I recently took a trip down to the much talked about Brockley Market and was really impressed! Created by a local photographer (Toby Allen) with a passion for food, dedication to succeed and the ability to spot an opportunity to create a new market to benefit his local community. I had a lovely time there, great producers, great street food and space to either sit or stand around and eat. Here is a quick run down of my highlights.
Amazing looking stand and food from Mike and Ollie, must try on my next visit.
Gorgeous cakes (sorry I was so taken away with their prettiness that I forgot the company name!*).
*I have now been thankfully informed that they are by Browns of Brockley.
Sourdough doughnuts and almond tarts from London Particular. I got the last jam doughnut, it was incredible!
Lovely to see such a great range of potatoes – I don’t think I had heard of any of them!
Hand carved traditional ham and big boys from Moons Green.
Even vegetarian food from The Honest Carrot looks amazing!
Hard to believe this delicious cake, from Sugargrain, is gluten and wheat free – love a bit of salted caramel!
Awesome burger from Mother Flipper UK – best bit was the candied bacon!
A little bit of condiment art to finish off – I would definitely get this framed for my wall!!!
Shiny, happy people eating and enjoying themselves at this great market.
