Farming Markets for a Decade
Ten years of London's Farm Markets - so lets celebrate
Location: Cramer Street Car park, Marylebone High Street, W1U 3BN
Description: 'Marylebone Farmers' Market' may be a gift from God...if there is such a bloke.
Located in a car park of Marylebone High Street, it's here that you'll find some fantastic food produced by some great British people who care about all things 'fodder'!
In fact this year '2009' marks 10 year of 'London Farm Markets' and so it seems more than fitting that you should get yourself along to this market - Sundays 10 to 2pm - or indeed keep an eye on the website: http://www.lfm.org.uk/.
Spend a Sunday here starting with breakfast at La Fromagerie and then a walk around the market; Pick up fresh eggs, sausages from the Ginger Pig, and maybe some flowers... Perfect
