Look out for two local food events in the next few weeks:
“The Scratch of the Hop”
Ledbury Places host an illustrated talk by local author Marsha O’Mahony. Marsha traces the story of hop-farming in Herefordshire, Worcestershire & Shropshire through local archives, interviews and a wealth of unseen photographs.
Date: Thursday 28th October 2021
Place: The Upper Floor, The Old Grammar School, Church Lane, Ledbury HR8 1DW
Tickets: £7.00 (to include a glass of real ale or soft drink)
Available from: www.courtyard.org.uk.
Hellens Farmers’ Market
Following a successful “try-out” in August, Hellens Manor at Much Marcle hosts another market on Saturday 6th November. This is the successor to the award winning Kempley Market which closed in 2020. Many faces from the old market will be there to tempt you with their local produce – and some new ones as well!
Date: Saturday 6th November 2021
Time: 9.30 to 11.30am
Place: Hellens Manor, Much Marcle, HR8 2LY
On this occasion there will also be a special display of carriages, with experts from the Carriage Foundation on hand to answer your questions.
…and they are selling bacon sandwiches!
