussing my thermal image. There is also a picture of Harry’s Thermal image on the Harry dog blog.

Lots of good stalls as always. There were cakes from Jane’s Kitchen…

Jill Carver had two suppliers showing their wares. Jill is seen here holding a picture of the Moroccan Argan Tree. The Olive Oil and Argan Oil, in the picture, come from Morocco. The Argan oil is very good but takes a lot of extracting from unyielding nuts and so is not cheap.

There were also a couple of vegetable stalls, an apple stall, meat stall, craft stalls, and local beers, which if the town council have their way we will be able to drink on the Market Place on special occasions (front page story in the Abingdon Herald last week).

    I thought the market was excellent. It was so nice to buy veg from a stall instead of a supermarket. One of the stall holders said that the next one is in March. Is this right? It seems crazy! I’d like this kind of market much more frequently. It was fab!

    I think the local excellence market is always held on the 5th Saturday of the month.
    Don’t forget there is also a Farmers’ Market on the 3rd Friday of every month but this is all over by lunchtime, so not so good if you are not in Abingdon during the day.

    I agree Cathryn. I always look forward to this market. It brings a real buzz to the Town Centre. Love the Farmers’ Market too – this is one of the good things about living in a small town.

    I see the LibDems promoting… the LibDems
