Staying in Hermon, their bi-monthly produce market will take place on Wednesday 11th and it’s yet another example of what a fantastic and vibrant community can enjoy together. Apart from produce and baked goods, there’s also freshly-cooked food and drinks so this is not just shopping – it’s socialising, as you can sit and catch up with friends over a meal. Every meet also involves a talk, demonstration or workshop so whether it’s on your doorstep or a little further away, make this part of your calendar and break up the midweek with a trip to this fantastic community centre.
