Three-time winner of the Muddy Stiletto Award for the Best Farm Shop / Deli in Somerset & Dorset – the Trading Post Farm Shop, just off the A303 near South Petherton in Somerset, has upped its game for Christmas this year.

​Not letting anything get them down after the eventful past few months, The Trading Post are going full out on their festivities!
​In previous years, Kate and Andy, the owners of the Trading Post since 2017, have sat down with a pile of Christmas catalogues and a glass of whisky, carefully scrutinising every page to make those hard decisions –  which flavour of panettone should be stocked and which one simply won’t fit on the shelves, which boxes of chocolates, chutneys, biscuits and snacks from each range will be purchased and which ones will be left on hold for the following year. The catalogues were full of ticks, crosses and copious notes.
This year, their marker pen had an easier job as whole pages of beautiful products were excitedly circled. Every turn of the page brought something new and thrilling or joy from new packaging that perked up an existing line of products.
Then came the most difficult of all decisions – where the heck was it all going to fit? The shop, already bursting at the seams with amazing all year round produce, just wasn’t going to be big enough. 
​Rather than waiting for it all to arrive and hoping it would fit, the decision was made to purchase a marquee and create a Christmas Shop.​Early September saw the arrival of the structure and within 24 hours it was up and being filled. Over the following weeks many more beautiful products were added to the shelves. ​

​​The marquee has been an instant hit with everyone – there are even some chocolate ‘Bah Humbug’ lollies for those customers who aren’t quite in the festive spirit yet.
