Caerleon Festival’s Farmers’ Market Review

Christmas came early to Caerleon.  The Town Hall was a treasury of treats – gastro-goodies and gifts.  Business was brisk.  The Community came together to browse, chat and buy, serenaded by Choir and Harp.

Santa “ho-ho’d” around the Hall to everyone’s delight.  Musicians, seeking refuge from the rain, relocated from the Common and carols were sung by many. A wonderful day with a warm afterglow.

Thanks to all involved in organising and managing a splendid occasion – particularly Lorraine & Henry for management, music & refreshments; Barbara “Raffles”; the “Decs & Tinsel” team; the Set up/Take down team; Chris T. aka Santa C; all our exhibitors; the choirs and musicians; our councillors; Caerleon Tourism Forum; Gary & town hall staff; The Rev. Sue; Friends at the Roman Museum & Baths; sponsors of the Tree on the Common – the list is endless.

Many thanks to the Community of Caerleon – most of whom would seem to have attended!!

    Hello, im so sad i missed the farmers fare. I own and run a little bistro and would have loved to have met and tried lots of local produce. Please pass on my details to any suppliers that are looking for a trade vendor. Thanks for your time

      Thanks for your comment and will pass on your contact details to the organisers of the farmers’ Market who will forward to their list of stallholders. See you there maybe in 2020

    What a lovely choice of local produce on offer. We really enjoyed the burgers too!
