Welcome to Silchester Village Market
It’s on the first Saturday of the month from 10am to 12:30pm
“It is a vital part of Silchester’s community, a great place to catch up with neighbours whilst doing your weekend shopping”
Great News!! At the time of writing, it seems that, with sensible and appropriate precautions, we are able to open up Silchester Village Market, however it will be outdoors on the playing field. There will be plenty of space between stalls to practice social distancing, so you can view and buy your purchases safely. Plenty of car parking also.
COVID-19 has hit all businesses hard and many of our stallholders have had to change their business markedly to keep an income coming in. This has involved home deliveries, pre-arranged collections, posting goods etc. and I know that many of you have supported your favourite stalls during the last few months, for which they are most grateful.
The Market is a place to come for provisions and is a valuable source of income for these small businesses, perhaps even more important in these unprecedented times. If you can safely attend the Market on the 5th September and spend your money, this will really help keep these businesses going and keep our £s local.
Silchester Village Market is an array of stalls selling everything from artisan bread and home-made bakery items, fresh meat and fish, seasonal produce and plants, locally produced preserves, marmalades, jellies and chutneys, local free range eggs, cheese and mustards, sweet treats to local crafts and of course our very own Silchester Apple Juice!
Once a month Silchester Village Hall becomes a bustling market, all independent traders. Most are food or drink related and attend regularly, whereas the arts and crafts stalls rotate month by month. Check out the Market News to find out who will be attending our next market.
After all that shopping, ensure you leave plenty of time for some well-earned refreshments in our new ‘Market Café’ Freshly cooked bacon or sausage rolls, home-made cake and biscuits, washed down with a great cup of tea or coffee, coffee supplied by The Coffee House’.
Silchester Village Market is organised and run by local volunteers for the community. We hope you enjoy visiting Silchester Village Market as much as we enjoy organising it. Looking forward to seeing you on:
