Regular stalls this week
Meat by Jacob’s Ladder Farms: Jacob’s Ladder are a collective of tiny organic and biodynamic farms in East Sussex and Kent that farm using traditional methods with rare breed animals, and come together to sell at Crystal Palace Food Market, the only market that Jacob’s Ladder now attend. Help to support these tiny farms whilst knowing that animal welfare is always top of their list.
Handmade pasta (gluten free or traditional) from Pastificio Mansi: Plus sauces.
Cured sliced meats from The Charcuterie Board: I love a bit of pie chat. Owen says “We’re still trying to assess peak pie, so our latest attempt will see us bring even more pies than ever before. Including a limited number of pork and smoky bacon pies. Full Christmas details to follow next week, but come talk to us about pre-ordering hams and pies if you are around tomorrow.
All the usual favourites on the stall this week. Pastrami and hot-smoked pork belly are back, ham sarnies and loads of crackling. Nape, chilli loin, air-dried beef, and a selection of salamis ready for your slicing pleasure.” The Charcuterie Board supplies British cured meats from Moons Green & Native Breeds.
Cheese from Blackwoods Cheese: Blackwood’s Cheese are an artisan cheesemonger based in Brockley, who use organic milk from Kent, and also have a selection of cheeses from Neal’s Yard.
Bee and butterfly friendly herb & flowering plants from Gipsy Hill Herbs: From Sarah “Herb plants – Autumn is a great time for planting. Hardy herbs planted now still have time to put on some growth before winter to give you leaves this season and will also get off to a fast start when next Spring comes. For winter herb supplies try planting Four Seasons Tarragon and Winter Savoury, both delicious in winter soups and stews or bean casseroles. See my facebook page for recipe ideas.
Teas – Full info on the current range is available on the facebook page and there will be more on sale soon. Bulbs – Now is the time to plant! There are a good selection of native British bulbs on the stall, all grown to a high quality here in the UK and providing colour and scent from January through to May. Competitively priced at 5 for £2/2.45 and 10 for £3.75/£4.50 depending on variety.
Want to recycle your old plant pots? I am very excited to announce that customers can now return their plastic pots to me at Gipsy Hill Herbs for recycling! It would be very much appreciated if they are clean when returned.” All plants grown with minimal environmental impact on a small independent nursery in Wallington. Follow Sarah on twitter – @GipsyHillHerbs.
Sustainably caught fish from Veasey’s: When buying cod please ensure you know it has come from a small day boat rather than a large ‘trip trawler’.
We are very happy to say we won an award last week for “Outstanding Customer Service” at the Celebration of Sussex Life Awards hosted by Sussex Life Magazine in Brighton. We are so happy to be recognised for our efforts and thank all you wonderful customers for your support.” Congratulations boys. We know you’re the best!
You can place an order in advance, or make a special request by phone on 01342 822906, by email on [email protected] and on Twitter @FishmongersFR Veasey and Sons. Find their recipe page here and here’s one for Fisherman’s Pie.
