Produce & Craft Market Stall

Produce & Craft Market Stall

On Saturday 28 August Transition Town Horncastle hired a stall in the Market Place as part of the ELDC local crafts and produce initiative.

Our idea was to get everyone in the area who had surplus produce in their gardens or allotments to bring it to us and we would sell it for them with a 10% donation going to Transition Town Horncastle.  We tried to contact as many people as possible but not as many responded as we had hoped.  However, we had a very productive stall selling, homemade jams and chutneys, plants, eggs, vegetables and fruit as well as handmade cards and shopping bags.  This proved very popular and we sold nearly all our produce and made money for all the people who had brought their produce to the stall to be sold as well as making some money for Transition Town’s funds.

The idea was warmly received by a lot of local people and we hope to do it again next year.
