The Walthamstow Farmers’ Market have agreed to have a Thuso house and garden plant stall on a Sunday on the Town Square.

So, as from Sunday September 30th from 10am to 2pm we will be up and running again following the termination of our pitch on the Arcade site. During the Autumn we’ll have monthly stalls – depending on the weather – and more frequently during next Spring and Summer. The Farmer’s Market Manager visited our “nursery” today for inspection and confirmation of their decision. In the photo are, left to right, Tania Collins: Thuso Treasurer, Cheryl Cohen, London Farmers’ Market Manager, and Felicity Weitzel: Thuso Secretary.
