Sunday Chasewater Craft & Farmers Market cancelled – but Whittington on this morning


Sadly no more – Chasewater Craft and Farmer’s Market has come to an end.

Just a quick heads up that this Sunday (7th September 2014), there was to be a Craft and Farmers Markets staged at Chasewater, which has been cancelled, with the organisers Bohemian Bunty pulling out of the monthly event.

They posted on the market’s Facebook page on August 31st:

We have cancelled the craft and farmers market for next Sunday, thank you all for your support this season.

Don’t forget Staffordshire county council will be running the market for next year so any traders interested please contact Jane Lees at Chasewater Innovation centre for details.

This comes following a previous statement on August 4th:

Well, the thinking cap went back on today as in 5 weeks The Bohemian Bunty will hold the last ever craft and farmers market. We are off to pastures new and have numerous locations to approach and consider for 2015. Our logo/brand will come with us however the name will change. Chasewater will still continue to have a market that will be managed by the innovation centre and I’m sure they will succeed on every level.

It’s sad, but to me, the event was never a farmer’s market and shouldn’t have been presented as such – as a craft market it worked reasonably well. It’ll be interesting to see what Staffordshire County Council do with it next year.

In the meantime Chris Hill, long time friend of the blog and freind of a trader at the Chasewater event has asked me to point out that J. Marie Jewellery be at Whittington Country and Craft Fair today (Saturday, 6th September 2014) from 10:00am until 4:30pm:
