Stansted Park Farm Shop Christmas Market
November 22 - November 24
Join us for an intimate food and drink Christmas Market in the Farm Shop courtyard this weekend, 10 am to 4 pm Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th November. This event is instead of the Stansted Christmas Fayre which has been canceled.
15 stallholders will be offering a superb range of local, artisan food and drink. There will be hot dogs and BBQ, soup, mulled wine and hot chocolate all within the Farm Shop Courtyard.
Many of the producers had been making product especially for the Christmas Fayre and were devastated to learn that it had been cancelled. The Farm Shop wanted to offer a last-minute outlet for those producers to help them sell their produce.
“I make 220 Christmas cakes per year for the Christmas Fayre and it’s my only outlet. I start making the cakes in July and feed them with rum throughout the year. I was devastated to learn that the Fayre had been cancelled, but the Farm Shop Christmas Market has been an absolute godsend to me” – Jennifer Gerrish of Something to Celebrate
