A weekly trip to the local farmers’ market for mud-caked veg, artisanal breads and other nibbles has become part of the routine for many in the capital these days. And there are now two more to add to the London list.
Saturday September 12 will see the launch of this spot on the ground of Shaftesbury Park School in Battersea. There will be pies and scotch eggs to snack on from Hogs and Hens as you peruse the produce from fruit and veg farmers Chegworth Valley, rare breed pork sausage-makers Ambrose, bakers The Slow Bread Company and more. Shaftesbury Park Primary School, Ashbury Rd, SW11 5UW. Tube: Clapham Junction. Sat 10am-2pm from Sept 12.
If you work in Wembley, this new market is the place to go for lunch on a Wednesday from September 23. Set up by the team behind London Farmers’ Markets, which run more than 20 pitches, it will feature a range of produce and street food, all made with high-welfare, high-quality ingredients. Lunchtime options include free-range porkie treats from The Parsons Nose like pies, hot dogs and sausage rolls; burgers from Woodwards Farm; crab noodles from Hand Picked Shellfish Company; and cakes and bakes from Cakehole. Market Square, Wembley Park, HA9 OFJ. Tube: Wembley Park. Wed 10am-3pm from Sept 23.
