This week at Islington Farmers Market

Farmers_market Jenny, Meredith, Cheryl, Mark and Arthur of London Farmers Markets write: We hope you enjoyed our plant fair last weekend, and also the hog roast provided by David Wilkinson, of Downland Pigs. One thing you may not have realised was that very early on in the day (David starts his hog roast going at around 2.30AM!!), the crank on his spit-roast broke. With repairs impossible to find on a Sunday, and not wanting to waste an entire pig, David painstakingly hand-turned the spit-roast all the way up until 2PM! So don’t be surprised if David’s right arm is looking the worse for wear this weekend!

This weekend, fingers crossed, we will have a visit from the enigmatic Isle of Wight Garlic, with their range of different varieties of fresh garlic and garlic preserves, as well as their asparagus. Make sure you don’t miss out, because we can’t tell you when they’ll be back just yet!

Also, you may be interested to know that Alham Wood Buffalo Farm have been working with an Italian artisan cheese maker and are now selling delicious, traditional hand made mozzarella. They’re encouraging you to bring your own container to put it into!
So visit Islington Farmers Market this Sunday for a treat!

    Looks interesting. Does anyone know what happened to the Kings Cross Farmers Market? It may be up and running – I haven’t seen much about it though!
