Getting crafty for Christmas

Malvern Editorial 22nd Nov, 2013 Updated: 20th Oct, 2016

A SPECIAL country market will be held to coincide with the Christmas lights switch on in Great Malvern.

Stalls will be open at the Lyttleton Rooms on Church Street between 9am and 12.15pm on Saturday, November 30.

The market is usually held on Fridays mornings and organisers are hoping to see familiar faces as well as attracting new customers.

The stalls have been a weekly fixture for more than 50 years, originally run by the WI and now operated by Country Markets.

Everything on offer is produced within seven miles of Great Malvern and organisers claim to have the freshest items in town, with many goods plucked from the ground the same morning.

Among the fruit and vegetables on offer are more than 12 varieties of apples while there is also a wide range of sweet and savoury baked goods including more than 30 types of cake.

There are also more than a 100 varieties of jams, preserves, marmalades and jellies.

Customers can also find unique crafted items such as rugs and scarves as well as pick up plants and flowers.

Market manager Margaret Ainscough said the traders worked merely to cover their costs because they had a passion for gardening and enjoyed running the stalls.

“Its surprising how many people in Malvern don’t know about us, we are a wonderful example of something where everything is produced locally with quality ingredients that we would feed our own families.”
