[C]umbria’s newest artisan market, Gifted Eden, is joining forces with a Penrith favourite this Saturday (16 July 2016) to bring more than 50 stalls to the centre of the town.
The monthly market is based in St Andrew’s Churchyard, a two minute walk from Market Square in the town centre. This month Gifted Eden will be taking part in the Penrith on a Plate festivities with stallholders offering free tasters of their all Cumbrian produce and, for the non-foodies, lots of unique, hand crafted gifts from across the county. Catherine and Chris from Carwinley Preserves will be offering tasters of their lemon curd, used by the queen of baking herself, Mary Berry, while the boys from Lakeland Mues will have lots of their fruity, nutty, Cumbrian muesli for everyone to try.
Peter Ward from Penrith Partnership, which organises Penrith on a Plate said: “Gifted Eden is very much the heart of this year’s Penrith on a Plate, offering festival-goers the chance to sample and buy a superb selection of local artisan products.
“With the additional food and craft producers we’ve attracted for the day, visitors will be able to enjoy more than 50 stalls along with activities and entertainment, making for a bumper free day out for foodies and families alike.”
This is the first of many collaborations for Gifted Eden with more planned for events running throughout the year. The market is held on the third Saturday of every month from 9am – 4pm. For more info visit the website: www.giftededen.co.uk
