Thought this fantastic initiative from Crystal Palace Transition was worth its own thread. It's the first proper local market I can remember since arriving in Crystal Palace and you can get involved too by selling your local produce there. Brilliant idea.

 

The first Crystal Palace Food Market will be on Saturday 11th May 10-3pm.

Location: Haynes Lane Market, SE19 3PN

MEAT • FISH • VEGETABLES • FRUIT • EGGS • HONEY • BREAD • CAKES • SALADS • HOT FOODS • THE CAFE THING • COFFEE • TEA • PASTRIES • RAW MILK • CHEESE • DAIRY • FLOWERS and munch munch more.

Please leave your email and we’ll let you know as soon as our website is up and running.

Part of the Crystal Palace Transition Town Group

Good find Darcy - haven't watched Masterchef this season but thought Keri was brilliant and a worthy joint winner last year. She was amazing! She's fairly local to East Dulwich but shame she didn't come up to CP as she could have tapped in to the new Crystal Palace 'Food' Market for supplies ; although now the 'Russians' have moved in with the new Crystal Palace Market 'Restaurant' on the corner of Anerley Hill/Church Road ( ex Noodle Time)  property prices could be sky high. (even compared to ED). Looks like they are doing a similar project in Chelsea too. 

 

Exciting times. Looking forward to seeing what the new restaurant's USP is going to be and can't wait for the new FOOD market ( forget your over priced olives..........) - another great initiative from Transition Town. ( PLUG)

Ha ha, no meat/fish/veg markets for ages and then two come at once! And one's called The Crystal Palace Market and the other's The Crystal Palace Food Market. Are they in any way related?

Not related Nanazola, just a happy coincidence. Exciting times for Crystal Palace! The Crystal Palace Food Market really is a grass roots project ( no pun intended) and  alot of hard work and research has gone into it. Hopefully prices will affordable and as the initiative grows, people will start bringing their own surplus garden/allotment produce to market. It's a long term project and is being run as a not-for-profit social enterprise.

Just finished off the ciabatta I bought from the Market on Saturday - absolutely out of this world, and kept brilliantly. Also, the biodynamic eggs made a lovely tortilla at the weekend. I'll be back!

Don't forget to visit the market this Saturday 10 - 3pm. Bottom of Haynes Lane. 

 

THIS WEEK AT THE MARKET

 

MEAT • VEGETABLES • FRUIT • RAW MILK • EGGS •  BREAD • CAKES • SALADS • HOT FOODS • THE CAFE THING • COFFEE • TEA • PASTRIES • CHEESE • DAIRY and munch munch more.

 

Rachel de Thample’s recipe suggestions using produce from the stalls.

 

We’re delighted to introduce a “Cheese of the Week” from Mootown and a “Special of the Week” from Jacob’s Ladder Butchers.  This gives the suppliers a chance to talk about why their food is so special, and for all of us to learn a bit more about the different cheeses and meat cuts available.  This week we also have a new and funky face and body painter, Doxa, as well as live music at our ‘Busker’s Paradise’ from 1-3pm, courtesy of our friends Cafe Thing and Antenna Studios.  Both will be next to the cafe – a lovely place to sit down, have a drink and enjoy the atmosphere.

 

“Cheese of the Week” – Caerfai Caerphilly.  Caerfai is just outside St David’s (Britain’s smallest city) on the Pembrokeshire coast, where the Evans family have been farming and making cheddar and Caerphilly for 5 generations.  Made with raw cows’ milk by Linda, the cheese is then matured at Mootown for 4-8 weeks.  It’s a hard cheese with a moist crumbly texture and a mild fresh flavour reflecting its rich coastal heritage.  And it’s versatile, perfect for crumbling into salads, tarts and pies, melting into sauces or as part of a cheeseboard.  It’s really lovely at the moment – soft, fresh and creamy with a hint of wild garlic.

 

“Meat Special of the Week” – Romney Hogget from Ronshed Farm.  Hogget is lamb that is a year old, which offers intense flavour along with soft tenderness. Ronshed Farm is certified Organic and all the lambs are raised with their mothers until they wean themselves and are then pasture fed.  This makes the meat much healthier than grain-fed alternatives as it contains a a lot more Omega 3 and trace minerals.  It tastes much better too – meat as it should be.  Jacob’s Ladder have used two different marinades on the half legs – a sultry one with paprika, cumin, chilli and coriander and a Mediterranean one combining lemon, garlic and rosemary.  You can also pick up single chops in a mint marinade and use Rachel’s recipe this week to make your own lamb marinade.

 

“Bargain of the Week.”  The delicious 100% beefburgers that are sold cooked at the market are now going to be available at the butcher stall. 

 

For the first week they will be available at a 30% discount - £1 a burger – so grab yourself a bargain.  The Brockwell Bake buns will also be on sale.

 

Visiting this week are Dona Sardinha with traditional Portuguese food including “Bifana” – a pork fillet sandwich, a saucy sardine sandwich, a blackeye pea salad and “Pataniscas de Bacalhau” – dry cod fish cakes served with salad.  Also visiting isTantie Lorraine offering jams, relishes and hot sauces with a taste of the tropics alongside a limited number of chilli brownies. 

 

We are also delighted to welcome The Tartlettes this week, who are part of our rotating cake stalls.  These two local mums will be at the market on the fourth Saturday of each month and offer the most beautiful and luscious treats.   

 

Bread Bread are back this week with their lovely selection of sourdough and Italian wood fired breads.  You’ll also find a fantastic selection of vegetables and salads and some soft fruits as well as pasture fed eggs, organic flour, fruit juices, raw milk, cream, ghee, yoghurts and buttermilk.  I challenge you to find a better tomato than the ones for sale on the Wild Country Organic stall.  For picnic food check out the Comfort and Joy stall which has a great deli selection and delicious take away wraps as well as theArtichoke Heart stall with their exquisite take away salads and delicate baked goods.   

 

The Patchwork Farm stall is looking exciting this week.  As well as our trademark mixed leaf and flower salad, we’ll have herbs, courgettes, gooseberries and edible plants.  Demi Pastisser will also be offering home made flavoured breads – olive & thyme, halloumi & mint, rosemary & red pepper and honey wholemeal.

Don't forget to visit the market this Saturday 3 August  10 - 3pm. Bottom of Haynes Lane.

 

THIS WEEK AT THE MARKET

 

MEAT • VEGETABLES • FRUIT • RAW MILK • EGGS •  BREAD • CAKES • SALADS • HOT FOODS • THE CAFE THING • COFFEE • TEA • CHEESE • DAIRY and munch munch more.

 

Rachel de Thample’s recipe suggestions using produce from the stalls.

 

Don’t miss our new bargain carrots signs– look out for them on the stalls.  This week’s winner is the £1 beef-burger – a generous portion of pure pasture-fed beef, delicious paired with Brockwell Bake buns, both for sale on the Jacob’s Ladder stall.  

 

Don’t miss Franck and Dani at ‘Busker’s Paradise’ – courtesy of our friends Cafe Thing and Antenna Studios.

 

Sit down and enjoy the music with an ice-cream from visiting stall Crystal Creams.

 

The cheese of the week from Mootown is Ranscombe, an unpasturised goats’ cheese similar to parmesan but with a distinctive nutty flavour from the Cothi Valley in Wales.  Great on a cheese board and excellent as a flavourful grating cheese – particularly in warm salads, pasta, soups and sandwiches.  

 

This hot and wet weather brings loads more produce into season.  The market tomatoes and aubergines must be the tastiest in Britain as are the ripe berries and eggs

 

And you can almost taste the grass in the raw milk, butter, cream and smoothies from Hook.

 

Baking bread this week are the multi talented Chaz & Momo, who are also bringing Asian street-food under the name Monk 29.  Look out for their San Fransisco sourdough loaves and sticky soy chicken wings with sesame seeds

 

Look for delicious cooked burgers from Jacob’s Ladder and amazing wraps from Comfort and Joy for a quick lunch.  They also sell lovely range of deli items and salads as do Artichoke Hearts

 

Mr Muffin Man is back with his amazing bike-stall laden with intriguing organic muffins.  He’ll be alongside New York & organic Cookie and Biscuit maker, Danae, the last time she will be at the market before going back to NYC.

 

See you on Saturday!

And how pleasant is was this last Saturday! My word, yes!  No call for carping here, on such a lovely, sunny day. No sirree! And yet..and yet... it would have been so much nicer had the dear girl in the pub-place been able, in some strange way, to serve more than one bottle of beer; or had answered when addressed. Had she heard me, I asked crisply. Yes, she had. She was just too pre-occupied sawing away at the bagels, poor thing.

The food market and Cafe Thing (Pub Place) were buzzing last Saturday. Glad you had a good time and no complaints Abu Nuwas. You were spotted!

 

It made for the perfect afternoon - a bit of food shopping, bite for lunch and a few drinks in the sunshine whilst listening to Franck, Dani, Herb and some of Franck's young protégées.

 

Music line up for this Saturday looking pretty good too. Let's hope the weather holds! Can highly recommend a visit.

 

Brett and Bailey are back this week with their scrumptious raisin breakfast buns and local boy Colin WJ is also back from hols and will be on the patchwork farm stall selling his hand crafted bread - definitely worth checking out - good price too. Plus Crystal Creams are back by popular demand; the chocolate sorbet is yummy.  

 

THIS WEEK AT THE MARKET- 10TH AUGUST 10 - 3PM

 

MEAT • VEGETABLES • FRUIT • RAW MILK • EGGS •  BREAD • CAKES • SALADS • HOT FOODS • THE CAFE THING • COFFEE • TEA • CHEESE • DAIRY and munch munch more.

 

Crystal Creams come up the hill from Anerley Rd to join us, bringing summery peach, pistachio and their rich (vegan!) chocolate sorbet… a total of 14 flavours of gelato and sorbets to choose.

 

Have questions about cuts of meat? Want to know about organic or biodynamic farming? Farmer Michael Duveen will be on the Jacob’s Ladder stall & he’s the man in the know. That’s him in the middle photo above.  The popular £1 beef burger deal is on too.

 

Our friends Dave & Ash from Mad Ass are back with ‘Dare Ya’, as well as their other sauces, plus chicken and lamb burgers – with chilli, of course!

 

Two choices for bread this week – a selection of Colin’s home made offerings on the Patchwork Farm stall, and Bread Bread with their sought after artisan loaves.

 

Coeliac? Or maybe just trying to cut down on gluten? You don’t need to miss out – come and seeMel on the Owl Kitchen stall.

 

Cheese of the week from Mootown will be a velvet textured buffalo mozzarella – best eaten fresh as possible, with in a salad, with parma ham, or ripped up and stirred through hot linguine with a fresh tomato and basil sauce. Just ask Brad if you’d like to taste any of the cheeses.

 

Wondering about raw milk? Check out the Hook Dairies website, or come and see Drew for a taste and to hear all about it.

 

Music-wise we’re in for a right treat this week. We are lucky to have the “infectiously positive” tunes of Me and My Friends. They guarantee “sunshine vibes” — and possibly some hip-shaking — in their sets, offering a “quirky, vibing blend of old-time Roots Reggae and Afrobeat” with a sprinkling of folk. They’ll be on from 12-3pm. You can sit and chill at Cafe Thing, have a drink, listen to the music, and watch the world go by.

 

Of course we’ll have plenty of fresh vegsalad and fruit, cheeseeggs and dairy as well as a great selection of picnic food – plenty for vegetarians on offer.

 

For the green fingered we’ll have lots of bee friendly seedlings on sale.

 

P.S A little birdie tells me Brett & Bailey are bringing lemon & almond meringue cake, strawberry & vanilla tarts and choccie and peanut cookies . Omnomnom…
