Thank goodness the rain has finally stopped, and remember it means all the produce is extra juicy. This week it’s all about end of summer rewards; fruit, berries, beans, lavender … Our Friday Farmers are out and about gathering plums from Crystal Palace gardens and Spa Hill Allotments as well as foraging ripe blackberries for the Patchwork Farm Stall tomorrow. In case you don’t know, Patchwork Farm buys, sells or swaps any locally grown produce – so bring any excess you might have in your gardens and get involved. Everyone’s welcome to volunteer on the stall as well, so if you fancy playing shop, just ask at the stall.
Guest lunch – Emma and Ian’s Kitchen: Emma says “So as well as our usual amazing melty raclette, we’ll have lots of meze style food that can either be eaten then and there, or put into pots to take away. ALL home made of course. Includes various flavours of hummus (chickpea, beetroot, pea) tabouleh, sweet potato and chilli bites, spinach and feta bites, pea and mint tortilla, guacamole, salsa, pitta, artichokes & olives.”
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. We are very lucky as Crystal Palace is now the only market that Jacob’s Ladder attend. The taste of their meat took me back to my upbringing in Lebanon in the 60’s before the advent of industrial animal farming. Help to support these tiny farms whilst knowing that animal welfare is always top of the list here.

Wine by Wine Scouts. Natural artisan wines – smooth on the palate and no hangovers. Ask Pedro as he’s visited every vineyard.
Cured meats from The Charcuterie Board: Owen’s ode to swine goes like this “After the wildly successful, and incredibly well received debut of our slicer last week, you’ll all be pleased to hear that it will be a permanent feature of our stall from now until the end of time. This week, we’ll be slicing hot-smoked bacon, so don’t even think of having breakfast until you’ve come to say hi. Pastrami, guanciale, chilli loin, nape, smoked chump ham (like speck), are all available by the slice on Saturday too.CWe’ll have our new larger format Wild Boar, Juniper & Caraway; Venison, Pork & Long Pepper; and Chorizo salamis from Native Breeds to buy by the half or whole, as well as a load of Beer Sticks, and Beef Sticks. ‘Nduja is as hot as ever, and we’ll have plenty this week, but alas, only the tiniest smidgeon of crackling, so if you must have it, then we’re open at 10am.” The Charcuterie Board supplies British cured meats from Moons Green & Native Breeds.
Cheese from Blackwoods Cheese: We like this new blog about cheesemaker Dave. 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.
NEW STALL Cakes and gluten-free by Sweet Carolina. Carolina gave up film making for cake making and now sources local, seasonal organic ingredients for all her South East London baking. For her market debut she’ll be presenting a full range of cakes, including gluten-free.
Bee and butterfly friendly herb & flowering plants from Gipsy Hill Herbs: All plants grown with minimal environmental impact on a small independent nursery in Wallington. Follow Sarah on twitter – @GipsyHillHerbs.
