Egg-citing events ahead

Thank you to everyone who visited us at West Kirby Farmers’ Market last Saturday, it was great to see the market so busy! There were lots of Easter gifts being purchased – hope everyone enjoys them next weekend.

With the Sun finally making an appearance, we welcomed two new summery additions to our marshmallow range – mango & passion fruit, and mandarin & Cointreau. As always our mallows are made with only natural ingredients, and the colour comes from real fruit juices and purees. It was funny to watch what started out as a bright orange mandarin mixture whip up to an almost pure white mallow. Just to confuse you (and us!).

Hopping our way to Market

We were out braving the cold in Altrincham Market last weekend, but kept warm by good coffee and good company from the other traders.

We’re very happy to report that we are moving back indoors this weekend, and are in equally lovely company at West Kirby Farmers’ Market. If you’ve been keeping track of our ever growing Easter collection, we will have the entire range on offer at West Kirby, alongside our usual confectionery. We also have some new marshmallow flavours for you to try, and our very popular milk chocolate dipped honeycomb is back, alongside our latest creation – “Hot Cross Buns”.

So if you’re looking for handmade eggs, or something a bit different for Easter this year, make sure you catch us from 9am-1pm on Saturday 28th in St Andrew’s Church Hall, Graham Road, West Kirby CH48 5DE. You can also pre-order all of our Easter products for collection from the market, get in touch if you would like to place an order.

Back at Altrincham!

It was nice to be back at Altrincham Market for the first time since the awful fire in Market House, and great to see that it is back on its feet and busy as ever!

With the market falling just before Mother’s Day, last minute gifts seemed to be the order of the day, with some seriously covert purchases going on whilst Mum wasn’t looking. We hope that everyone enjoyed their Mother’s Day chocolate gifts, and if you’ve run out already you can find us at Altrincham again this coming weekend, so pop down and stock up!

Easter and Mother’s Day 2015

This time last year, we had only just started up, and Easter came and went without us being able to do much about it, so it has been great fun playing around with our range for this year!

The Golden Goose

It’s almost the end of the month, and time for West Kirby Farmers’ Market – see this month’s newsletter here.

Deck the stall…

With December upon us and Christmas just around the corner, it’s time for a quick announcement regarding Christmas markets.

We have changed up our product range a bit for all markets between now and Christmas. Sadly this means that patisserie is off the menu until the new year, but instead we will have a range of gift ideas and festive treats. This includes our confectionery in new presentation gift tins, boxes of festive biscuits, mince pies, chocolates, and our luxury Christmas cakes. If you can’t make it to a market, or would like to send someone a gift through the post, most of our range is also available on our Online Boutique. Continue reading Deck the stall…

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Levenshulme Market - 08-11-14Everywhere……… mince pies!

Thank you to all the people who braved the mild monsoon to visit Levenshulme market this weekend. We also had our last visit to Altrincham Market until our Christmas weekend (11-14th December). We’ve really enjoyed being there over the past few months and are definitely looking forwards to a whole long Christmassy weekend in such a lovely atmosphere.

Mince Pies - big & miniWe also had our first mince pies of the season – big and mini, both stuffed with brandy soaked vine fruits. The mini ones were so popular, extra reinforcements had to be made late on Saturday night.

Pre-orders are now being taken for mince pies and Christmas cakes to be collected from any of the December markets in our events calendar. Get in touch for more information and to place your order!

Marshmallow ghost army?

West Kirby Farmers’ Market took a spooky turn this past Saturday! As you can see from the snaps below, we went a little mad with the Hallowe’en theme……

Our bat mascot was very much admired by the market goers, so much so he had to take refuge in an apron!
