The first is my Marvelous Muesli – lots of oats, seeds, nuts, cacao nibs and cinnamon, but no sugar, dried fruit or any other sweetener. I eat it every morning – it’s delicious with yoghurt and fresh fruit. BBQ Sauce is making a comeback in a bigger bottle, and my popular Plum Chai Jam and Chilli & Red Pepper Jelly are also back on the table. It feels like I haven’t been at the market for a-a-a-ges, so please come along and say hello :)’
Storecupboard refills – The Store Cupboard Anna says “Besides organic Tamari sauce, tahini and nut butter we are happy to introduce another new product that our customers kept asking for: yeast flakes (with extra B12), in bulk, sold by weight. Especially vegans will be happy, as it ups your vitamin B12 levels and adds a nice savoury, cheesy flavour to dishes.
We also have a huge amount of glass jars that customers kindly donated – please help yourself to them when you shop. For free, of course, but we do not take responsibility for the state of the jars.

The aged pecorino cheese will be visiting as well to spend quality time with the saffron & black pepper brothers cheese, the blue cheeses cousins and smoked and aged ricotta sisters. The olive oil will make the day more juicy and gold! See you there.”

Bread – Levain Bakery Chris Masembe and his team at Levain Bakery have a simple philosophy; to make artisan breads to the highest possible standards.

Natural wines – Wine Scouts. Organic and biodynamic wines from around the globe. Samples always offered by Pedro who is a font of wine knowledge, who says, “Hi there! This Saturday we’ll taste the new vintage of an old favourite of my list, the delicious, biodynamic red wine Ops Garnacha Loxarel from Catalonia in Northern Spain. Deep red in colour with purple hints, the wine has aromas of black and red fruits such as blackberry and raspberries, wild rose and herbaceous wild plants. The palate is fresh, balanced and full-bodied with lovely fruit notes. Aged in clay containers. Yum!”
