On Saturday 18th May,  the Bournville Farmers’ Market  celebrates its 1st Birthday! Located at Rowheath Pavilion on Heath Road, the market is open from 9am-2pm selling fresh produce right on your doorstep.

From market favourites such as bread, cheese, pies, vegetables and cakes to some special treats ranging from home-made chocolates, South East Asian cuisine and spicy Caribbean sauces the market represents a diverse range of produce.

Phil and Lynn from Hibiscus Grove supply their delicious samosas, pakoras and other South East Asian delights on a monthly basis. They said, “Rowheath Farmers Market is a joy to attend, with its good footfall of enthusiastic and supportive customers and wonderful diversity of stalls. The organisers are efficient, helpful and welcoming. They work hard at publicising the event and often have more than one function on at the same time which is great for awareness of the market. Congratulations on your First Anniversary, we are very proud to have been a part of the market from the beginning and have seen it grow from strength to strength. Long may this continue!!!!”.

Each month the market grows with new and exciting stalls joining the mix. Last month, new producers Lucky 13 Bakehouse, an artisan bakery supplying mouthwatering speciality breads came on board. Amy and Neil from Lucky 13 said, “Bournville Farmers’ Market was incredible exposure for our bakery, it was the first market we had attended in over 12 months and our speciality bread went down a storm with Rowheath ‘s  friendly visitors. Among some other amazing local producers in the beautiful setting of the Pavilion, we were delighted to quickly sell out. We will definitely be coming back!”.

With a children’s playground and beautiful lake and park, Bournville Farmers’ Market offers much more than just a shopping trip. There is a lovely friendly café serving hot drinks and sandwiches  allowing you to sit and enjoy the delicious market food in this gorgeous setting. Andy from Beans and Leaves says. “The market is a good meeting point for the local community with friendly and interesting stallholders selling an excellent range of locally produced products”.

Next market is Saturday 18th May, then every 3rd Saturday of the month. The market is open from 9am-2pm and there is free parking.

Date for the dairy; Monday 27th May is our Bank Holiday Family Fun Day with a farmers’ market, vintage and craft fayre, patio jumble sale, giant inflatable’s, children’s activities and more!
