Fruition Preserves – Homemade compotes, granola, ketches and more made in West Norwood by Wendy Yates, who says, “English fruit season is in full swing and its been a busy few weeks in the Fruition kitchen. We’ve got our tangy Gooseberry & Elderflower, Sweet Cherry and Summer Fruit Compotes (all made with wonderful Kent fruit) back in stock. They make refreshing summer breakfast served with Greek yoghurt and Fruition’s hand-roasted Granola with Almonds & Raisins. The cherry is wonderful with pancakes and ice-cream for a special breakfast or dessert. As always we will have our low-sugar, salt and gluten-free ketchups. Our Spicy Tomato and Spiced Plum Ketchup are the perfect accompaniments for all your BBQ needs and are especially good with homemade beef burgers. And of course our award winning marmalades…..a good time to stock up as this year’s stocks are now getting low! See you on Saturday in the courtyard next to the Store Cupboard.”
Gemini Chocolate – Hand crafted in West Norwood, vegan, single origin chocolate bars and truffles. Gemini have been pinged and are unable to now attend. It’s starting to affect our food supplies at the market!
RECIPES from resident market chef, Alison McNaught
The Wine Scout Naturally produced wines from around the world, sourced by Pedro. He’ll have seasonal tasters on the stall. He says, “Hello! This Saturday we will taste two organic summery wines: The new vintage of our loved white Weissburgunder ( Pinot Blanc) Judith Beck from Austria is drinking very well. Expect a refreshing fragrance of citrus, pears and white peaches. This wine is full-bodied and well structured on the palate, with a balanced play of fruit and acidity and a very long finish. We will also taste the latest vintage of the juicy Viñateros Bravos Volcánico País from Chile. It is a fresh, ultra pure red wine with wild grass, red fruits and a little bit of cassis. It is made from 100 year-old vines grown on volcanic soil. Smooth and delicious.
CAKES, PASTRIES, BREAD
Brett & Bailey The cake boys, Matt and Joe, who say, “It’s time for a jam jar amnesty! We’re making this year’s batches of apricot and vanilla jam next week, so we’re on the hunt for empties. For every clean jar and lid you return to us, we’ll reward you by giving you 50p off your next purchase of preserves – and reusing is way better than recycling, right? Also, on this week’s especially fruity cake trolley we’ll have pink lemonade cake, Black Forest gateau, baked berry cheesecake, limoncello-splashed summer berry gateau, brand new peach and tarragon frangipane tart, and a choice of pistachio or blackcurrant fool bomboloni. See the full menu here. Need a whole cake next weekend? Order online by Tuesday night and we’ll have it freshly-baked and ready to collect at Saturday’s market. We also now sell gift cards redeemable both online and at the stall. See you soon!”
