Coleshill Country Market is celebrating a happy return from late March [the first market is March 19th ] after months of closure due to lockdown. The first few markets will be slightly smaller than usual, running from 9.00am until noon each Friday, from the gazebo in the garden of the Parish Room at 132 High Street, Coleshill. On sale will be a mouth-watering selection of home-baked cakes and savouries plus eggs, home-grown plants, preserves and bird food. Covid requirements will be in place, with producers and customers expected to wear a mask and keep a 2-metre distance from others.
“We’re all excited to get up and running again,” said Market Manager Janet Reilly. Our customers have really missed the high-quality produce and the warm welcome they get every Friday morning. Now seems like a great time to re-start, thanks to the highly-successful vaccine programme and there’s real optimism in the air. Before lockdown we were enjoying record sales with a wide variety of delicious home-cooked food, gifts, crafts and produce, and, we’re very much looking forward to seeing all our customers – our regulars and those new to the area.
We’re always delighted to have new producers too and if you enjoy cooking, gardening or crafts, please consider joining us. It’s friendly, fun and we’ll help you decide what to produce and how to package it. You can join the market for just 5p. Everyone is paid for what they sell at the end of each month after we’ve taken a small fee to cover the cost of running the Market. Anyone interested in finding out more about it should pop in any Friday morning or contact Janet at: firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone 01675-462122.
