London Farmers' Markets | An Ethical Christmas

An Ethical Christmas

Dec. 1, 2023

Shop local, understand where your food comes from and who is producing it this year. Your farmer's market is the place to buy traditional Christmas fare like free range turkey, free range goose, ham, the best roasting potatoes, sprouts, root vegetables, cheeses, mince pies, cakes and much more. Feel good about the food you serve this Christmas.

Our markets have a mix of organic and non-organic free range birds. Many producers are taking orders for turkey, goose, chicken, whole or as a prepared cut including Fosse Meadows, Galileo Farm, and Picks Organic Farm.

All our veg stalls will have potatoes but if you are want something a bit different look for The Potato Shop stall. They have a huge variety of potatoes and can advise on the best ones for the style you want to cook them in. Make sure you get your veggies in, they are so good for you and all direct from the farm.


Why not try a game bird this year, partridge or pheasant, or perhaps venison instead of beef? We have some great game stalls including The Cotswold Pantry, Newhouse Game, Court Farm, Stockings Farm, Venison Man and MS Venison.

But if game is not your thing we have plenty of farms producing fantastic quality pork and grass fed beef like Bagnell Farm, Beatbush Farm, Boarstall Meats, Court Farm, Galileo Farm, Goodtrees Farm, Grasmere Farm, Hook and Son, Laycroft, Lee House Farm, Midgham Farm, Parsons Ridge, Picks Organic Farm and March House Farm.
