Visiting stalls

Hot SaucesChilli Brothers is back with their delicious selection of gourmet artisan crafted chilli sauces. Check out our wonderful condiments – apple with yuzu, orange with ginger and more flavours. All our products are free of preservatives and 100% vegan suitable.

FermentsTerra Ferments It’s Justin’s last day at the market. We’ll miss you mate.  He says “Last chance to stock up on Terra Ferment’s organic vegan Kimchi and Krauts before we go into an extended hibernation. These are the last batches available for the foreseeable future so get it while you can.”

Olive oil and olives – Yellow Sunshine Olives, baklava and Turkish delight.



Storecupboard refills – The Store Cupboard  Anna says “Beside 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.

Our bread is now sold by the bakers themselves. You’ll still find it at the market (with a much bigger range) but not as part of the Store Cupboard anymore.  Bread Bread’s new pitch is in the lower market, next to Brockmans Farm.

You can pay by card or cash. Follow us on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook.  We are also open on Wednesdays from 2-7pm.”

Bread – Levain Bakery  Chris Masembe and his team at Levain Bakery have a simple philosophy; to make artisan breads to the highest possible standards. All breads are sourdoughs and are made using their own sourdough starter, a labour of love which they have kept going since they first started the bakery.  Find Kuba on the bread stall in the courtyard.

Smokery – London Smoke & CureRoss says “All produce is made and prepared in our new smokehouse just down the road in Streatham. Give me 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 its wonder. Look forward to seeing you down there.”



Natural wines – Wine Scouts  Pedro says “This Saturday I’ll open a bottle of the lovely, organic red wine Morgon Cuvée Prestige Didier Desvignes from one of the best appellations of Beaujolais in France. A clear ruby-red in colour. On the nose scents of kirsch and blackberries with notes of spice and earth. The palate is light and refreshing with further red fruit flavours. The tannins are discreet and the finish short and well balanced. Altogether a bright yet subtle red. Yum!”
