We are getting in the festive spirit at The Sidings N21. This Sunday many of our traders are stocking lots of yummy foods to tempt you for the forthcoming season. Make sure you pick up your Christmas Tree from Trevor’s Trees and then put in your Christmas orders on gorgeous Christmas cakes with Maria’s Tea Cakes and get some great gift sets from Oil and Vinegar. Plus we have the amazing Graeme Airth filing the air with the sounds of Christmas!
Maria’s Tea Cakes
Maria will be bringing her tasty mince pies this weekend, Shortcrust pastry with a zest of orange, filled with home made mincemeat and topped with brown sugar and almonds. She will also have her Christmas cake on display, a rich fruit cake with orange and lemon zest, sherry and cherries. This will then be iced and decorated for the festive season. The mince pies and Christmas cakes can be ordered over the next few Sundays and then collected from The Sidings the Wednesday before Christmas. You can also order cake and sweet hampers – see Maria’s display hamper for a sample of the contents.
Oil and Vinegar
Oil and Vinegar have some great giftsets available at the moment. For example they have a trio of bottles, Pomegranite vinegar, mango pulp and olive oil with orange – this is just a sample, you can mix and match your own bottles to make your own individual flavour sensation or one for a loved one as a gift. They have some fantastic festive shaped dried past that has tomato, beetroot, spinach and basil to give it its flavour and gorgeous rich colours. For those secret Santa gifts why not pick up a bottle of your choosing and encase it in a wooden gift box….guaranteed to put a smile on anyones face!
One lady attended the market last Sunday and paid Mel at Oil and Vinegar a visit stating “Tomato Balsamic has changed my life!”
Have you tried the dried Brushetta mix? an amazingly rich flavoursome sauce created by adding just hot water and a drizzle of olive oil, perfect for pastas and pizza and with a variety of flavours to try you’ll find it hard to choose. Come along on Sunday and have a taster.
The Jay Curry Company
This is your last chance before Christmas to stock up on those delicious sauces from Jay Curries. Bring the taste of Sri Lanka into your own home with any one of their jars available. You can have a curry sauce with beef, chicken or vegetables or a variety of Sambol – Katta, Seeni or their award winning Coconut Sambol. Grab a sample taster this Sunday and make sure you grab enough sauce to last you through to the New Year!
Make sure you pick up your fresh Christmas tree at The Sidings this Sunday. Trevor has a wide selection which include the following:-
Traditional Nordmann Fir
Nordmann Fir Christmas trees possess a unique appearance from other Christmas trees with their thick symmetrical branches. It has dark green needles that are short and smooth, and are covered in a waxy cuticle which prevents water loss. The coating on this particular Fir gives it minimal fragrance, and is a great choice for individuals with allergies. Even in warmer climates Nordmann Fir Christmas trees have little or no needle loss throughout the holiday season.
Noble Fir Christmas trees boast lush blue-green needles on evenly spaced strong branches. The heavy defined branches of Noble Fir coupled with a rich green hue give them a lovely full and layered appearance. The rigid branches of Noble Fir hold up heavy ornaments such as traditional glass and heirloom ornaments beautifully. Noble Fir trees emit a distinctive yet mild fir scent that lights up a room.
Our premium quality Fraser Fir is a pyramid shaped tree with flat, shiny deep green needles. The foliage is dense and soft which makes it an ideal tree for all members of the family to decorate. The Fraser Fir is generally a narrow tree making it ideal where space is at a premium, and often has a wonderful Christmassy perfume.
and Brand New for this year, he has a Petite Noel Bleu which is a really pretty little potted tree.
Graeme is at The Sidings this Sunday blasting out the sounds of Christmas form his Sax. Come down and have a sing along to some of those well known Christmas tunes!
So be at The Sidings this Sunday and get into the Christmas spirit with us, grab some amazing gifts and produce to either feast upon now or save for the festivities……if you can!
