Coleshill Country Market is gearing up for Christmas. Come in and place your orders for our home-baked Christmas treats and party food including rich fruit Christmas cakes with or without icing, holly wreaths, flour-free chocolate roulades, shortbread, mince pies, sausage rolls, local honey, jams, marmalades, chutneys, speciality pickled onions, stained glass Christmas tree decorations and other favourites. These include scones, iced chocolate and coffee cakes, Victoria sandwiches, gluten-free cakes, quiches, huge barn eggs, lemon drizzle cakes, winter pansies, cacti, exquisite clothes for babies and toddlers plus hand-turned woodwork – they all make great gifts.
Our hand-knitted tea cosies, cardigans, scarves, leg warmers, woollen hats with matching gloves and exquisite matinee jackets are proving popular, useful gifts as the weather turns colder. Stop your mobile phone getting a cracked screen with our hand-made phone covers – and if you’re looking for colourful stocking-fillers, choose from our range of unique purses, bags, pencil cases and striking jewellery plus cuddly owls and hedgehogs, all at very reasonable prices.
We’re also taking orders for our newly-launched hampers with a selection of favourite Market goodies specially tailored to the lucky recipient – from quiches, cakes and preserves to plants or a warm hat and glove set. Delivery available in the local area. The hampers and Christmas produce can be ordered in advance then collected on or before our last market of the year on Friday, December 21st from 8 to 11.30 am at the Parish Room, 132 High Street, Coleshill B46 3BJ. Pop in to give us your Christmas orders and have a chat at the same time or ring Christine on 01675-462012, Deanna on 01675-463239 or Sally on 07860-346878.
We always welcome new producers so if you enjoy cooking, preserving, sewing, craftwork or producing home-grown fruit, vegetables, plants or eggs, we’d love to hear from you. Our weekly market has a warm, welcoming atmosphere and offers the chance to make new friends.
At our next Market on Friday November 9th, come and buy a beautiful hand-made stained glass poppy brooch – perfect for Armistice Centenary day on November 11th. Each brooch costs £5 of which £1 goes to the nationwide Poppy Appeal.
