Last Orford Country Market of 2009

Hi Everyone

Thank you all for supporting the Country Market this year.

This week will be our last market until January 16th 2010 and we would like you to join us for our pre Christmas celebrations. We will have lots of your favourites and there will be FREE MULLED WINE AND MINCE PIES to help get the Christmas week off to a good start.

There are still raffle tickets available for the draw in aid of the East Anglian Air Ambulance Service and the draw will take place at 12 noon on Saturday.   Prizes are a selection of Country Market products including a hamper, so good luck!

We will have our usual beef lasagnes, quiches and much much more, soup, cakes, preserves, pickles and savouries and of course locally grown, freshly picked vegetables.

There will also be savoury nibbles to enjoy over the weekend or to have ready in the freezer when that expected or unexpected guest drops in for a festive drink.

Christmas goodies from the Crown at Snape will include chipolatas, bacon and sausage meat.

There will be hand made wreaths, and of course lovely Christmas cakes, mincemeat, mince pies and Christmas puddings

Soups will include Leek and Potato, Broccoli and Stilton, Roasted Butternut Squash, and Carrot.

Last minute or stocking gifts include fudge, coconut ice and other treats from the cake counter and, from the craft table, small zipped purses, scarves, knits, wool and accessories, jewellery, teacup candles, lavender bags and cushions.

Remember that all our food is freshly cooked so can be frozen.   Why not pick up some soup or savouries for the days following Christmas when you have either had enough of the leftovers or want something quick and easy.

Likewise from the baker why not buy an extra loaf for the freezer or maybe some festive buns. 

2009 has been a good year for the Orford Country Market and we all thank you all for your continuing support throughout the year. 

We wish you a Merry and Peaceful Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year and we look forward to seeing you all again in 2010.
