Alexandra Palace Farmers' Market

A damn fine farmers’ market held in the park surrounding north London landmark Alexandra Palace.

Time Out says

Alexandra Palace Farmers’ Market ranks among north London’s finest for fresh produce. Taking place most Sundays from 10am-3pm, locals flock here for fruit and veg from Kent, pressed fruit juices, rare-breed meats and sausages, top-quality fish, organic bread, cakes and biscuits, relishes and sauces, and handmade pies. There's a decent selection of street food, too, including pancakes, pastries, vegan Indian food, Chinese dumplings and even Guadalupian cuisine.

Because it takes place in the leafy park surrounding Alexandra Palace, this market doesn’t need to pack its stalls super-tightly. There’s a relaxed, villagey vibe and you can peruse while holding a latte without worrying about shunts and spillages. Some temporary seating is provided for market-goers, though on a pleasant day you might prefer to have a picnic in the park.

You’ll find the market near the park’s Muswell Hill entrance. If you have access to a car, there’s loads of free parking on site. If you’re coming on public transport, the W3 bus passes nearby and Alexandra Palace railway is a short stroll away. Turnpike Lane and Bounds Green are the nearest tubes, though you’ll need to allow for a brisk 25-30 minute walk from each. Which, as it happens, is perfect for working up an appetite.

Top Tips:  Definitely check the website before setting off. The farmer’s market doesn’t take place every single Sunday, and it moves to nearby Campsbourne School when there’s an event on at Ally Pally. Nick Levine
