BOUQUETS FOR THE FOOD MARKET
Tuesday 18 July: Crystal Palace Transition Town’s annual celebration
Veg, fruit, meat, fish, eggs, smokery, cheese, charcuterie, wine, olive oil, olives, vegan, butter, raw milk, bread, store cupboard refills (herbs, tea, flour, rice, nuts, oil etc), eco cleaning refills, salads, cakes, pastries, preserves, lunch, coffee & food bank collection.
On Tuesday it’s our Crystal Palace Transition Town’s Market of Ideas & Annual Celebration – a great event to find out what we are up to & how you can get involved – and if you are new it’s a good place to see lots of projects all in the one place.
Joe says “We run it as a relaxed informal gathering, with some initial presentations and then the bulk of the night is a market of ideas where the room is open to meet the projects, find out more and maybe get involved or start your own if you like. (Latecomers are very welcome – you might miss a few presentations but you will be able to take a walk around the market of ideas)
“At this event in 2012, we had the community brainstorm that led to the launch of the market, now in it’s fifth year!”
This Tuesday 18 July, 7:30pm at the Salvation Army on Westow Street. Click here for the invitation and full info on all the many projects that will be represented.

This is one of the leading lights of the Marche region and has recently won the “Slow Wine Guide’s” highest award.”
