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 a complex white from the Douro in Portugal and a succulent red Gamay from the Coteaux du Lyonnais in France. The Quinta da Silveira Colheita Branco has aromas of dried stone fruit and citrus on nose with notes of green apple. I has a good concentration of fruits and a beautifully textured palate. Winemaker Rodrigo Martins uses traditional methods including foot trodding (when grapes are crushed by feet) and fermentation with indigenous yeasts. The Traboules Domaine Clusel Roch is a super juicy red wine with plenty of currants and raspberries well balanced with a refreshing acidity and a persistent finish. Another brilliant summer wine!”
CAKES, PASTRIES, BREAD
Brett & Bailey Joe says “It’s all about perfect pears this week – we’ll have nougatine-topped bomboloni filled with velvety pear butter, jars of brand new season pear and ginger jam, pear-studded chocolate and hazelnut frangipane, and a glamorous new layer cake with delicately-spiced sponge, bourbon-coddled pears and maple vanilla buttercream. Obviously we’ve named her Dolly Pearton. Not so keen on pears? There’s plenty of other lovely stuff in store for you (like the pictured Top Banana cake). See the full menu here.
Hook and Son Raw or pasteurised dairy; milk, plus butter, cream, ghee, yoghurt, eggs and beef. All organic and pasture fed. Almost all from their own farm.
Holly Farm butcher Andy says “This week its now autumn and the casserole pots are back in play, beef chicken & lamb all nice and warming. And the good old Sunday roast and cherry smoked bacon (streaky back) and trying a new maple cure bacon. So pop down and enjoy the market as much as I do.” Awwww…. we love you Andy.

London Smoke & Cure Smoked goods, charcuterie and cheeses, from their smokehouse in Streatham. Ross says “Hello everyone, we hope you’re all well and excited for this instalment of your local quality food market.
We’ve got some great news in that this week we grabbed a total of six stars from the 2021 Great Taste Awards, all blind tasted by a panel of experts and food writers. It’s important for a small company like ours to get this kind of recognition across such a broad product range, but as ever it’s because of the support that you’ve shown us over the years that has allowed us to do it. Crystal Palace is our home and community and we’re really grateful for the custom you’ve placed in us – thank you!
Anyway (wipes tear from eye), in the meantime we’ve got plenty of fantastic produce for you. Fully stocked on salmon and charcuterie (including some of those award winners) along with some great cheeses. Of particular note is a stunning gorgonzola and an unctuous Delice de Borgogne. We’ve also got a selection of smaller cheese that we’ve ben testing ahead of Christmas (it’s coming!).
The lovely Callum is on for us this week so you’ll be in very safe hands!
We look forward to seeing you down there.”
The Store Cupboard Laura says “Big news – nooch is back in stock. This is the only thing we order that’s not organic. We polled a lot of our regular customers and everyone we asked wanted this type. Plus we have a NEW PRODUCT. Organic vegan stock powder – we’re really excited about this. It’s made by Marigold, so you’ve probably seen it in little tubs in the shops. Chuck a bit in anything savoury you’re cooking, and it’ll taste better.” Price and product list here.
The Walkthrough Becks is offering 15% off for one shop for every survey completed. And she still needs jars! Please drop in clean jars for her to reuse. Thank you. Eco refills and more Price and product list here.
