I HAVE been staring at the list for Saturday’s market for 20 minutes and no single storyline jumped to mind! I am blank! So, I had best stick to letting you know who is “in”.

There are a few monthly (3rd Saturdays) stalls, Daphne and Margot, handmade children’s clothes; a very popular and well-established maker whose own children are too old to wear what she makes nowadays!

Also, In a Spin will be in attendance, again, a well loved stall that has been coming many, many years. All fabulous hand knitted kids wear and there’s usually a bit of spinning going on behind the stall too. Karen Hilliard Ceramics presents strikingly coloured ceramics from her studio in Uley, whilst May Hofman is a talented young jeweller from Stroud. Sibling Distillery are also monthly attendees. No longer a fledgling business the Cheltenham based Gin distillers, literally four siblings, have matured into a well run and prosperous brand over the years and are always an attraction on the 3rd Saturdays. The Garlic Farm completes the list of monthly attendees so there’s just room for me to mention VQ Country Wines and The Welsh Cake Lady, who are both back from holidays and were certainly missed! I should also mention the wonderful bunches of flowers available at Hotch Potch organic and Good Small Farms and, indeed, the Lavender Garden and Malvern Salvia who are two horticultural specialists bringing their wares to market. Let’s hope for a dry day!
