Also in your travels to various markets or village shops look out for hand baked cakes, biscuits, and other produce labelled Country Markets Ltd. which originally began trading in the 1930s as part of the Women’s Institute, or known as the WI. Now Country Markets trade separately from the WI.
All produce made by hand using great ingredients – take it home or back to your Cotswold Village Rooms to enjoy with mid-morning coffee, afternoon tea, or stash in a picnic hamper.
Check out venues and times of opening at Gloucestershire Country Markets.
