CRAFTERS from Somerset are being invited this month (June, 2017) to sign up for a fayre being held at a farm shop in the county in November.
The craft fayre will be part of Rumwell Farm Shop's Tasting Weekend, which will take place on Saturday, November 25 and Sunday, November 26.
Anne Mitchell, Joint Owner of the farm shop, which is located on the A38 between Taunton and Wellington, said: "We thought it would be a great idea to host a craft fayre in the run up to Christmas to allow local crafters to show off their handiwork and give shoppers a chance to find that extra special Christmas gift.
"The craft fayre will be part of our Tasting Weekend. We normally hold an annual Tasting Day at the end of November but due to its popularity we have decided to host it over two days.
"A table for one day will cost £15 and for both days £25. If you are interested in attending we would love to meet you and see your products, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment.
"We have already had a good response from crafters in the area and people will be able to see a variety of goods."
Rumwell Farm Shop is an independent, family-run, award-winning business owned by the Mitchell family. It was originally a potato store, when David and Anne Mitchell began selling their potatoes and free range eggs at the gate.
Due to customer demand, the range of products soon increased and the farm shop grew into the place it is today. David and Anne's sons, James and Jack, are now also involved in the business.
Rumwell Farm Shop has a traditional butchery counter selling free range pork and Aberdeen Angus beef reared just four miles away on the family farm. There is also a delicatessen, bakery, jam kitchen and food hall.
Home grown potatoes are also still available, when in season, as well as everything from fruit, vegetables and groceries to plants, flowers, gifts and cards.
The Rumwell Cafe, which opened in May 2015, can seat approximately 80 people. The food prepared in the cafe kitchen is sourced from the farm shop, the Mitchell family farm and regional suppliers.
Families are welcome to the cafe and there is a menu especially for children. The cafe also serves afternoon teas, carvery on a Sunday and is licensed to sell alcoholic beverages.
