A market for everybody.
Just about – do you have this sort of thing in New Zealand?
We have markets in some areas.More market gardeners I would imagine. But our local one is quite good.
BUXTON Held periodically. Has a number of stalls selling locally sourced pies, cheeses etc and one stall which has started serving locally-reared Buffalo Steaks. Cheeses include :- Cheshire with either Chives and onions, Caramellised onion and one of my favourites – Cheshire with locally brewed Wincle Old Hag Beer and mustard.
For anyone interested, web sites include ‘The Cheshire Cheese Co & Wincle Brewery.
Oh that sounds lovely, thanks for including that eric – one NOT to be missed 🙂
Keep a look-out on the Buxton website since periodically they also have a Continental Market outside the pavilion. Here you can sample lots of ‘foreign’ delicacies, hot and cold. can recommend that you try the Turkish Delight. It is!
Let me get a couple of plugs in here. Buxton holds two festivals annually. A music Festival, and a Gilbert & Sullivan festival, both excellent and worth a visit.
Look out especially for appearances of the Tideswell Male Voice Choir!!!!! We have some excellent singers, are accompanied by a superb concert pianist, a fantastic conductor, and include in our shows some first-class young soloists of both sexes. To find out more, visit our website – TideswellMVC.com
End of commercial.
That’s fine eric, just plug them all. In fact just message me when they are on so that I can list them on this blog. 🙂
