Following on from the success of the Forest Hill Society monthly Food Fairs, the Horniman Farmers' Market (run by Griffin, Kendall and Cox) is now a thriving weekly Saturday market.
Regular stalls include vegetables, bread, meat, cheeses, eggs, cakes, muffins, handmade pasta, juices, and loads more food to eat there or take home for the week ahead. All the produce is excellent quality and produced or sourced locally. Recently Billings of Sydenham have added fish to the market. And once a month you will find the Forest Hill Society stall with information about events in the local area and shops on the high street.
Horniman is a superb venue, with possibly the best views at any market in London. The market brings a greater variety of foods to the area, competing primarily with Sainsbury's. It is there to give you the opportunity to buy local produce direct from farmers and local producers, in addition to supporting local shops on the high street.
If you haven't been before, pop along on a Saturday between 9:30am and 1:30pm, and enjoy doing some shopping in a great setting.
