First Market by the Green a big success for villagers
A team of creative minds from Banburyshire opened the doors to the first ever Market by the Green in Adderbury on Saturday.
The launch of the market just in time for Mother’s Day was a great success with villagers spending a day in each others’ company celebrating local arts, crafts and produce at The Institute in Adderbury.
With the majority of stalls belonging to village-based residents and businesses, the market showcased a wide range of local talent, such as that of artist James Vinciguerra.
Other items on sale included everything from handmade cards, individually designed jewellery, crochet gifts and vintage clothing to home decorations, shoes, books and flowers.
And visitors did not have to go hungry either as refreshments were on offer from a vintage-themed coffee shop where people could relax and enjoy a cup of tea and a slice of homemade cake while perusing the stalls.
Co-organiser Sarah Demirtges, of Flower Seller in Adderbury, said: “It was amazing! So many people came along, many more than we anticipated, we had lots of fun and it was just a great day.
“It all came together. It was a really lovely community spirit and we’re really looking forward to the next one in May.”
From now on, Market by the Green will be held bi-monthly with the next one taking place between 10am and 1pm on Saturday, May 11. For more information, visit www.facebook.com/MarketByTheGreenAdderbury
