Festive food (and drink) at Orton Christmas Market
There’ll be a seasonal flavour to Orton on Saturday 14 December as the annual Christmas Farmers’ Market takes over the village and gets visitors into a festive mood.
As well as the best of local meat, poultry, fish, vegetables, cheese and preserves, there will be Christmas cakes, puddings, speciality breads and other baked treats for all tastes, from the traditional to the more unusual with Outreamer, Country Fare and Broughton Village Bakery all bringing their best to the Market.
Local farmer, Lanty Wharton will be selling Christmas trees and wreaths and there will also be a selection of local Christmas drinks on sale. These include wonderful fruit wines – including the seasonal Spiced Beetroot - from High Cup Winery near Appleby-in-Westmorland and Spiced Apple cordial from Kendal Cordials.
“December’s Orton Farmers’ Market always feels really Christmassy,” says Market Co-ordinator, Leanne Duerden, “and there are plenty of opportunities to shop for food, pick up locally-crafted gifts and choose a tree and decorations. We can even take orders via the website (www.ortonfarmers.co.uk) in advance and have them ready for collection at the Market.”
“We’ll have music from Appleby Silver Band on the market square adding to the atmosphere with traditional Christmas music, a visit from Santa and there will be bell ringers in the church tower and carol singers from Orton C of E Primary School up in church too.”
