1) Hylands House Farmers & Crafts Markets
Firstly, the Hylands House Farmers & Crafts Markets in Chelsmford, runs the first Sunday of every month from March to December.

Next, the wine tasting experience at West Side Vineyard. With top reviews on TripAdvisor and an endorsement by The Guardian, West Street Vineyard is a well-regarded local attraction. Based in the lovely market town of Coggshall, West Side Vineyard offers dining and wine tasting with an emphasis on English wines.
