We nearly didn't go to the Town's Christmas market, as when we woke up it was snowing and looked very icy. However, the weather improved very slightly, so off we went. The market is held - where else? - in the Market place, and spills out to the side streets. They had kept the various types of stalls together, so the food was nearly all in one street, the crockery and china stalls together, etc.
The Christmas tree lights were on, but didn't show up on my photograph its a big dark because it WAS a bit dark out there!
All the food stalls looked lovely. This scone stall...........
.........offered little nibbles to test them! In fact, all the foodie stalls offered tasters, and we had good time sampling various sausages. I did buy some in the end, though. ~Free range Gloucester Old Spot Pigs, hand-made on the farm. Should be good!
There were some strange things there, though.
But if it was too cold for you, then you could warm up with mulled wine, or spiced cider, all gently steaming away in big tubs.
It was a very successful market, and I enjoyed it enormously.
