MK Country Market
“Not only is it a great place to pick up items for you and your family, it’s the perfect gift shop for that unique thoughtful present.”
This fabulous country market was established in 1982 by the Women’s Institute (who celebrate their 100th anniversary this year), although Country Markets Ltd has been a separate national organisation since the 1990s.
MK Country Market is a co-operative group of 30 local producers offering a friendly and sociable indoor market at The Old Bath House in Wolverton, meeting regularly on Fridays 9am-1pm. They sell the products of local home-based cooks, crafters and growers. Membership to join and bring your own wares is just 5p!
You can pick up delicious freshly made cakes, savouries, eggs and preserves from Carol, Diane, Elaine, Phil and Wendy; seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables from Em (but make sure you come early!); beautiful beadwork, embroidered book covers and patchwork bags from Shelley; pottery and candles from Trudy; pretty children’s dresses, accessories and bunting from Ann; unique card creations by Mary; jewellery from Chris and Rowena, who also makes patchwork quilts; and all kinds of knitted goods: both knitted items and patchwork quilts can be made to order. You can also order gift hampers containing any products you want included.
Not only is it a great place to pick up items for you and your family, it’s the perfect gift shop for that unique thoughtful present.
There is even a café so it’s a lovely place to go for a leisurely breakfast or a pot of tea and slice of cake, with friends, new and old. There is even a designated area for children to be creative and entertain themselves, whilst you relax and shop.
If you ever miss the Country Markets on a Friday, they have a stall at the Wolverton Farmers Market on the 1st and 3rd Saturday mornings of every month.
