The Pavilion Gardens Farmers' Market taking place tomorrow (Thursday, July 3), will be offering the usual fabulous range of locally reared meats, locally grown vegetables, fantastic cakes, breads, desserts, handmade chocolates, homemade preserves and locally produced cheese and eggs.

In addition, Parkwood Pottery will be demonstrating how to make pottery on the potter's wheel during the Buxton Farmer's Market. They will be demonstrating throughout the day and will make mugs and bowls.

Parkwood Pottery was established in 2007. It is a self-funding project within Parkwood Centre, a Derbyshire County Council centre for adults with learning disabilities. The group has an ethos of celebrating and developing the skills of their potters, both individually and as a growing business within the local community and The Peak District. They provide training in pottery skills and offer sheltered employment opportunities. Their pots are exhibited and sold in a number of outlets across Derbyshire and through their links with these; they aim to offer opportunities for the development of individual creativity, confidence, social skills and team working……. as well as really nice pots.

The Farmers Market takes place indoors in the Octagon Hall in Buxton's Pavilion Gardens between 9.30am and 2.30pm. Admission is free and there is easy access for the disabled.
