Abbey Leys Community Christmas Farmers’ Market in High Legh near Lymm in Cheshire will take place from 1000 till 1300.  No need to order from me in advance if you are going to the market,  but you can if you wish. Please note that not all items I am baking will be on sale at Abbey Leys (as producers try not to compete with one another).  Next market at Abbey Leys is Sunday 7 February.

On Sun 20 Dec collections are possible from my home between 1400 and 1600.  It’s essential to order in advance. If you haven’t been here before I will send you directions when I confirm your order.

If you live in or very close to Chester you can request a home delivery (no charge). If you’re willing to volunteer to help out with deliveries please let me know.

My 11 months-matured, nut-free, hand-made-with-love Christmas Cakes have been on the brandy for a while…  I sell them by finished weight at £15 per kg including a cardboard gift box.   I have a few cakes that weigh 900g – 1kg and a couple that weight about 1.5kg. You can choose a plain cake to decorate yourself or a cake finished with your choice of fruits and nuts, as in the picture.   50p off  if you don’t need a gift box and supply your own tin.
