The December craft and table top sale at Henhayes Community Centre had lots of gift ideas for shoppers still looking for that special present or an alternative to their usual Christmas tree. Local crafts people filled the main room at the centre with a variety of hand-made goods on sale. Many visitors stopped to admire the patience of Jodie Whatmore from Yeovil, who spends weeks kitting woollen Christmas trees and hopes to eventually turn her hobby into a family business.
For those who were still planning their festive meal for Christmas Day and party food for family get-togethers, the Crewkerne Christmas Farmers Market, visited on the day by the Crewners and South Somerset Community Choir, had plenty of fresh local produce to choose from. Many of the Somerset producers donned Christmas hats for the occasion and were happy to take orders and arrange collection/delivery of traditional festive fare for the table, such as turkey, goose, chicken and duck.
A selection of fresh meats, seafood, seasonal vegetables, cheeses, savouries, cakes, fruit juices and sparkling wines were also on sale.Customers who follow vegetarian, vegan or gluten free diets were also catered for at the last Farmers Market of 2017. The Crewkerne Farmers Market producers would like to wish you all a Happy Christmas and look forward to welcoming you to their 2018 markets, starting on Saturday January 20th, 2018 at 9 am outside of the Henhayes Community Centre.
