Oswestry Super Market - or so it seemed on Saturday as the usual outdoor market at the Bailey Head was perkily enhanced by additional stalls and events celebrating Apple Day, varietal apples and all lovely things local. As usual, the lovely independent shops and venues joined in, with produce of appley goodness available around the town And Pomona, Goddess of Fruitfulness ensured that the grey clouds banking up stayed away for the duration.
Honeysuckle had a splendid stall with a mind boggling variety of apples from those ready to eat now to 'keepers' and all with the most charming names - from Adam Pearmain through to the lovely Winter banana Apple and merrily bouncing through the alphabet in between. To find out more about seasonal varietals go and visit Honeysuckle Wholefoods on Church Street.
The evening saw the event that was "Supermarket" centred around the Neil Phillips Concept piece, it was a mixture of films about local community groups promoting local food, including CROP, the Cambrian Railways Orchard Project, the Oswestry Food Festival, plus films from Attfield Theatre, brought together by KinoKulture. The highlight was Neil and Choir taking us through the 12 pieces that made up Supermarket - bringing to us the impact of retail globalisation in our daily lives.
A lively and enthusiastic audience appreciated the evening and deservedly applauded the talented individuals in the choir, Neil Phillips and the rather mad, glad and brilliant to know individuals who brought it all together.
