Extra Christmas Farmers’ Market with Gifts – Saturday 21st December

Following the success of the extra market we held in 2012, before Christmas we will be offering you a special market on Saturday 21st December between Christmas market shoppers (Small)10am and 3pm.  Around 75% of the regular Creake Abbey farmers’ market traders will be here plus some extras.  The Creake Abbey Food Hall is taking orders for turkeys and you can pick up your pre-ordered Christmas turkey, duck or goose that day.  You will find vegetables and fruit, Christmas cakes, other cakes, tray bakes, cupcakes, dairy produce, artisan beer, apple juice, artisan breads, morning goods, puddings, pies, tarts (sweet and savoury), olives and prepared meals made with the finest local ingredients.    The Café and Food Hall will be open with bookings for lunch taken from 1.30pm.  Outside the Food Hall the Café team will be serving hot food to keep you warm.

For turkey orders please contact the butchery at the Creake Abbey Food Hall by emailing tom.wheeler@creakeabbeycafe.com or by calling 01328 730399.
