What and Where:

The market is open every Saturday from 9am to midday, in the Village Hall, Henley Road, Sandford-on-Thames, OX4 4YN (that’s the main road from Littlemore through Sandford, next to the Four Pillars Hotel and the recreation ground).

Something for the children (so you can read the paper):

There are often activities for children but every week we have toy cars outside on the patio (thanks to Sandford’s fantastic Toddler Group) and lego and drawing stuff for children to use inside.

Who to contact:

The following people play key roles and are able to take orders, answer general enquiries and ensure you are included on our mailing list:

Steering Group Chair Abi is our steering group chair. She coordinates the guest stalls, keeps an eye out for sources of great local produce and does the weekly and monthly communicating. She is currently focussing her efforts in the week on the project to redevelop the village hall and to create a space for Talking Shop to run a community cafe and shop. If you would like to take a guest stall or have any ideas for produce that we should stock contact Abi on contacts.talkingshop@gmail.com. Abi is also available on 01865 774661.
Volunteer Co-ordinator Rebecca organises all the volunteer rotas.  We are always looking for new people to join the team. You can give as much or as little time as you like – on Saturdays to help run the market or with the jobs done in the week.  We have volunteers from 7 years old to in their 70s. It is a fantastic welcoming project to be involved with.If you’d like to join in email Rebecca on contacts.talkingshop@gmail.com.
