Local honey for sale: Beekeeper Kirsty says “Mark & I are both with the Croydon Beekeepers. Mark’s bees are on a big allotment in Thornton Heath, my lot are on Heaver’s Meadow round the back of Selhurst Park football stadium. These are both typical London sites: the bees will have spent spring/summer foraging mainly on the plants in the allotments; mine have also got Selhurst Park railway depot (which is unexpectedly leafy) and the railway embankments along with a little strip of water meadow, they love wild flowers (aka weeds) like brambles, dandelions, clover, rosebay willowherb etc and also blossom from trees (lime, horse chestnut, apple); plus they’ll have visited any nearby gardens that were tempting enough to make it worth the journey. So the honey’s a proper mix of south London forage, usually from within a 1.5km radius of the hives (they can fly further, but only if they have to or if it’s really worth their while). Last year was really bad for the bees (it just rained constantly) but this year’s been very good, lots of sun & good growing conditions, they’ve done well.”
Hot lunch from Flippin’ Nell: Flatbreads – merguez, harissa, herbed slaw, minted garlic dressing on spiced flatbread, feta, roast aubergine, fried egg for veggie option.

Loose leaf tea from Tiger Spring Tea: Look out for Nigel’s special Christmas tea – a blend of ceylon tea, orange peel, cloves, cinnamon bark and ginger. It is a spicy, comforting brew with or without milk, and can be sweetened with sugar or honey if preferred.
Brockmans are going kale crazy this week: green & white kale, purple kale, red & green kale and sea kale (interesting stuff). Plus purple brussel sprouts (give sprouts a chance!), Jona gold apples £1 per kilo – great for juicing or cooking, clementines, avocados, bananas, + all the usuals.
