If you enjoy whiling away a summers day in a beautiful country setting whilst being tempted by local artisan crafts and goods as well as delicious home made produce from one of the county’s most beautiful cafes, then on Saturday 11th July, Pythouse Kitchen Garden is the place to be.
This is the first summer fair to be held at Pythouse, but organiser Gail O’Reilly has plans to make it an annual event, showcasing the talents of locals who make and sell beautiful things.
Gail said: “I came up with the idea of holding a fair as I was helping a friend to sell hats at stalls around Somerset and was looking to find other outlets to market them. It struck me that Pythouse Kitchen Garden would be the perfect setting for a traditional summer fair for local people from Somerset, Dorset and Wiltshire to sell their wares. I put out some feelers to see what the level of interest would be and had a phenomenal response from vendors and virtually all stalls have already been taken.”
The list of sellers include Montes and Clarke, Sarah Swann Art, Bramley Products, Cools Farm, Celia Wood Knitting, Get it Rapt, Hunter Gather, Planked, Metal Menagerie, Glint and Glory and Blooming Plants offering products such as beachwear, hand crafted collections, summer hats, cushions, lampshades, baskets, artwork, candles, beauty products, hand knitted items and much more.
Mitch Earl, owner of Pythouse Kitchen Garden said: “The fair will be open from 10-6pm and people will have the opportunity to enjoy the lovely gardens, PYO fruit and flowers and of course the cafe will be serving its usual array of top quality food and drink throughout. With so much on offer here, it will really be a lovely way to spend a day.”
