March has been, and continues to be, a month of madness for Peckham’s, with not only Mother’s Day falling at the beginning of the month and British Pie Week, but Easter is in just 1 week!
We had a lot of fun celebrating Mother’s Day at Peckham’s on the 11th March with our hugely successful Facebook competition. Our lucky winner won a beautiful hamper to give to her mum, full of delicious treats! The engagement we got from our competition was fantastic – we loved hearing all about everyone’s Mums and why they deserved to win!
British Pie Week
In the week running up to Mother’s Day we were celebrating a slightly more niche event – British Pie Week! From the 5th – 11th March it was British Pie Week and to celebrate we launched a brand new product in store – Jarvis Pickle Pies! These delicious pies, handmade in the Scottish borders (Eyemouth) are made with only the freshest, highest quality, local ingredients. The team at Jarvis Pickle were also chuffed to announce that during pie week they won multiple awards at the British Pie Awards!
We held a free pie sampling event in our Byres Road Peckham’s on the Thursday and the feedback we got was fantastic – it’s safe to say we will be continuing to serve hot pies at lunchtime for the foreseeable future! £5 for a takeaway award winning hot pie, the fillings change from week to week, but solid favourites are:
Pork and Stilton
Steak & Ale
Spinach & Goats Cheese
Chicken & Leek
We also had the arrival of some other exciting products at Peckham’s in March. Some brand new preserves, chutneys and jams made especially for Peckham’s! From Mango Chutney to Blackcurrant Jam – they’re all delicious.
Another exciting arrival at Peckham’s in March was the launch of Harry’s Gourmet Treats . Peckham’s is proud to be the only shop in Glasgow supplying all the local posh pooches with the most gourmet of dog treats! Made with human grade ingredients and lovingly handmade in Edinburgh, these treats are extremely unique and very tasty! To give you an idea.. here are some of the filling in the treats we’re stocking: Pork & Green Apple, Black Pudding & Pancetta, Lamb sausages…!

It’s now just one week to go until Easter! Peckham’s has got last minute Easter treats for all the family!
