Welcome to UK Fudge Co
From the Fudge Chef updated 17th December 2020
Online shop now CLOSED until Feb 1st 2021
With just a few short days to go until Christmas, we have taken the step of closing our online shop for postal orders. It may seem mad, but we do not want to be taking orders when we can't get them you you in time for Christmas, and the disapointment that would bring. We will still be taking local orders for hand delivery up until Tuesday 22nd.
We will be re-opening the online shop when we return to trade in February 2021. In the meantime, we have a few markets left for you to come and get your last minute Christmas Fudge boxes:
Friday 18th Stratford Upon Avon (Rother St 9:00-4:00)
Friday 18th Cheltenham Farmers market - (Long Gardens 9:00-2:00)
Saturday 19th Botley Farmers market (9:00-3:00)
Saturday 19th Cirencester Farmers market (9:00-2:30)
Sunday 20th Cirencester Gift market (10:00-4:00)
Monday 21st Cirencester charter (9:00-3:00)
Tuesday 22nd Moreton in Marsh Charter (9:00-3:00)
The year 2020
How do we sum up this year? Well, we started off as normal in January & February a little quiet as expected. Our much needed trip home to Brisbane, Australia in March was great. Seeing Family & Friends and of course, seeing the Sun! It was whilst we were away that Covid hit hard. Rumours of not being able to get back to the UK and uncertainty surrounding anything and everything.
We did get back, but what we got back to was a national lockdown, Self isolation and the country brought to a standstill.
We were grateful though, that whilst the markets had been closed, we were able to sell online. That kept our little business alive & kicking. Markets were re opened in June but then more restrictions were to follow where only food markets could carry on. Fortunately we qualified under the legislation to continue to trade at the markets.
We lost all of our Summer events. Shows, festivals and special one off events. All the Christmas light switch ons were cancelled and only a couple of Christmas markets could be saved, albeit at a reduced size and staging.
But we're still here. We've managed with just a week of trading left before Christmas to still be making and selling our fresh fudge.
We would like to go on record to thank each and every single customer that has bought from us this year. Without you we couldn't continue, so a heartfelt THANK YOU.
The year 2021
Our last market for 2020 will be Moreton in Marsh on Dec 22nd and then we will be closed for business until the beginning of February. This also means our online shop will not be available during this time. We look forward to coming back and seeing regular and new faces around the Cotswolds, creating new flavours for you to enjoy whilst keeping all the usual favourites.
Of course, no one knows what next year will bring. We wish you all a very merry Christmas and a peaceful New Year.
We keep calm & Fudge on.....
Cheer yourself or a loved one up with some delicious, all natural cream & butter fudge
our ONLINE SHOP remains open 24/7
Please stay safe, do the right thing, be kind to each other, and we hope to see you all soon.

UK FUDGE CO
We are a Husband & Wife team that relocated back to the UK from Brisbane, Australia in June 2017.
We wanted to work together, having both had successful working careers in Oz, and live a more stress free life.
We have settled back in England and you will find us at many Market events around the Cotswolds and surrounding towns.
We believe that food should look good as well as taste fantastic, and to that end, we are proud to use Cotswold butter in our products.
We hope to see you out there, but if not, our online shop will help you to reveal your inner Fudge!
Thank you for visiting our site
