The Sherwood Garden Centre in Walker Drive is deceptive by day – quaint and serene with their meticulously and beautifully maintained gardens, tea and cake, birds chirping in the tree’s overhead… you get the picture.
On the first Friday of every month the Food Shed takes over this little P.E. gem and transforms it into a smorgasbord of festivity; delicious treats, crafts, wine, beer and an abundance activity. Families and friends come together and enjoy the awesome atmosphere, live music and delicious food all produced and freshly prepared by up to 40 individual traders – all offering something very unique and yummy. A number of craft stalls to keep you busy browsing, as well as stalls offering kiddies food and craft activities. The Food Shed is also a community based project which offers traders a platform to exhibit their products and earn an additional (sometimes only) income. Charities are offered free stalls to raise money for their cause.
Jam-packed every month The Food Shed lures numbers of up to 2500 folks through the door. Fires and lanterns are lit in the evening and you can look forward to just chilling out, listening to the live entertainment, grabbing a bite to eat, spending time with friends and family, and enjoying the vibe in the beautiful gardens of the Sherwood Gardens nursery.
