January Market 2019

Come along to our January market on Saturday 19th from 9:30am-2pm at Wivenhoe Congregational Hall, High street, Wivenhoe.

For anyone who’s made a resolution to be greener and/or healthier in 2019, our stallholders can help! Reduce your food miles with locally produced fruit, veg and meat, some of which is also organic/biodynamic, and fresh fish from a local supplier. Reduce plastic use by bringing your containers to refill with cleaning/personal care liquid products and dry goods such as pulses and couscous. Get your gifts and homewares from local craft and design stalls and small eco-friendly businesses. Have a tasty vegan lunch or snack from the market cafe. Bring your kids to have fun at the craft activity being run by the Woodcraft Folk. Above all – come and enjoy shopping and socialising in a convivial atmosphere!
