Growing Communities' Farmers' Market
Outside St Paul's Church, N16 7UY
Saturdays 9, 16 and 23 December
Keep it local and ethical this Christmas by sourcing all your holiday food from local growers and makers at our farmers' market in Stoke Newington. Buy sprout stalks and plenty more seasonal deliciousness from our fruit and veg farmers Ripple Farm (16, 23 Dec), Brockmans (16, 23 Dec), Sarah Green's Organics (16 December only), Wild Country (16 December only) and Pear Necessities (16, 23 Dec). Plus mushrooms from Matthew at the Mushroom Table.
Matthew from Longwood Farm is taking orders for turkeys and geese, plus sausages, bacon and every cut of pork, lamb and beef, all from his 180-acre farm in Tuddenham St Mary, Suffolk. There's a Christmas brochure and order form on his website. Then collect from the market on Saturday 23 December.
Bath Soft Cheese Co have their usual award-winning selection of organic cheeses, Aston's Bakehouse make mouth-watering mince-pies and Niko B makes beautiful luxury chocolates. Plus, there are Pama's sauerkraut, pickles and kombucha; preserves, cakes, juices, cordials; local honey; hemp oils, seeds and teas and much more. They all make perfect presents too - if you can bear to give them away!
On 9 and 16 December, we have Tim Cowen selling local honey and his beautiful bowls fashioned from fallen Hackney trees as well as Mark and Adrienne (aka the lavender people) who sell beauty products, marmalade, candles and more, all with a hint of soothing lavender.
On 16 December, they'll be joined by Alison Bond, who is bringing her Essex-made ceramics and preserves.
You'll find the market in the southern (right-hand) part of our usual space, which we're sharing at the moment with the Christmas tree forest, every Saturday 10am till 2.30pm, until 23 December. For a full list of farmers and makers who come to the market, see our Producers page.
The market will be closed on 30 December, then the first market of 2018 will be on Saturday 6 January.
