Spring Fair and Farmers Market.

On 30th March, it being the anomalous fifth Saturday in the month, we held our inaugural Farmers Market here on the farm (Pendeen Farmers Market is the first and third Saturdays of the month, and St Just is the second and fourth), on the same day as our Spring Fair. The market started at 10 am, and though chilly the sun was shining and hardly a breeze stirred the farmyard. There were about 15 stalls in total, including our own veg and eggs, plus a cafe, bread, meat, plants, prepared foods, jams, chutneys, and local crafts.

At midday the Spring Fair began, with fun and games for all the family, tea and cakes, and tours of the farm.

Itinerary of the afternoon's event.
The event was a great success, with several hundred people coming down to the farm, many of them on foot following the trail of red bunting from Market Square, showing a good level of support from the local community, as well as holidaymakers calling in for the day. We are aiming to hold such events every time there is a fifth Saturday in the month - watch this blog for details of 29th June! A massive thank you to everyone who helped with the event, both beforehand and on the day, and to everyone who came down to support the farm and have fun!
