The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall today visited Swiss Cottage Farmers’ Market.
We were delighted to welcome their Royal Highnesses to Swiss Cottage Farmers Market to celebrate the 20th anniversary of London Farmers’ Market.
To mark this special occasion, over 30 farmers and producers attended from across the 22 markets run by London Farmers Markets.
The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall met farmers and producers, some of whom have been selling with London Farmers Markets since 1999.
They were entertained by a ‘flash mob’ of students from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, directed by Professor Paul Barker Professor of Music Theatre and a band from Camden based Young Music Makers.
His Royal Highness was delighted to meet Isadora Popovic from bakers Popina; Isadora started up her business with help from The Princes Trust 20 years ago. TRH also met Jessie and Felix Padfield from Bath Soft Cheese. Her Royal Highness was eager to introduce The Prince of Wales to Bath Soft, having visited their farm last week. Her Royal Highness tried products including caviar from Exmouth Caviar and was presented with a bunch of flowers from John Cullen Gardens. The Prince of Wales and The Duchess met almost every stall holder on the market and left with lots of produce to try!
