Stirchley Community Market is Born!

Stirchley Community Market LogoLoaf, Stirchley Happenings, South Birmingham Food Co-op and Birmingham Town Centre Partnerships are proud to bring you Stirchley’s first ever community market in the summer of 2010.

Stirchley Community Market, which launches on Tuesday the 27th July with it’s first market outside Stirchley United Working Mens Club on the Pershore Road from 4-8pm, will feature stalls selling wholefoods, bread, hot curry, wood-fired pizza, artisan preserves, cupcakes, local fruit and vegetables, and local arts and crafts. The market will give the local community, as well as commuters on their way home from work, an opportunity to find out what Stirchley has to offer, meet some excellent food producers and craft makers from within Birmingham, and pick up some tasty groceries for their weekly shop.

Loaf will be there selling wood-fired pizza’s straight out of our mobile pizza oven, and artisan bread.

The market has a dedicated wordpress blog, which will be updated with stall holder info and other details as the first market approaches – check it out at

Get down to THE SoURCE Spring Fair

THE SoURCE Spring Fair is a gathering of 20 eco and creative stalls at the Moseley Exchange on farmer’s market day Saturday May 22nd. The pick of the area’s local producers of fine foods, cupcakes, jewellery, arts, crafts, vintage and much more will be there, encouraging people to buy local, buy ethical, and buy original. Entry is free and there will be food and refreshments. We’re teaching a sourdough baking class that day, so sadly haven’t got a stall, however we’re hoping to pop up at the end of the afternoon to check out what’s happening.

The fair runs 10am-4pm and for more details or stallholder enquires call Louise on 07808 829390. Click on the flyer below to download the pdf, and spread the word around to support this great event.
