Wine, veg, fruit, eggs, storecupboard refills, cleaning product refills, raw, vegan, salads, juices, bread, pastries, organic beauty products & CP calendar.
NEW STALL Natural wine from Wine Scout: Pedro says “I sell natural wine in markets and pop-up events. I champion established and emerging producers who work on tiny estates across Europe producing organic, biodynamic and low-intervention wines. Some of the producers are personal friends. On Saturday I’ll be showing organic or biodynamic wines from France, Italy and Spain, such as: ALFREDO MAESTRO TEJERO, Ribera del Duero – Biodynamic. Alfredo’s wines are completely natural wines, with no sulphur added in the vineyard or the winery. All vineyard treatments are natural, and many of them follow biodynamic practices. His Lovamor is made with the rare indigenous variety Albillo and has a sweet nose of roses, mineral and red berry fruits which lead to a dense palate of plum, cherry and berry compote. Yum!
The Unofficial Crystal Palace Calendar: Funny stories, a certain famous lost cat, local faces… the Palace calendar for palace people. They’ll be sharing a stall with Sarina.
Neals Yard Organic Remedies: Beauty products, gift sets and advice from Sarina.

Want to know about foraging? Foraging teacher Chris Phyto will be in the market from 10:30am til 3pm. Come and see him on the Patchwork Farm stall to ask wild food questions, or just chat about foraging. He’ll have a range of other wild food nibbles to taste, plus you can try (and buy) his hawthorn ketchup. Chris will be hosting a couple of mini 45 min walks around the market to see what edible weeds are growing there. Booking is from the stall and is just £5. Want more depth? At 3pm, Chris will be leading a stroll around Crystal Palace park, discovering what we can ferment at this time of year. This one and a half hour walk will be a special market deal of only £10 – book on the stall on the day.
What on earth is lacto-fermentation? Annie Levy is on a mission to prevent the art of fermention becoming high end and foodie in the UK. She likes working with community groups and will be providing all her sauerkraut help for free. You’ll get to take your own jar of sauerkraut home, as a little pet. She’ll be on the Patchwork Farm stall with Chris. FREE

Heaven Preserve Us: Anita says “We’re looking forward to manning our stall on Saturday. With new products on offer including Orange, Cranberry and Cointreau marmalade for your morning toast and Hot Aubergine chutney. Perfect to accompany a cheese board or your favourite curry. We’ll have our usual favourites too so come and sample our mouth watering flavours and pick up some Christmas presents too.”
Fish: Not many boats out this week because of strong winds and generally poor weather, our boat has been out most nights but with the catch mainly being bass we are short of variety. The other local boats that catches most of our flat fish will not be out until Sunday night because of the strong winds (strong winds good for bass but not for flats). Our boat will be coming in late tonight/early Saturday morning, it’s then we will find out exactly what we have to offer.

Guest cake stall – ‘Fishy’s’ Marvellous Cake Sale: Victoire says “In March 2014, whilst playing rugby, 26 year old Jack Fishwick was involved in a tragic accident which has, at the moment, left him with little feeling or useful function from the shoulders down. By throwing Fishy’s scrummy cake sale we hope to raise funds towards Jack’s ongoing rehabilitation once he leaves Stoke Mandeville hospital to live in his own home. There will lots of different scrumptious cakes which will include cookies caramel slice, carrot cake, oreo cheesecake, lemon drizzle, lemon tart, victoria sponge, gooey rolo brownies and so much more!”

BOUQUET FOR BROMLEY COUNCIL
(I’m sorry, I’ll read that again)
Bouquet for Bromley council
A local resident complained to Bromley council on October 10 about the very tatty Alma Place road sign just to the left of YoguSensi and The Alma pub on Church Road.
The sign, screwed on to a wooden board, had slid down to ankle level. Someone had also tried to
wrench the sign off so it was missing almost half its screws (This had been like it for some time).
The complaint was made on October 10th. The sign was removed a couple of weeks later and, in the last fortnight, has been replaced by a nice new sign.
(The complaint was made via Bromley council’s Bromley.gov website – ‘Fix my street’. And, in this particular instance, they have.)
