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.

On offer will be ¬†fresh sourdough bread (including revolution rye and cotteridge sourdough), fresh homemade stollen and ‘flowerpot’ pannetone, and the chance to buy Loaf gift vouchers for your loved ones, and sign up to subscribe to Loaf community bakery. If you’ve read this and come along, please come and introduce yourself too. Tom.
