Thanks to local bloggers who have kindly written about our folk recently. Lover of Creating Flavours have been talking to cake-meisters Brett & Bailey, and James Balston has been aiming his camera at Handmade Palace’s Beth Mander, with details about the stall and her ceramics.
In other news – Antenna Cafe is having a relaunch party, Patchwork Farm are celebrating Fairtrade Fortnight, plus did you know Crystal Palace Transition Town will be leading the Transition Town Bloc at the Time to Act Climate March? You can join them! Details of all below.
Antenna Cafe relaunch on Saturday: Antenna is officially celebrating all of the recent changes, and they want people to come and party with them (& us) on Saturday 28th Feb! The crew say “Snacks, drink, some great tunes on the go until late, and of course there’s the added bonus of the CP Food Market on the front doorstep – it’s gonna be a great day!”
Demonstration & lunch – Paella by Demi Pastisser: Demi says “I’m back at the market making a paella…Come along to taste it! There will be 2 paellas – one vegetarian plus one mixed seafood & meat. Mostly all of the ingredients will be from the market traders. So, guaranteed great quality and organic!
11.00-13.00 Paella demonstration – learn how to cook a paella from scratch!
13.00 Paellas will be served. £6 per portion. Best to come while they’re fresh and hot!” Takeaway available too.
Patchwork Farm are celebrating Fairtrade Fortnight: Fairtrade Fortnight started on Monday, and for the next two Saturdays (28 February & 7 March), the Patchwork Farm stall will become a hub for learning about Fairtrade and the variety of products that are offered with the Fairtrade label. We will have a good range for sale at the stall, including Fairtrade coffees, teas, juice, olive oil, dates, and LOTS OF CHOCOLATE (in various forms). Patchwork Farmers and other grower friends might also like this chance to update their wardrobe with some gloves made with Fairtrade rubber latex from Sri Lanka. If you can’t wait to see what the Fairtrade fuss is about, check out the Fairtrade Foundation website.
Also on Patchwork Farm: Learn how to chit potatoes (including the chance to buy a kit to get you growing), talk to other gardeners, and buy, sell or swap locally grown produce.
Also on the stall this week – Pastrami is back! Bacon is back! Guanciale, Beer Sticks, Wild Boar Salami are especially good right now, and the old faves too: Ham sarnies, and ham by the slice. Rosemary; fennel; mushroom; cobnut; venison salamis all make an appearance. And ‘nduja, got loads of that too.”
