Kicking off a vibrant winter events calendar, the Royal William Yard marks the new winter home of the award-winning Good Food and Craft Market, with the chance of winning a bountiful hamper. Set to take up residence within the Yard’s historic Melville building, market goers are being offered a chance at winning an array of locally sourced, artisan treats from the popular market.
Held in the heart of the Royal William Yard on Sunday 3rd November, the market celebrates the coming festive season, whatever the weather. Running from 10 am – 3pm, visitors are invited to explore the ground floor of Melville, the Yard’s oldest building, to peruse the freshest local produce from the South West’s top suppliers and unique arts and crafts by skilled makers.
Held in what was once the central administration centre for the Royal Navy Victualling Board, market goers will be treated to not only a unique location, but also an impressive collection of stalls located both inside and outside of the iconic building. Boasting over 80 different traders, visitors can enjoy delicious street food and a diverse retail experience, discovering everything from handmade fine jewellery and bespoke wooden gifts, to freshly baked cakes and authentic Thai food.
To mark a relocation with rich heritage, the Yard is offering one lucky winner the chance to take home a hamper packed full of market delights. The hamper will include a Christmas pudding from Plymstock Pantry, Domea Favour chocolate, Beer from Bulletproof Brewing, bottles of Hudnott’s and silver jewellery, as well as a selection of free food and drink vouchers.
