Sunday saw the third Summer Market at the gorgeous Roundhouse in Derby. The event annually brings together an array of handpicked food producers, makers, shop owners, farm shops and so much more. Each year I am even more amazed with what can be found in and around Derbyshire.
This year the sun not only had his hat on, he was waving a flag…it was a glorious day which mean the Plaza was full of shoppers enjoying wood fired pizzas, bbq, pimms, ice cream, the list goes on! Indoors was full to bursting with tempting gifts and delicious food… and not forgetting the ever so popular Vintage Tea Room presented by Darby and Joan.
A big thank you to all the exhibitors for displaying so creatively giving visitors a real feast for the eyes. Thank you also to if you visited the event, I hope you have a super time and look forward to welcoming you to the Christmas Market back at The Roundhouse later this year (16/17 Nov).
Below are a selection of photographs I’ve snapped during the day. It’s always difficult to find time to take photographs, but I think I’ve managed to take a selection giving the overall feel of the event…if you didn’t make it along, take a look at what you missed!

Over the weekend I was exhibiting at the Derbyshire Food & Drink Fair at Elvaston Castle. I had a great time promoting Fabulous Places and meeting up with familiar faces and introducing my business to lots of new people. The Handpicked Guide to Derbyshire proved very popular with over 1,600 copies being snapped up!
Thank you to everyone who visited the stand, I hope you enjoy the Handpicked Guide and I look forward to seeing you at the Summer Market at The Roundhouse on 7th July!
Below are some photos I took during the weekend.

The Summer Market will be back at The Roundhouse in Derby for a 4th year with more handpicked food and gift exhibitors, the popular vintage tea room, hot food and refreshments on the plaza and fun for little ones.
There’s lots more to do before the plan is finalised ready for print, but already I’m very excited for this year’s Summer Market!
