I saw an advert for this strapped to the lights at the top of South Norwood Hill this morning. 12pm - 3pm I think. Anyone got any more info?

Should this be in this section?

Hi Jannism,

Moved this to Homes, Gardens, Shopping... as that's where the previous farmer's market topics have been discussed.

Cheers,

Mel

No worries, it's a bit of a strange one as it is 'news about a shopping event' so could in theory go under any of three topics :) .

Let's just hope there are no incidents of vegetable theft, because that could really confuse things! :lol:

I've missed this, can anyone fill me in as to times on Sunday please?

No worries, just found the times by Googling. Looks like I'll miss it, it's 10am-3pm, and I'm working 0630-1515 :(

I went along to this around 12.30. About a dozen stalls, looked like enough punters there to make them do it again if not exactly thronged. A bit more publicity might help!

Bought some gooseberries. Can't remember the last time I saw them in a supermarket. My favourite fruit for crumbles, but I might have to make it and freeze as it's hardly crumble weather at present. :lol:

The market was small but perfectly formed.
Some great stuff there, and reasonable prices too !
Next one is 31st July at the same location.

Worth it just for the oysters...

Nearest to where Smoothy?

This topic is about the new farmer's market in Crystal Palace, at the top of Crystal Palace Park, on the Parade, near the bus station.

However, if you want to find other farmer's markets in the UK try this web site...
