Fabulously Fruity has been out on the road in 2014, and one of our regular haunts is at the Humber Bridge farmer’s markets. We had heard great things about the market and its friendly, vibrant atmosphere so decided to give it a go in March. It turned out that all the good reviews we had had were true! Since our first visit, we have been virtually every month. It is fantastic catching up with regular customers, as well as introducing new ones to our fabulous fruit wine.
Our latest visit was on Sunday 2 November and after a rather soggy start, the sun came out and the crowds arrived. The word had obviously got round that Christmas is now merely 8 weeks away and everyone seemed to have started their Christmas shopping.
In addition to our usual range of 750ml bottles in our 6 standard wines, and our 6 limited edition wines, we introduced our new gift pack range consisting of a three wine presentation pack (featuring blackcurrant, gooseberry and strawberry wines) for a bargain £15, and our larger six wine pack (containing bramble, raspberry, strawberry, gooseberry, blackcurrant and red gooseberry) priced at £25. Each gift pack is wrapped and decorated to make a unique Christmas present.
Both our standard and limited edition bottles of fruit wine flew off our stall with lots of new customers stopping to taste our range before choosing which they favoured to buy. It is also nice to see returning customers coming back to buy more of their favourite fruit wine, blackcurrant seems to be a particular favourite!
We are looking forward to the next 2 Humber Bridge farmers markets in December. These will take place on Sunday 7 December and Sunday 21 December 2014, and we plan on showcasing our entire range (with tasting of all varieties available) together with our gift packs selections.
