February Market 2019

Show your local market some love on Saturday 16th February from 9:30am-2pm at Wivenhoe Congregational Hall, High street, Wivenhoe.

Stalls include locally raised meat (including biodynamic and organic), locally grown fruit and vegetables, and locally made jams and preserves, crafts, cards, cakes and savouries (including vegan). See below for the full stall list!

The market cafe offers amazing lunches and snacks with lots of vegan and gluten free options plus teas, coffee and soft drinks. There are also also refill stalls for dry foods and household cleaning, laundry and personal care products – bring your own containers and bags please! New this month – a Cable Amnesty for all those old computer cables you may have been hoarding. Just drop them in the bin provided on the refill stall.

Also new this month – a swap stall for kids’ clothing and school uniform, run by Wivenhoe Woodcraft Folk. Bring any unwanted/outgrown items to their stall at the market, or choose something to take away, or both! A donation to the Woodcraft Folk would be appreciated but isn’t essential. There will also be a ‘pay what you like’ preloved toy stall run by the children – donations of toys are welcomed. To arrange pickups of donations if you can’t bring it yourself on the day – email wivenhoewoodcraft@gmail.com.

There will also be live music from our busking spot and a craft activity for children.
