November is here and the chill has landed. I suppose we cannot lament too much after such a mild run into the Winter season and whilst the coolness wont be enjoyed we can focus on winter foods, warm fires and cosy knits!
November tends to be a productive if lazy month and we are focusing on all that must be done for the end of the year. Here at PoppySeed we are in full flight and looking forward to the tasty weeks ahead!
Hamper season is in full mode and the elves will be packing baskets and boxes will festive joy and fayre from now until the 24th of December! Please pop in and have a look when time permits, there are some stunning new products which are simply divine. We will also be hosting a tasting day in PoppySeed Oranmore on Saturday, the 28th of November from 12-3pm and in PoppySeed Clarinbridge on Sunday, 29th November from 1.30pm – 4pm.

Best tips for November – start planning for your Christmas dining early. Pick out your menus and make the list, it takes away the pain and stress of the last minute frantic rush and will help you enjoy Christmas and all the fun that goes with it! We suggest buying your chutneys, crackers, biscuits and sweets ahead of time leaving cheeses, fruits, vegetables and meats until the last couple of days…
Embrace the rush,
The Poppy Girls
