The Food Assembly is a new way of running a farmers market style event, but where all your shopping is done online and in advance. You then simply collect your order from the designated collection point, where you can meet the producer, chat, and enjoy all the benefits and interaction of a regular market.

Thank you to everyone who braved the weather for West Kirby Farmers’ Market last weekend – we really hope everyone enjoyed their chocolates and sweets, and we’ll see you all next month (Saturday 23rd May, 9-1)!
This weekend is another double one for us, with Frodsham Independent Market on Saturday and Wallasey Food Fair on Sunday.
Hope everyone has had a happy (hoppy?) Easter, and that the bunny brought lots of delicious chocolates! The last thing we heard from him, he was lying on a nice sunny beach, drinking something out of a pineapple with a bright umbrella sticking out of it.
Before the bunny jetted off on his vacation, he joined us for the first Frodsham independent market. It was also our first time visiting Frodsham in ages, so it was great to have a look around after the market and grab a coffee at the new Whitmore & White Food Hall.
Sadly this marks the end of Easter, and the removal of our Easter eggs and other products from our online boutique. We have a lot of big things planned to replace them in the near future, so keep your eyes peeled for updates!
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!).
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.
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!
We certainly enjoyed being part of Wilmslow Artisan Market’s 3rd Birthday last Sunday, especially with all of the balloons! Very glad the Sun decided to make a return after a drizzly start to the day. Continue reading 3rd Birthday Celebrations
