Have you visited our budding Wednesday market in the courtyard yet? At the moment, you’ll find the Store Cupboard with all their organic refills alongside Roots and Cycles with eco products and cleaning refills (all at really great prices). The big news is that soon they’ll be joined by Brockman’s farm, with organic and biodynamic vegetables from Kent and Europe as well as eggs. So skip the Saturday queues and help us make this a permanent fixture.
Laura (left) and Karen, who run the food market, visited Patrick Brockman last week (pic above). “We, got a fascinating tour of the two growing sites near Canterbury and got to meet all the hardworking staff that keep us supplied in top quality fruit and vegetables” said Karen.
