How disappointing! Just a few French product stalls, not enough to really have lunch unless you want to have dessert as main...the rest was food from Italy, Turkey etc... In terms of animations, not much to see neither, it looked like a small parish fair....extremely disappointing, we were at least expecting to see enough French food to justify our trip, the French food market was much smaller than any French market outside London I went to....My friends and I won't bother going next year, that's for sure!

I been to this event last year and to previous ones in Battersea Park. It is nice to see some French culture being celebrated in London and it is recommendable that we should enjoy celebrating all other national days from around the globe. That way it encourage people to appreciate celebrating St George's Day on April 23rd much more.
