If you haven't been to the Crystal Palace Food Market yet, I can highly recommend a visit. If you want really fresh, seasonal local produce then this is the place to go. As Karen Jones says " I don’t think you will get more ethically sourced produce from anywhere else in London."  The future's bright for Crystal Palace Market

 

And, if you grow produce yourself then you can always bring along any surplus to the Patchwork Farm stall where they'll either buy it from you or you can swap for something else on the stall. Great idea especially as apples and pears are coming into season. 

 

Bees and Beans are back this week where you can buy seedlings and herbs at really good prices. I had a taste of some Stevia the other week which was an interesting experience and especially good if you like the taste of Hermesetas  :wacko: Mike and Sue who run the stall are very knowledgeable and always up for a good chat.

 

And, if you don't fancy buying anything you can always pop down for the Cafe THING to chill out, have a drink and listen to the live music.

 

THIS WEEK AT THE MARKET - SATURDAY 7 SEPTEMBER 10 - 3PM

 

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.

 

After many requests from you all, our fishmongers Veaseys are starting this week.  Chris & Dan bring a wide selection of whole and filleted fishshellfish and they promise some excellent bargains.  Cooked crab claws (£3.50 lb), small plaice (£1.50 each), and Huss rock salmon (£5.88 lb) are all on special this week.  At the treat end of the scale there will be organic salmon fillets (£11.50 lb), dressed crabs (£6 each), sushi grade tuna (£13.80 lb), and line caught bass (£9.50 lb). And lots more!

 

Our Spanish friends Flying Tapas are cooking for us - tapas platesvegetarian paellaMallorcan Cocas (like a vegetarian pizza) and Ruben will be playing Spanish music live on our Busker’s Paradise spot outside Cafe Thing from 12-3pm.

 

For the kids, Mini Magic bring their special show encasing all avenues of magic, dance, song, literature, theatre through movement, props, characters with an exciting magical journey! Special taster session price: £3 per child (ages 3-5 years). 11am - 11:45. 

 

Cheese of the week Bermondsey Hard Pressed is a gruyere style cheese made by William Oglethorpe in a railway arch in deepest, darkest Bermondsey. He uses unpasteurised organic cows milk from Commonwork Farm near Sevenoaks, Kent.  It has nutty, caramel flavours enhanced by a smoky, sticky rind.

 

Meat of the week is new season Romney lamb from Montague Farm in Sussex. Legs £13 per kg (down from £14.50) plus chump chops and double chops £16 per kg down from £18. Jacob’s Ladder also have beef from Jayne and Michael’s own farm available this week.  

 

Our own Patchwork Farm stall will be hosting Pek with her homemade jams and chutnies, plus saladsherbs and fruit grown locally by us all.

 

Mike and Sue from Bees & Beans will be there with their interesting range of seedlings and herbs.  They are excellent value for money and always ready to chat about gardening.

I think it's fantastic that there is a farmers market.  I wish they would extend the market to include a craft fair as well.

Really enjoying the CP Food Market every Saturday and getting back into buying seasonal produce. It's a brilliant addition to the Magic Triangle - Fun and friendly atmosphere, always end up meeting and chatting with lots of nice people, always something on for the kids, loads of  FAB food and produce stalls and some very good bargains to be had too especially towards the end of the day. My only complaint is that it is difficult to leave once you get down there. :lol: 

 

On the topic of children, the aim of the market is to be  a family-friendly, inclusive, community event and they are running kids activities most weeks now. So, if people would like to come forward wanting to run activities then you would be really welcome and can contact Veryan Wilkie-Jones at marketing@crystalpalacemarket.co.uk

Happy New Year!   :) 

 

Crystal Palace Food Market is back tomorrow after a week off. Looking forward to stocking up on veggies and eggs fresh from field to farm to the market. And some of the freshest, freshest sustainably sourced fish and shell fish you can buy

If you haven't tried Wild Country Organics Pak Choi yet then you have been missing a real treat - young sweet and tender - it's delicious. Great steamed or stir fried. Just hope they've got some in stock.  :) 

 

And, Kalum & Sue from Margosa are back with Sri Lankan chicken curry served with rice & daal, or rice & daal for veggies. Plus hot vegetable soup with a kick.

If you like traditional pie, mash and liquor then get down to the Crystal Palace Food Market tomorrow - Gunpowder Pies are back by popular demand! And you may also be served by a man in a flat cap ...... get there early!

 

If pie and mash is not your thing, there's Asian street food from Chas & Momo.   Homemade vegetable spring rolls, Japanese vegetable croquette bao (steamed bun) and slow roasted pork bao (delicious).  

 

Plus all the usual fresh & locally sourced produce - fish, shellfish, meat, veggies, raw milk, patchwork farm produce, eggs and lots of great prepared food too - Comfort and Joy is a favourite.

 

Check out this Saturday's full line up on the calender 11January- updated every Friday

 

The weather is looking much better than last Saturday - good for a visit to the Triangle.
