A new farmer’s market has just opened a stone’s throw from the house.
It’s at St Matthias School, just off the Bethnal Green Road end of Brick Lane.
The vegetables looked splendid, and were surprisingly inexpensive. And it feels so much better if the money goes straight to the supplier rather than a faceless supermarket chain.
There were lots of tasters there too – delicious bread, cheeses and cakes galore. We bought some goats cheese rolled in garlic and sweet red pepper, and multi seed bread which we had for lunch.
I also wandered back via Cheshire St, and discovered that Shelf were having a big clearout. I got a lovely red bus poster for S’s room, and the most amazing wooden magnetboard (marked down even more than on the site!). I love the twig magnets!
