Plenty of Yuletide joy to be had in Taunton this year


The famous Taunton Farmers' Market have proudly sponsored Taunton's Christmas Tree in front of the Market House, to help bring a little Christmas joy to the town this festive season

Multi award winning Taunton Farmers’ Market, a cooperative of local farmers, growers and producers who were named the South West’s Best Farmers’ Market by Taste of the West earlier this year, have proudly sponsored Taunton’s Christmas Tree in front of the Market House, to help bring a little Christmas joy to the County Town this festive season.

Graeme Wallace, Chairman of Taunton Farmers’ Market, told us: “We are extremely pleased to be able to show our thanks to fellow Tauntonians, by sponsoring the 2016 Christmas tree. This is our way of saying we are proud to be part of this town and to thank all who support us each and every Thursday throughout the year.”

Since 1999 Taunton Farmers’ Market have been bringing the best in quality local food and drink into Taunton High Street every Thursday from 9am-3pm. From freshly harvested vegetables, quality free range meat, poultry and eggs, Cheese and Chutneys, to mouth-watering patisserie, gluten free and Vegan food, even hot food served on the day, there is something delicious for everyone to enjoy at this Thursday market from 9am-3pm.

Graeme added; “It was important to us that we worked with a local grower to supply the tree to Taunton’s town centre, so we were delighted when Langford Lakes were able to work with us to supply a majestic 29 foot Nordman Fir, planted in 1996.”

Langford Lakes Christmas Tree Farm is a 40-acre farm that is located a mile outside of Langford Budville. The Hendy family has been growing and selling Christmas trees for more than 20 years. They offer a superb array of low needle drop trees from 3 to 30 feet in size.

Graeme also stated; “As a special addition this year, the tree has been adorned with beautiful stars all handmade by GoCreate and local children during TauntonLive for local charity Stand against Violence’s Constellation Project in 2015 to mark 10 years since the tragic death of Lloyd Fouracre.

“We are very grateful to Andrew Hopkins and Craig Stone from TDBC’s Taunton Visitor Centre, who have been instrumental in coordinating all three of our organisations to create this symbolic coming together of the community in one Christmas tree. We hope all of Taunton enjoys a Merry Christmas and a very Happy, Healthy and prosperous New Year.”

Taunton Farmers’ Market is open every Thursday from 9am until 3pm in Taunton High Street.
