CRYSTAL PALACE FOOD MARKET bottom of Haynes Lane / top of Bedwardine Road. Saturdays 10 am to 3 pm.
“Meat, vegetables, fruit, eggs, honey, bread, cakes, salads, hot foods, the Cafe Thing, coffee, tea, pastries, cheese, dairy and munch munch more.”
Saturday July 5th
We are now on two sites – the normal Antenna car park site and also in the Haynes Lane Market courtyard.
The big news this week is that after lots of requests, as of this week the market will be supplying exotic fruits & vegetables. All the extras are organic, fair trade certified where applicable, and fairly traded otherwise. The other important point is that all this produce grows in countries hotter than ours, and we certainly won’t be selling out of season produce, so no watery strawberries in winter. This week’s line up includes bananas, oranges, lemons, grapefruit, mangos, peaches, kiwifruit, ginger and sweet potatoes.
In the Haynes Lane Courtyard (we’ve expanded!)
Bread Bread: Wood-fired sourdough & rye breads, made in Brixton.
Store cupboard refills from The Grain Grocer: Shortlisted for the Community Impact Award at the Enterprise Awards (at Centre Hall, Westminster!). Find them in the garage in the courtyard for nuts, seeds, flour, pulses, cleaning products and more.
