The first Sunday Community Market has been judged a great success by stallholders and customers alike. Several stalls completely sold out of their home-made bread, pies and Indian food by lunch-time! There was also locally produced meat, mushrooms, ice-cream, blended teas, bedding plants, craftsmen and women, as well as a team of flag-makers. Most stallholders were happy with their takings and promised to be back at the next market on Sunday 5th August.

Hiro and his family grow their vegetables using the Shumei Natural Farming method, which involves planting carefully selected seed, without any inputs at all. These vegetables are grown on part of Yatesbury Biodynamic Farm, near Calne.
A huge 'thank you' to Ellie for working so hard to make it such a success.
