A huge amount of effort was made to promote this month’s market by the two ladies who work so hard at organising it. With 24 stallholders, many of them first timers, it was as busy as the annual Christmas market! Customers were queuing from the moment we opened and the support from shoppers was fantastic…everyone was keen to engage with us and ask questions about who we are and what we produce.
There was a surprise visit from a very sweet environmental officer who was happy to answer our questions and offer advice….but of all the days to leave the temperature probe at home!!!! We make sure the butcher helps us comply with all regulations by vac-packing and labelling everything correctly for us. In addition everything travels in our refrigerated van where we monitor and log the temperature. Produce is brought in to the market in small quantities and kept chilled with our ice packs.
We sold out of our sausages, bacon and eggs (that’s everyone’s breakfast taken care of!!!) and we went home with just two haggis and five packs of burgers. We even had a couple of orders for our free range chicken and a large roasting joint – we really couldn’t be happier! So looking forward to June’s market and well done again to Daye and Gwenda for making this month’s such a success!
