Olive oils and olives – Mar de Olivos Mar says “I am bringing a wider menu of healthy olives and other delicacies as this is my last market until September : Come an enjoy some gazpacho while shopping or take some home! buy delicious Spanish olives to enjoy under the sun, chupadedos, (aka finger licking olives), brava olives, black empeltre olives and manzanilla olives (that I always marinate myself early in the morning on the day before the market) spicy, mojo-picon sauce from Canary island, mild flavour with piquillo pepper and sundried tomatoes or stuffed with anchovies and marinated with fresh thyme, lemon zest and extra virgin olive oil.

In addition to these I am bringing artichokes, sundried tomatoes and a special olive salad.  Spanish extra virgin olive oil conventional, organic or byodinamic, made from different varieties (mild, medium and robust taste). They are full of antioxidants and vitamins and go really well with other products from the market such as vegetables, fish, meat or why not drizzle it on any salad or use for dipping? Don’t forget about the chocolate with extra virgin olive oil in bars, with different flavours. I’ll also have those famous Marcona almonds roasted with a little bit of salt, which are a must have for your tapas! 
I would like to invite you to come and try the raw, unfiltered and unpasteurised avocado blossom honey that’s produced in Malaga, my hometown. It’s dark amber, robust and creamy honey with a gorgeous rich flavour like molasses…you’ll love it on toast with a nice and mild extra virgin olive oil! .Remember that you can bring your own container for the almonds or olives, if not we are happy to serve them in our deli cup made from veggies (our personal contribution to reduce the use of plastic). As an special gift for this Saturday I will give away ten 100ml bottle of extra virgin olive oil for the first 10 customers who spend £10 or more on products from us. If you have any special order (olives or big container of extra virgin olive oil) don’t forget to contact me and I’ll bring with me to the market. See you on Saturday. Mar”

Wine Scouts: Pedro

Natural wines – Wine Scouts   Organic and biodynamic wines from around the globe.  Samples always offered by Pedro who is a font of wine knowledge. This week Pedro says “We’ll open a refreshing white wine from Kamptal in Austria. Martin & Anna Arndorfer Vorgeschmack White is a blend of 80% Gruner Veltliner and 20% Riesling, fermented respectively in steel vats and in large oak casks. Enticing savory notes of apple, citrus fruit and chervil, yeast and white pepper. These are given direction and drive on the spritzy, lively palate by brisk, crisp and fresh acidity. This is Martin’s introduction to Kamptal wines: fresh, mineral and gently aromatic, and incredibly easy drinking. Unfiltered, biodynamic, no added sulphites. Yum!”
