From Sunday 30 October the Fulham Farmers’ Market is to be held at a new venue at All Saint’s Primary School in Bishop’s Park
The organisers say that the site will mean lots of new traders, more variety of produce and street food and more space for community events. I
The market aims to be a one-stop shop where they can find everything from organic British produce to seasonal European deli goods. It champions local, sustainable and organic produce with a range of award-winning independent farmers from London’s surrounding counties including Wild Country Organics, Brambletye Fruit Farm and Ted’s Veg.
Artisan deli items like cheese, charcuterie and antipasti will also feature British production, but for those goods that simply can’t be perfected in the UK, the team behind Fulham Farmers’ Market work directly with importers to curate a one-stop foodie hub where locals can do their weekly grocery shop or pick up one or two speciality items. Dinner party staples like olives and antipasti from Thee Olive Tree and locally smoked salmon from London Smoke and Cure will sit alongside rare and deli items like Mont d’Or and magret (smoked duck) from The French Comte or sea veg, samphire and wasabi from Westlands Nurseries.
As well as food to take home, Fulham Farmers’ Market will be host to a range of hot food traders. At launch there will be lobster and cod’s roe crumpets from Brunch at Tiffany’s (from former sous chef of Chiltern Firehouse Tiffany Wong) as well as made-to-order breakfast rolls from Pick’s Organic (the onsite organic meat farmer) alongside treats like hand-rolled sushi, fresh shucked oysters and small-batch pasties.. Everything will be prepared fresh with locally sourced ingredients to further champion the sustainable ethos of the market. Coffee will be served by West London roaster Scottie’s Coffee, available to take home ground or whole or brewed on site to be enjoyed while you peruse the week’s offerings. There will also be a fully stocked wine stall at launch, Wine Down with Magda is the newest project from sommelier Madga Wong (another Chiltern Firehouse allum).
The market will take place every Sunday. Trading hours are 10am – 2pm.
Fulham Farmers’ Market was originally based in St John’s Church on North End Road, but had to close at the end of last year due to issues related to the pandemic.
