I can't believe I haven't been here sooner. Such a great local farmers markets, with loads of stalls selling good quality produce.
I picked up a ton of apples, and kale for such great prices. I went a little late, and a lot of the food was sold, so if you want to get your weeks worth of fruit, vege and meats, you might want to get there a little earlier. I got there at around 12:30 and a few vendors were packing up.
Next week I aim to get there much earlier.
Great market with great choices of vegetaes, meats, breads, pies and prepared meals.
The price are really good as most of the vegetables are the same price or cheaper than Sainsbury's. As you would expect, the prices rise with prepared food.
Lots of food to eat on site.
Great spirit on a great street.
A very nice farmer's market, Sundays only. It's well worth a visit if getting to Queens Park stations isn't too much of a hike.
There were at least 40 vendors including:
- 3 or 4 booths selling cheeses
- 4 or so purveyors of meats
- 2 or 3 seafood sellers
- many selling veggies, cakes, pastries, ciders, eggs and other raw materials.
And if you just want to show up and eat, there were 5-6 vendors selling sausage rolls, burgers, chicken, pulled pork/beef sandwiches, plus French stews.
While there are much bigger/well known weekend markets in London, I think this is the best example of a local one that is mostly focused on farmers, fisherman, bakers and butchers - but that also has a lot of stalls where you can eat something really nice. Nobody is selling overpriced jars of stuff or catering to massive crowds.
This is a market where you can discuss how the cheese is made with the person who made it.
Most of the goods are sold with customer satisfaction in mind and high quality. All the people are really nice and I think I can get used to shopping from here. It's a little off my way but it's worth the drive.
Ah farmers markets. I used to live right next to one and it was just so nice to have fresh fruit and veggies and pre-made goodies and flowers and meat and seafood and pastries and bread and ice cream and coffee right on your doorstep.
This one was just as good. I think california has different regulations or something because there were lots more meat and seafood stalls. There were at least two or three duplicates of each type of stall.
I suggest doing a once around to compare prices and see what's all there that day.
So excited to come back and figure out what to make that evening for Sunday roast with my market finds!
On Sunday mornings and early afternoons, the car park and playground of Salusbury Primary School is transformed into a small and lively farmers' market.
You will find delicious local produce at reasonable prices and some of the sellers even have supermarket style special offers. The quality is very good and the variety of foods on offer is impressive. Fruits, vegetables, meats, cheeses, breads and other baked goods, and posh butter (£2.00 from one seller but butter as if from another planet than you'll find at a supermarket and worth every penny!) are all regularly available.
You can even treat yourself to a reusable 'Queen's Park Market' bag to carry all your treasures home in.
I love markets and this one is small but cute and friendly. Hosted every Sunday (from 10am to 2pm) in a primary school in Queen's Park, it feels a bit like a end of the year party of the school (specially when we went there with a great sun and a feel of summertime in the air). Everything you way want to buy is there without having to drive all the way to the countryside or.. Borrough Market: Fresh fish, meat and poultry, great organic salads, tomatos on the vine and all kinds of vegetables, honey, cheese (not hige choice but tasty). Overall a bit limited in choice and not cheap but a good place to go to if you live not to far. From there you can stop for breakfast or lunch at one of the many good places to eat on Salisbury Avenue or even walk to Queen's Park for a pique-nique or barbecue not a bad way to spend a sunny Sunday in (North)West London.
Located in NW6 (just up from the Queen's Park Tube Station on the Bakerloo Line), the Queen's Park Farmers Market has quickly become a firm favourite with the local community and beyond. Here I found wonderful fresh fish, great freshly baked bread, a wide variety of salads and veg, as well as excellent (and affordable!!) meat from Leicestershire.
My husband loved the freshly barbecued lamb burgers, with home-made relish . My daughter, on the other hand, couldn't get enough of the rosemary focaccia bread. Whatever you fancy, there certainly is a lot here to temp you and your taste-buds.
The market is on Sunday from 10am to 2pm. My advice would be to get there before noon, especially when the weather is nice, as some of the stalls can sell out. The nearby Queen's Park has a good cafe and playground, if you need a bribe/reward for your little ones.
One of the stall holders told me that he thought this was 'one of the best farmers markets in London' - I definitely agree.
