It’s beginning to look a lot like a conscious Christmas

Slow Living Events sets to get shoppers ready for Christmas with its third Conscious Market at The Barn at Barra.

Taking place on Sunday 28 November, the market puts wellbeing at the forefront hosting a variety of small, local businesses who have the same ethos to help shoppers be mindful and conscious for themselves and the environment. Shoppers can stash up on their Christmas gifts and supplies with 40 stallholders from across the region along with a fully stocked bar to enjoy featuring mulled wine.

Two festive workshops are set to take place across the day, one of which is with Bad Gal Boocha travels up from Fife to host a Christmas Kombucha making workshop. Inspired by nature, in 2019 owner Heather set out to create her very own Kombucha business selling her distinctive fermented drink made from sweetened tea, bacteria and yeasts whilst keeping her impact on the environment as low as possible. With an extensive range growing in popularity, Heather’s two-hour long workshop will provide attendees with the supplies and steps to make their very own mulled Kombucha.

Entry is £50 which includes free entry to the Conscious Market, workshop materials and Slow Living Events Goodie bag. Attendees will also receive a complimentary mulled wine or hot chocolate and a bake from the Vegan Bay Baker. Places can be booked on the event page.

Offering a chance to tick more Christmas supplies off the list, the event will host a charity raffle filled with over 25 prizes donated by the stallholders at the event. The raffle is in aid of the Aberdeen Cyrenians which sets out to support the most vulnerable people in Aberdeen, Scotland and other countries facing crisis, trauma, addiction, homelessness and isolation.

The Conscious Market takes place from 10-4pm and entry costs £2 which is paid on the door. Find out more about Slow Living Events on its website.
