A Sunday lesson in local

As a busy, working Mum who spends an inordinate amount of time on the sides of sporting pitches, getting to a Sunday market is a rare treat. This Sunday, during the Easter holidays, afforded me a brief but rich visit to Leek for their monthly Sunday Supplement market. As always the market was packed full of live music, happy faces & top quality market stalls offering everything from hand made glassware to the most delicious handmade sourdough. To add to this atmosphere, many of the stunning, independent shops are also open including Simply Staffordshire Members, Pronto Deli, White Hart Tearooms, Bibelot, Aphrodite & TOAST.

Among the market stalls were some of our handpicked Simply Staffordshire Members…flying the flag for the best of Staffordshire handmade as well as some amazing businesses that we would love to invite to our award winning gang! It was great to see Sarah Myatt http://healthsavy.com/product/celebrex/ Glass selling some of the very first of here garden birds range as well as my favourite love hearts.
