Here we have Norfolk’s ambassador to Camden presenting his wares at Camden farmer’s market. Ever since I’ve been in Camden I’ve wondered, and asked, often why Camden doesn’t have a farmer’s market. If I get the urge, I tend to wander up to Parliament Hill Fields on a Saturday morning.
Well, now it does on a Friday, albeit twice-weekly. There are tasty wares on offer, from artisan bread (Hoxton on the first week was sublime) to the obligatory Bath cheeses who turn up everywhere. I got some Tottenham Wildes cheese which being young was a bit bland. Give me some lovely Comté from the Dark Knights of Cholesterol any day!
I do fear for the market though. Footfall on a Friday during the day seems poor. Maybe some marketing among the local offices, leafleting local homes and perhaps cheekily doorstepping outside Morrisons or Sainsburys would help a lot. I will enjoy it while it lasts and looking forward to this coming Friday!
