London Farmers Markets
Yesterday we took a trip down to one of London’s most charming farmers markets in Hampstead Heath. If you are into clean eating and live in the UK or are visiting, farmers markets are one of the best ways to sample fresh, local and unique foods.
Although there are many large and amazing fresh markets in London, what makes this one really special is that all of the food sold is local.
I sampled some of the most delicious freshly pressed English apple juice along with the most incredible goat’s chevre with peppercorns…yum!
As there are only a couple days left on my trip, I wanted to be sure to pick up some really special ingredients to use whilst we were here so that I could treat my friends to a few of my best clean dishes before I leave.
On the shopping list:
2 Dozen Free-Range Organic Eggs
What was incredible about the eggs we bought is that they were laid the day before! The yolks were bright orange and I whipped up the most delicious pesto & sundried tomato fritatta with them!
Local Raw Honey
Ended up discovering one of the most delicious pots of honey I had ever tasted. It was a raw brandy, cinnamon honey made in Cheshire! Farmers markets are goldmines for these sorts of discoveries.
Tomatoes, beet root, apples, fresh lettuce, chard, kale & pumpkin
Raw buffalo milk, raw peppercorn chevre
With bags stuffed of delicious, clean eats we enjoyed a walk back through the heath all the way home where I whipped up a delicious pesto & sundried tomato fritatta made with roasted parsnips, capers & of course peppercorn chevre!
