Hoylake Village Life, Hoylake Community Centre and Transition Town West Kirby have been working in partnership (and with permission from Birkenhead Market) to arrange this forthcoming Farmers’ Market-style event in Hoylake. You’ll be able to meet local producers directly selling the food that they produce.
Throughout the event there will be cookery demonstrations from Colin Parry, chef at La Paz, West Kirby, using local seasonal produce.
The organisers have had huge interest from local producers, with an amazing range of food available (*see below). There will also be tea, coffee, freshly cooked bacon sandwiches (using local, rare breed pork, of course) and hot scones coming straight out of the oven. A Sunday brunch not to be missed.
As the event falls on Halloween you possibly might just be able to try a slice of pumpkin pie!
