We’re looking forward to our market on Sunday 8th June, especially as it’s the perfect opportunity to buy Dads a unique treat for Father’s Day on June 15th. We’ve over 70 stalls to choose from, but here are four of our favourite buys to inspire you. There’ll be plenty more besides this weekend, including free screenprinting on your old t-shirt and new bread and cheese traders too. Come see! Free entry from 10am.
What man doesn’t love his cider and there’s none better tasting than a bottle of Worley’s, locally made at Shepton Mallet. Neil and Helen Worley make their delicious drink from fresh-pressed cider apple juice, once a year at harvest time – which makes them proper craft makers of traditional cider. Find them on the market square! You can even book a cider tasting session with them too.
Make Dad a nice cup of tea on Father’s Day, in one of these handmade, stoneware mugs. Designed and made by Chris Roddick of Potty Potters, it’s man enough for your strongest brew. Chris is inspired by medieval pottery and his recent “other life” as a professional jet pilot! He’s in the middle of the market square this Sunday.
Buying coffee on the go can be an expensive business – so save Pa some money by giving him this stylish thermos flask, designed with a memorable (and fashionable) moustache motif. Maker Julie Marchant has a whole range of other products in matching patterns and contrasting patterns- don’t miss her on the middle of the market square.
If your father likes to read, buy him one of these original lamps made out of vintage hardback books. Made by inspirational designer-maker, Claire MacDonald from Oh My Lovely, they come complete with a painted lampshade and are ready to go.
