The latest from Ealing Farmers' Market
Seasonal news - what's fresh from the farm every Saturday?
Ealing Farmers’ Market opened in 2001 and is London’s only street market dedicated to farm produce. The market takes place every Saturday at Leeland Road, West Ealing (next to Barclays Bank) between 9am and 1pm.
A wide range of products are available from everyday items such as bread,
cheese, and eggs, through to organic meat, hand-made soups, seasonal shellfish
and even honey made by Ealing bees! All produce is grown, reared, raised,
baked, caught, or produced by the seller.
We've now also got organic vegetables back at the Ealing farmers' market. The farm is called Perry Court - confusingly so because we've also got another Perry Court farm at the market and they're both from Kent. The organic farm is actually biodynamic. The other Perry Court farm although not organic use very little in the way of sprays on their crops and have one of the largest and oldest collection of fruit trees in the UK - which means that come Autumn they'll have an amazing range of apples, pears and plums. The new Perry Court Farm which started in June, has vegetables, salads, herbs, flour milled from their own wheat and beef.
Hendley from London Farmers’ Markets comments, “The success of the Ealing
market can be proved by the fact that years on, it’s still going strong.
We have hundreds of visitors each week. We hold special events throughout
the year, such as cookery demonstrations”
Pay a visit to the Ealing Farmers’ Market this Saturday to see what all the fuss is about!
