Lucky Stokey folk– you’ve got a new-ish food market to explore on Sunday mornings. It’s held at Newington Green Primary School, where you’ll find around 20 stalls selling seasonal fruit and veg, fresh meat, cheese, bread, cakes and an inventive array of foodie products, many British-made and grown.
Traders so far include Flavours of Spain (artisanal produce from Spain including top-quality chorizo), the Flour Station (delicious breads), Marsh Produce (lamb, pork, beef and game from a family-run farm in Kent), Cooks & Capers (jams, marmalades and chutneys) and Norbiton Cheese (guess what?). There’s all sorts of enticing street food too – salt beef bagels, burgers, pizza, sweet treats and coffee. We’re pleased to see that plenty of London outfits are involved, from Archway-based brownie makers Batch Bakery to Vadasz Deli; creator of hand-made sauerkrauts, kimchees and pickles. And you really couldn’t get more local than Amy and Ross, the duo behind the London Marshmallow Company – they live on Newington Green, which is where they also create their pillow-soft gourmet mallows. Each is named after a different area of London – so the Spitalfields is flavoured with Sicilian lemon, the Wimbledon tastes (of course) of strawberry and Madagascan vanilla, and the Soho of espresso coffee and walnut.
