A small affair with an average of just 18 stalls, South Kensington Farmers' market is FARMA approved, meaning all the produce has been grown, raised or caught directly from the nursery, farm or fisherman. If you arrive early you'll have the best pickings of seafood courtesy of Christchurch Fish, or for something more hearty, amble over to Olivier's Bakery and grab one of their signature bakes.

Walthamstow Farmers' Market

icon-location-pin Walthamstow

FARMA certified, it’s easy to see why Walthamstow Farmers' market has acquired the nickname Awesomestow. Now over a decade old, a trip here will see you rifling through a bucket load of fresh fruit and veg, artisinal bakes and proteins galore. There's also some more unusual finds, like the raw, unpasteurised milk and cream from Happy Cow and fresh pasta from local vendor Seriously Italian. Bellissima!

Little more than a dozen stallholders regularly trade at this neighbourhood market, with an excellent rota of other producers who turn up sporadically. Amongst the market staples are the folks from Galileo Farm (slabs of organic meat and poultry), goat's milk and cheese aplenty from Ellie's Dairy and beautiful blooms from Grange Nurseries.
