This morning ( 7th of December) Kate and I headed for the Saint Heliers Artisan Craft and Gourmet Food Market to set up her Folktree stall. I had the opportunity to have a chat with the other stall holders who were selling artisan products, and to take some photographs.
Many, including Folktree, will be back there again on December 21,a great opportunity to shop for last minute Christmas pressies.
