Bowhouse Market Weekend | March

Tuesday, March 24

My parents discovered Bowhouse at the end of last year and have been wanting to find time for us to visit together. I feel really fortunate that we were able to visit the March market weekend as it ended up being the last one for the foreseeable future. I still wanted to share this post when it was fresh in my memory because when it opens again the traders will need your support more then ever.

Bowhouse is a food hub where traders are given the opportunity to sell their product directly to the local community. Hosted in their refurbished barn it's two days full of food and drink with stalls selling locally-sourced produce, fish, meat from artisan butchers and gorgeous bread.

We spent a good hour wandering around looking at everything on offer before deciding which goodies to take home. The market has such a lovely atmosphere we could have stayed all afternoon but we had lunch booked at a nearby restaurant. 

Just when we thought the market couldn't be any bigger we discovered all the food trucks out the back, a live band was playing and fires were on to keep warm. All the food smelt delicious. We didn't spend long in the area because we were starting to get hungry but next time I think we'd stay and eat.

I wanted to round off this post showing off all the goodies we brought home - most of it is now gone sadly but we will be back when they reopen. 

- Sour dough and the most incredible chocolate and orange loaf from Barnetts Bakery.

- Butchers eggs from Parkhill

Alan Chilli Product's Hot Chilli Jelly.

- Red wine & garlic salami from East Coast Cured .

- Pecan Cookies with a Rhubarb buttercream, raspberry jam and a ruby Chocolate Brownie in the middle (I was in heaven) from Tasty Buns Bakery.
