SPECIAL FARMERS MARKET: Master Chef winner of 2006, Peter Bayless, came along to the market on Saturday. Crowds gathered to watch Peter demonstrate his skills using produce from around the market. Even herbs from the plant stall. Peter’s wife is Greek and on the day, given its current relevance, paid homage to Greece and cooked up some lovely dishes and free tasters to distribute amongst his audience. Head of Wealden District Council, Barbie Dashwood-Morris, came along with the Wealden Regeneration Team who support Wealden’s markets and provide all sorts of advice and assistance.

I popped my head round the door for a sneaky unofficial preview and was amazed at the beautiful natural wood carvings and creations that were on show there. If you love wood, I would certainly recommend it and there are beautiful paintings other art and photography too.
