10/06/13: Farmer's Market - Saturday Haul

Near to where I live, a farmers market runs each Saturday.  Last Saturday, with all the wonderful sunshine we were having, I nipped in to have a look around... and couldn't resist picking up a few things.


Bentley Organic Hand Sanitizer - £3.22 - I've been looking for something like this since I 'turned green' as I was a little bit addicted to my previous alcohol full hand sanitizers.  I like to have some in my bag just as an added extra for clean hands.  It's a foam dispenser that produces just enough for one application.  This and the Aloe Vera I actually bought from the local independent health care shop that is situation just around the corner from the market.

Aloe Pura Aloe Vera Gel - £5.42 - I first bought this quite a long time ago, but returned to it recently to see how it would be under mineral foundation.  It is quite tightening on the skin which some people may not like, but it's an excellent simple body lotion.  You can get it with added extras like Tea Tree but I like the plain version.

Herbylicious Rose Gift Box - £10 (£18) - Having bought some soaps the previous week, we decided to pick this up as a future present for family.  It contains a Ritzy Rose handmade soap, Rose Shea Souffle, Organic Flannel, a special Lavender and Geranium soap and some butter ball bath melts.  

Cotswold Honey - £5.50 - This honey is amazing.  I don't usually eat the stuff but I couldn't resist trying a sample at the stall.  It's been whipped and is so thick and sweet.  I have been tempted to eat some more now that it's sitting in the cupboard.


Greens of Glastonbury - £3.75 - Two vegetarian cheeses, Double Gloucester and an unpasteurised one.  Very strong and very creamy.  I'm currently addicted to Jarlsberg, but these make a nice change.

Womens refuge - £1.00 - This stall was opposite the soaps, and had these lovely cards that had been designed by some of the children of women in the refuge.  I snapped up a couple for future birthdays.  
Herbylicious solid perfumes - £1.00 (£4.50) - After trying the Balm Balm perfumes, I thought I'd give sold perfumes another go.  I first tried the Lush ones many moons ago, but these are a bit bigger and have a lot of gorgeous cocoa butter in them.  At bargain prices, I couldn't resist picking up two.

Do you have any favourite local markets or independent stalls/shops?
