London Farmers' Markets | Rain, rain, go away.

Rain, rain, go away.

May 16, 2024

Traditionally the month of May brings the sunshine and not the showers. Someone should tell it! We still have a lot of rain in the forecasts and farmers in parts of the country are struggling to harvest waterlogged fields.

No shortage of fresh veg at the markets though from crisp greens and radishes to sweet spring onions and asparagus. Be sure to get your hands on some new season strawberries as they start to make an appearance - there's nothing quite like their unbeatable flavour and aroma.

A big thank you to all those customers who signed the letters of support for our planning application on Saturday, it was really very encouraging to see so many. Thank you also to those who went on line to voice their support.

Sweet Nothing Cakes had their first outing to Twicenham this month. Ewa Shah has developed a range of cakes that are both low in sugar and in carbohydrates.

We hope to see her regularly at market soon.
