This fabulous Country Market has just moved from the scout hut in Wythall Park to Tidbury Green Village Hall, Dickens Heath Road, Solihull, West Midlands B90 1QW.
They are there every Saturday morning.
Country Markets is a non-profit organisation. It used to be part of the Women’s Institute until it was split off under a reorganisation about 20 years ago.
Although the participants in the market receive money for the sale of their produce no one makes a living out of it. It is more of a “paying hobby”. People participate because it is an enjoyable social event. It is a similar story for the customers. The Country Market is a meeting place for groups of friends where they can have a nice cup of coffee and a home-made cake together.
Anything which is cooked, grown or otherwise created at home can be sold at Country Markets. Nothing is bought in for resale. In this way they provide an outlet for the cottage industries of yesteryear.
As well as being a great place to visit, shop and have a cuppa and a chat, go, they are always in need more producers.
