Several stalls had closed shop by the time I had scoffed down a very late lunch of a delicious lamb burger (from a stall I stupidly neglected to record the name of) but under the arches of the 17th century Market Hall, were Blue Basil Brownies, a curing company, Pie and Mighty Pie, cheese stalls, the Cotswold Cider Company, Annie’s Market Garden an Award winning producer of Rare Breed meats, Pies, Pasties and more than one highly tempting cake stands. Oh how I wish I had brought a slice of that Tunisian Orange and Almond Cake! The lovely couple, whose names I neglected to ask, behind the Pie and Mighty Pies stall very generously gave me a pie to take home… and damn delicious it was too!
