Refreshing fragrance of citrus, pears and white peaches and an irresistible touch of spice. Medium-bodied and well structured on the palate with a very elegant play of fruit and acidity and a long finish. Very classy. Lightly filtered and biodynamic. YUM!”
Smokery – London Smoke & Cure Ross says “On our weekly local stall we keep an amazing range of smoked and cured foods, as well as a growing selection of fine UK cheeses at some of the best prices in London.
If you like fish, look out for our sashimi-grade cold smoked salmon, fresh and zingy pates, and moreish kiln smoked salmon and prawns.
If meats are your thing there’s always a rotating selection of charcuterie and our own smoked native breed bacon.
And for the dairy lovers we carefully select the best UK and European cheese and always look to keep the prices as competitive as possible.
All produce is made and prepared in our little smokehouse in the heart of the triangle. Give Ross a call on 07837 838 241 for any questions or pre-orders. We’re always happy to talk produce and ideas, or just to have a general chat about life and all it’s wonder. Look forward to seeing you down 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.

Find Orlo or Kuba on the bread stall in the courtyard.
Soap & bathbombs – Echoes of Velvet Jo says “With all this glorious summer sunshine, spare a thought for your skin. Don’t let it become like the terraces- parched and crying out for moisture.
