One of my favourite weekend activities is going to farmer’s markets. And now that London’s weather gods have finally realised that it’s spring, it’s an activity I want to try to do more of.
About 18 months ago, a friend and I went to the markets at Duke of York Square in Chelsea and I can’t believe it’s taken us so long to go back! It’s relatively local (I say “relatively”, as I assure you we are far from the stereotypical posh Chelsea Sloanes) and it’s full of amazing fresh food with plenty of vegetarian and vegan options. I didn’t have my camera, so didn’t take my usual million photos but here’s a teensy bit of food porn just for fun!
For lunch I had a Creole Roti Wrap from the Rainforest Creations stall who serve organic, raw vegan cuisine. It was delicious; especially the bright green hummus!
I also had an amazing freshly squeezed orange and melon juice but I’m silly and forgot to get photographic evidence.
As an afternoon treat, I bought a loaf of vegan strawberry soda bread from another Creole stall offering an amazing range of vegan cakes and breads. The bread is moist and delicious and has inspired me to branch out from my usual choice of bananas for fruit breads. After the markets, we visited a few of the shops along the schmancy King’s Road and I found these delightful jars in Habitat and had to own them.
Hopefully they will soon feature on the blog filled with delicious home-made smoothies or sauces!
