London Fields Farmers Market – use it or lose it!
Just received this email from the Market people:
Dear friends of the London Fields Farmers’ Market,If you were at the market last Sunday you may have heard that the farmers market may close. We’re very sad about this, but have to face the reality that there simply aren’t enough customers to make it work. It’s a vicious circle; we started off with about 20 stalls, but gradually they’ve whittled down to about 8-10 people who have weathered the storm and stay because they like coming to London Fields, like their customers and the market.We’re therefore issuing a ‘use it or lose it’ statement to the local press, and asking you all, if you like your market please do come and support it and we’ll do what we can to keep it going.
This Sunday: Please welcome Bath Soft Cheese Co who are making their debut at the market. Bath Soft are an award winning organic cheese company hailing (obviously) from Bath. They make a range of delicious cheese including Bath Soft, Bath Blue and the Wyfe of Bath all made using milk from the farms herd of dairy cows.
Their Wyfe of Bath was named as the best British organic hard cheese (exc Cheddars) at the National Cheese Awards, held at the Bath and West Show last week.
Little Coppice Nursery will also be at market with their brilliant range of biodynamically raised plants,with best wishes,Louis, Lissy & Jane at marketArthur, Mark, Cheryl & Danielle in the officeLondon Fields Farmers’ Market – every Sunday 10am-2pm in London Fields Primary School E8
–As the email says, the number of stalls can be fairly small, but there’s always some good fruit and veg on offer, as well as a good butcher. (It’s also nowhere near as crowded as Broadway Market can be on a Saturday, which can be a good thing.)
So get shopping! 🙂
