Due to the Covid-19 situation it is with great regret that we have to inform our customers that Solihull Council Has Said that
Sketts is extremely proud to be a Farmers Market pioneer and we continue to work closely with farmers and local authorities to ensure our ‘Farmers Markets’ remain authentic and true to their original ethos. Our farmers and producers have risen to the challenge – they offer customers their expert knowledge of the produce, how it’s grown, how it is best cooked and even recipes are on hand. Our producers offer friendly service and care deeply about quality, freshness, animal welfare and the local community. Come along to Solihull Farmers Market on the 1st Friday of every month and put the fun back into food shopping!

West Dean’s Chilli Fiesta which was one of the of the UK’s largest and most popular Chilli Events in the UK will no longer take place in future years.
It has been deemed by West Dean Collage that they want to take their events in a NEW DIRECTION. Below is a copy of the E-Mail sent to all traders on the 4th October 2019
As a valued Trader I wanted to let you know that we have decided to take our events in a new direction focused on arts and creativity, in line with what we do as a College and that Chilli Fiesta 2020 will now not take place. Instead, a new Summer Arts Series is being developed for 2020 to welcome visitors to a range of event days in the same glorious setting here at West Dean during August. We would like to thank you for your support of the Chilli Fiesta and all you have done to help make it a success over the last 24 years.
Best regards The West Dean Events Team
We like most of the other Chilli Producers are devastated by this news but who knows a NEW CHILLI FESTIVAL may take it place in the Chilli Calendar in the Midlands Area so keep WATCHING THIS SPACE
