We are both very tired but all went well at the new farmers market. In a village hall in a small village not a million miles from Brecon we set up on trestle tables placed around the hall and in two central islands.
We were placed between our Brecon market neighbours who do wonderful meat and poultry and a gentleman who paints scenic watercolours of the area. Oposite us was a lady with cheese and we noted friendly faces manning stalls around the room. The stall holders are a fascinating bunch, we watched two ladies at work spinning wool, the watercolour man had huge local knowledge talking to people who admired his pictures about where they had been painted.
We had sold out by 1.00pm having taken a smaller amount of products to a new venue – the idea of pasties for tea all week having spent all weekend with them (nice as they are -honest) made us cautious but the wonderful Powys people bought us out. We did well with the dried liver and added jars of honey to our table.
The new venue is officially a success.
