We’re delighted to tell you that Saturday 9 October will be our apple day. We missed last year (what with the pandemic and all) but thisa year we’ll be back with a great market. In addition to our firneds from Transition Tynedale doing their ever popular apple pressing we’ve managed to persuadeRoz Nichol from Weardale to come back and provde you with an apple ID service. If you want to find out what the variety of that apple at the bottom of your garden is, or even in the garden of your enighbours, bring a few typical examples to the market and let Roz try and determine what it is. Theer are said to be 2000 varieties of apple in the UK most of which you’ll rarely see in a shop, so if you want to see the difference between Mrs Lakeman;’;s Seedling and a Ribston Pippin, this is your chance. Roz will also have a reference collection of a wide variety of apples grown in the North of England for you to have a look at.
And Saturday’s market isn’t just apples; we’re expecting it to be the biggest of the year yet with 25 prodcuers, all from within 50 miles of Hexham bringing you the very best of their products. We’re delighted to have Lee from Stonehouse Smokery back after a few months of doing weddings and we welcome Warwick Bridge Flour Mill for their first appearance as a guest. Of course you’ll also find all the regulars!
Music will be coming from Tanners Yard, a Hexham-based Bluegrass band.
