Alexandra Palace Farmers' Market

On a sunny day, there is no more enoyable market in London – barbecues, grilling everything from juicy sausages from The Giggly Pig, or coconut milk-basted Mozambican chicken from stallholder Zambeziana, will be in full swing, with much of the neighbourhood congregating on the makeshift  eating areas (wooden garden furniture, lawn chairs). Refreshments range from mint tea (from Algerian sweet stall Idli) to Edgebank Organics’ superlative strawberry smoothies, to the coffee stall selling chai lattes and cappuccinos. Be it fresh fruit and vegetables, seafood, cheese, bread, juices or delicious, freshly prepared grub – Ally Pally has it all.

Time out could do with fact checking a little more thoroughly. The market alternates locations, check website for full info


Sad to see that Alexandra Palace Trust have effectively banned hot food from the thriving market, just four hot food stalls allowed as of today. Much of what makes this market so great has been culled for no reason. No more curries, no Bokits, no pies, no scotch eggs, no gyoza, no spring rolls etc etc...


If you want to complain contact the trust who have made this decision http://www.alexandrapalace.com/about-us/our-people/

Fresh from the farm Alexandra Palace' farmers market is a local gem jam packed with produce from the surrounding boroughs as well as other counties across the country. This is one of my favorite ways to spend a Sunday afternoon as you can spend hours walking up and down the market stalls getting free tasters and breathing in the fresh smells of curries, sausages and coffee. 

I've been going here since I was a kid and am delighted it is still open today; based at the bottom of Muswell Hill's entrance to the park this is quite the foodies catwalk. Typically I go to suss out the cheese as that is my favorite food of all time. From Cheeses of Bath to Wildes Cheeses of Tottenham the market has a treat for every cheese addict and you will not be short of choice, even if you're searching out something as fancy as truffle cheese you will find it!

Alongside the cheese you can find fresh fish, fresh vegetables (I'm talking onions the size of melons) and fresh meat. Each supplier is clearly passionate about their produce and are always keen to supply recipe ideas and help you find what you need. A personal family favorite is the welsh butcher who gives out recipe slips with the meat you buy so you don't need to shy away if you are a beginner chef or have simply run out of ideas.

I could go on for ages about how great this market is so why not go on down  next Sunday and give it a try yourself? Even if you're not buying anything you're guaranteed to try a few amazing tasters whether it be 12 different chutneys, fudge or olives and nuts- you will definitely find something delicious!

Used to live just round the corner and came here most sundays! What a lovely sunday spent strolling along all the food and craft stalls. I would highly recommend getting some olives from the olives stall and feasting on some caribbean food!


A great farmers' market with a wide selection on offer but you can't beat the ridiculously good served up by rainforest creations. Healthy food has never tasted so good. Cannot recommend enough.


They have things I now can't live with such as raw organic milk, delicious Guinness cakes, sourdough bread, bokit, fried calamari, true free range eggs and chickens and the list goes on!!!


All the vendors are terrific, such good quality ingredients and it keeps getting better. Also, it's such a friendly vibe: people, kids, dogs; it brings people together which is just what a neighbourhood market should do.

A really great range of produce and providers at this market. The perfect place to pop into in preparation for Sunday lunch. Be warned though, it does occasionally move locations! 


I feel lucky to have this amazing market near us to visit on Sundays. Full tasty international food and products and packed by friendly visitors, it's where you want to spend your Sunday! My husband and I normally get our lunch there and buy some fresh local produce for the week. Not to forget a couple of slices of freshly baked cakes for our afternoon tea later! And guess what, even our dog can accompany us visiting the market! Perfect
