Sad news from the Farmers’ Market
Many of you have asked when Caroline and Richard from Home Farm Catering would be back at market. I was planning with Richard a staged return, as Caroline had recovered from heart surgery and doctors were hopeful they had found a drug that was working.
I’m sad to report that this did not happen and this week Caroline sadly passed away.
The whole market is stunned and saddened. Caroline was a great asset to the market, a passionate baker and a warm and graceful woman. We will all miss her.
We wanted to share this news with you all her loyal customers over the years, people who have loved her her wonderful creations: the pestos, biscuits, pates, quiches and fruit cakes, served with pride and fun by Richard.

“The playful quality of his earlier work may have gone but it has been replaced by something that is much deeper and more reflective. I would even call it poetic. Just as a haiku only contains three lines, it has the substance and resonance which are surely the test of all true art.”
