William Morris described Bibury as the most beautiful village in England, and this row of picturesque 17th century cottages called Arlington Row definitely lived up to expectations.
Here are a few of photos I took today
On our first morning of our house swap near Stroud, we needed to buy some groceries, and combined a visit to the supermarket for the basics with a visit to Stroud’s famous Farmers Market.
I was so impressed with the quality, variety and freshness of the produce on dozens of stalls. Many provided free samples, so it was a tasty visit too!
As well as many food stalls, there were local crafts including wood carving, jeweller, wool, and plants.
Some street musicians added to the festive atmosphere, and the local shops seemed to be benefiting from the added crowds too. There are lots of independant retailers in the town too, and definitely an artistic vibe to the town.
And yes ….. I found a bead shop too!
The Stroud Farmers Market is one of the largest and most popular markets in the UK. If you are in the Cotswolds on a Saturday morning try to visit.
More from the Cotswolds coming soon.
Do you have a farmers market in your area?
