Malmesbury Artisan & Farmers Market is a hoot

By Anita Jaynes on 5 October, 2015

Visitors to last Friday’s popular weekly Artisan & Farmers Market in Malmesbury had a hoot when an extra special visitor flew in. Daisy, a European Eagle Owl from the Heathrow Owl Rescue Centre drew a crowd and really seemed to enjoy the attention.  The bustling market is proving to be a popular attraction for the town, with a sizzling all day BBQ on site, organic locally grown fruit and vegetables, artisan breads, preserves, cheeses, pies, sweets and unique gifts.

The Market’s organisers were thrilled Daisy was such a hit and are planning more fun for half term week.

Visit the Malmesbury Artisan & Farmers Market every Friday from 9am to 3pm at the Market Cross, just up the Abbey steps from Station Road Car Park with two hours FREE parking.
