    Cool Wrexham Christmas village

    Just back from the (superb) Wrexham Christmas Village market, see here: https://www.christmasmarkets.com/chr...stmas-village/

    What a marvellous experience, with some lovely stalls full of all sorts of locally handcrafted goods and food/drink. Picked up some nice decs for the tree, some foodie bits and I got a couple of nice bottles of fizz from English wine producer Morville St Gregory, in Shropshire: http://www.morville-st-gregory.co.uk/about-us/

    Highly recommended (as they were doing tastings), and every bit as good as 'proper Champagne', but half the price!

    Anyway, some pics of the market:













    Last one was taken inside the historic 16th century St Giles church: https://stgilesparishchurchwrexham.org.uk/joomla30/

    Great fun, and makes you feel really Christmassy!

    Used to do a market here now and then. Up at the town square.
    Farmers, butchers bakers etc. Some nice produce, but I never heard when it was on mostly

    Yeah most towns had regular markets back in the day. We're lucky that Wrexham has a permanent indoor Butcher's market (and fresh veg and stuff is sold, too): https://www.wrexham.gov.uk/english/b...alls/index.htm







    It's nice having a wander round and buying stuff, when you have time, which you know is local produce and top quality, rather than using supermarkets

    One hell of a drive from Scotland.

    Bristol has quite a good farmers market, as well as a permanent indoor market, but I always seem to end up in one of the pubs next door.

    We have a market in Saffron Walden every Tuesday and Saturday. I reckon, 9 times out of 10, it's chucking it down on a Tuesday or Saturday - like today. I feel for the market people.
