Launching November 2020, we’re thrilled to be able to invite some of the East Midland’s best food and drink traders to The Garage for our brand new Sunday Farmers Market.
The East Midlands is famous for Red Leicester and Stilton cheese, Linconshire sausages, Melton Mowbray pork pies, the Bakewell tart and Bramley apples, and it has always been a national hub of food and drink. Along with its charming market towns, it’s no wonder that the area has built up a reputation centred around local independent businesses, traditional methods and immense quality, and it’s these things that have created a legacy recognised all around the world.
We’re thrilled to be able to join that long-standing tradition this year, as we launch our brand new Farmers Market.
The Garage will be working with some of the areas highest quality food and drink producers and, throughout November, will be hosting over 25 small independent businesses every weekend.
With the focus being fresh produce, you can expect to find things like artisan breads, cheeses, patisseries, pies, eggs, dairy and meats as well as locally brewed beer, ciders, gins and wines. The pop-up plant shop will be returning too!
We’ll have barrista coffee, real ale and hot food all to takeaway. In line with government guidance we can’t open our pop-up cafe just yet, but we hope to be able to re-open this in December.
The Sunday Farmers Market will be open from 10am-2pm every Sunday throughout November to support people and businesses affected during England’s second lockdown.
Not only is a convenient and interesting place to shop for your weekly supplies, it’s also a place where people can go to escape from the difficulities of the national lockdown. The Garage has a wonderful atmopshere and, aside from the mental health benefits of seeing and speaking to people, it’s a lovely reminder that life can still go on in a safe and positive environment.
Local businesses are run by ordinary people who are infinitely passionate about what they do. They’re innovative, and they’re brave, but 2020 has meant that thousands of them are really struggling. Now more than ever we need to show them our support.
We’re staying open, so they can too.
