Bexley Country Market

I am a member of the U3A and also the Secretary of Bexley Country Market. Country Markets have reached their centenary and Bexley Country Market will be celebrating this on Friday 18th October 2019 from 9.30 am to 12 pm at Freemantle Hall.

We are trying very hard at the Market to bring in new customers and producers and this may be an opportunity of letting U3A members know what is going on in the Bexley Borough area. The Market is open every Friday from 9.30 am to 12 pm and has a variety of crafts, products and food. Refreshments can be purchased and enjoyed in a seating area and each week we find that people use this opportunity to meet up and socialise.

What you will find there:
Genuinely home-cooked sweet and savoury food, Freshly baked bread, Unique marmalades, jams, chutney and honey. Exquisitely handcrafted goods made to suit your taste and pocket.
Locally grown seasonal fresh vegetables, plants and Kentish eggs. Hot and cold refreshments, cake, biscuits and toast to enjoy at the Market.

Fresh meat, Handmade cards, Poetry, Toiletries and room fragrance, Jewellery, Knitwear, Glass products, Clock repairs, Second-hand books.

With kind regards.

HOST is an organisation whose mission is to generate intercultural exchange and friendship through offering hospitality to international students and very many of them are very keen to experience Christmas as celebrated by us here in the UK. Their alternative may well be a lonely stay in empty halls of residence far from home and family. For this purpose, we are always seeking new hosts.
