l love a good market, especially one that promotes being local. So LFE cannot help but feel excited by the soon-to-be Crystal Palace food market given its philosophy of locally sourced, locally sold.
This not-for-profit market is an initiative of the Crystal Palace Transition Town, a scheme committed to building sustainable communities, including local food systems. Stalls are available to environmentally sustainable producers, those "as local as possible" to the area, who produce seasonal food on a small scale.
Bread Bread of Brixton with its sourdough and wood oven bread; Brett & Bailey, two local lads who just love to bake; seasonal marketers - Jacob's Ladders Farms from East Sussex, as well as the organic producers from Brambletye Farm, East Sussex, have already signed up to take part in this great community-based food initiative.
The market will open on Saturday 11th May and will run weekly from 10.00 - 15.00 at Haynes Lane, London SE19 3AP. (More details can be found on their website. You call also follow them on twitter @cpfoodmarket.
