Moseley Farmers’ Christmas Market

This month, Moseley Farmers’ Market will take place the Saturday before Christmas, on December 19th, and will finish an hour later than usual, closing at 3pm.

To protect everyone, please follow these simple guidelines at the market:

  • Wear a mask, keep your distance and use hand sanitiser available on the stalls.
  • Register the QR code on your mobile for the NHS Covid app so it knows that you’ve been. The QR code is at the main entrance of the market.
  • Respect other people in wanting you to keep your distance.

The market will be in the centre of Moseley Village and will have as many usual stalls as possible selling a huge range of produce to cater for everyone’s needs; whether it be fruit and vegetables, cheeses and wine, pies, beer or samosas. Everything available is guaranteed to be local and the produce is reared, grown or processed by the stallholders: it’s a certified real Farmers’ Market. There will also be stallholders selling non-local food for the benefit of the community such as olives, fish, unusual cheeses and coffee beans & tea leaves. These are placed on the edge of the Farmers Market area.

Foodshare Reopening for Takeaway

Foodshare is a national not-for-profit, volunteer-powered charity which connects growers (schools, allotments, community and kitchen gardeners) with local charities.

A small team from the  Wesleyan Holiness Church on Cromer Road cook a delectable meal for anyone who wants to come. It’s somewhere that offers welcome, hospitality and a feeling of community to whoever needs it.

Come along to Wesleyan Holiness Church Moseley, on Wednesdays between 11am – 1pm, to pick up & enjoy a delicious cup of homemade soup, burgers, sausages, or rolls.

The service has sadly been closed since the March lockdown but has reopened, for takeaway only, on Wednesdays until it’s safe to reopen the church. The food is free but contributions, however small, are welcomed.

See the Foodshare Takeaway flyer here for more information.
