Stroud Market News

It’s an absolutely bumper market this week with priority announcement numero uno being that Overton organic Eggs will be back. I know many of you have been awaiting the return of their awesome double yokers but I’m afraid you’ll have to get in the queue behind me on Saturday!

We will see some lovely local crafts at the market this week as Noemi returns with her fabulous recycled fabric clothes range. “Nimpy Clothing” is a seasonal favourite at the farmers market so check out this year’s range at all the markets between now and Christmas. Other local makers at the market this week include Jane Vernon’s Cloth and Clay, Claire Powell’s leaf pottery, Liz Dart Stained Glass, the Beadcounter, Dan Hides Pottery and Kalya.

Kalya, the producer of a top quality, handmade range of therapeutic aromatherapy products in Stroud was founded by Tanya De Leersnyder, in 2008. Kalya is a Sanskrit word meaning “healthy, well and able” and that is exactly the intention of her unique range. Tanya uses the finest locally sourced essential oils, creams and base oils in her blends. With over 18 years of experience in the field of aromatherapy, Tanya has applied her knowledge and practice in developing the Kalya range, which consists of 10 products covering a variety of common family conditions such as skin issues, sore heads, sore muscles and joints, common winter coughs and colds as well as products to balance, relax and energise. Kalya products make lovely gifts so with Christmas around the corner, pop in to Stroud market where Tanya sells Kalya the 1st and last Saturdays of the month. The full range is also available at the Made in Stroud shop.

Elsewhere Madgett’s Farm poultry have Goat meat for the first time; Ascott gardens has a wonderful range of dried flower table arrangements and wreaths and David’s chilli oils makes up for his absence two weeks ago.

We even have a new stall; Ruby’s Bakery is the maker of tasty and nutritious dog biscuits. They make all their products from human grade ingredients and use gluten-free flour, so that they can be eaten by dogs with sensitive stomachs. The top-selling flavours include liver and cheese, peanut butter, sardine and parsley, which is high in Omega 3 and apple and ginger biscuits for dogs who aren’t so good at travelling.
