The third Wincanton Street Market

The next Wincanton Sunday Market takes place in the Car Park in Carrington Way, behind the Co-op, from 10.00am till 2.00pm.

Everyone’s been asking for it and, having combed all the local markets for months, we have managed to find vegetable growers who are coming to the market with their produce.

- Stephanie Ball, the market co-ordinator

Liam and Lou Coombes from Bengrove Market Garden have a local smallholding with an acre of fruit and vegetables. They are on a mission.

We grow rare and everyday vegetables and fruit, according to organic principles. We believe in strengthening local food networks and reducing food miles by bringing produce directly to the people. Food should not only be sustainable and healthy but also enjoyable and exciting.

- Liam Coombes

They will also be bringing with them potted basil, Cape gooseberry, Calendula (English Marigold) and kale plants for people who like to grow their own.

There will of course be the usual array of other stalls as well and, what’s more, it looks like we might have some great weather for a change!
