This week at the market


Saturday 23 January

What do you notice about this picture?  Yes, the door is open – Haynes Lane Collectors’ market has been REOPENED.  

This week the ground floor is open and soon the whole building will be.   Well done to Sharon and Sue for dealing with the situation so well, and for saving the building with a scaffold support.  Hopefully it will be with us for many years to come.  

All the little shops in the entrance to the courtyard will also be open this Saturday – Sian at Alan’s Antiques, Sally at Maltpress Trading and the Book Man, local journalist Jerry Green.   And don’t forget The Store Cupboard and Roots and Cycles, who will be open as usual.  Levain Bakery bread, Pasta de Grazia and Capo Caccia Sardinian produce (cheese, charcuterie and more) as well as Y Kairos (recycled children’s clothing) will also be trading from the courtyard this Saturday.
