One bright and sunny autumn morning, with my son in pram, I walked up to the Horniman Museum to take a look at the new Farmer’s Market. Greeted by waving trees and birds singing we climbed the hill to the bandstand. There we discovered a variety of stalls set against the backdrop of the City of London.
Taking a slowly purposeful walk through the market I was impressed with the varied and high quality of stalls on show. I soon stumbled across Emma-Jane from All Things Saucy.
- She generously she offered me some of her new saucy sauces’ to try – my taste buds tingled with excitement from her roasted tomato and spiced apple flavours. I was immediately won over by her homemade organic produce and I hope to see more of All Things Saucy as I feel her jams and marmalades would go down great at our Blue Patch Christmas Party.
Continuing my stroll through the market my son decided it was snack time, so off we went to search for child-friendly food. Perfectly placed opposite All Things Saucy was Yvette of MeaNGreeN who provides vegan, vegetarian and gluten free food. Working from her home kitchen, this mum is one busy lady; supplying local businesses, going to markets and even providing mini patties for children’s packed lunches. My son was definitely won over by her dairy free, vegetarian patty she was kind enough to offer, it went down a treat. Yvette can also be found at Captured on the Rye in East Dulwich from Wednesday to Friday and Brixton market too.
Continuing our stroll we walked pass Keik Limited a beautiful stall filled with the most divine looking wraps and pastries. Unfortunately, I was unable to taste any more goodies (having already tasted so much). Keik’s products are organic and gluten free, sourced locally and without preservatives; a notion we are passionate about. You can find Keik at various South London markets where Gita and Ursula sell their wares plus hopefully ready for our tea in the Blue Patch kitchen soon.
To sum up we found Horniman’s Farmer’s Market small but perfectly formed. Keep your eye’s peeled for the next Tasty Tidbits and ‘support local’.
