Oh what a lovely Eco Market!

The rain came down but that couldn't dampen the enthusiasm of the hundreds of Eco Handmade Warriors who descended on St Augustine's on Saturday to get in some pre Christmas ethical shopping.

Many thanks must go to all the stall-holders who braved the conditions outside to still bring their special brand of eco loving to their fans.

Heartfelt thanks to our community of volunteers inside and out and to our fabulous hard working market and workshop crews.

In particular, one of the busiest stands outside on the day was our friends at Reverse Garbage who soldiered on despite the deluge much to the delight of many customers who visited their site - many of whom had made the trip in especially to purchase the special handpicked range of  RG supplies.
