There have been developments with regards selling eco-friendly, refillables from Deddington Farmers’ Market. We’ve been in operation since 2020 and have a good base of local people now buying refillable detergents from us.

As of this March, The Rolling Oats will bringing their refill van to the market selling grains, seeds, oils, vinegar, coffee, tea and a range of SESI refillables as well as Faith in Nature toiletries.

This is great news as it makes the whole refills concept in Deddington more sustainable and broader in scope. DEN will be at the March market with refills (you can take your pick who to buy from) but after that we will sell off-market only.

We ask that you continue to show your support for refillable shopping by purchasing from Rolling Oats at the market. You can still get in touch with us via Facebook messenger if you need refills at other times.

Thanks for all your support at the market over the past 3 years and don’t forgot you can contact/join DEN to make suggestions, share ideas or volunteer with any existing projects or to run with your own ideas.

Message here or email and as we’ll still have a presence at the market you can also catch up with us there.

We spoke to Chris, founder of The Rolling Oats, to find out more about their business!
