In amongst the grand buildings, the offices, Costas and Starbucks there’s a new market in Holborn. Not as big or well known as Borough Market (yet, anyway), it’s open only in Sundays and is in the rather luxurious settings of the Rosewood Hotel’s courtyard.
The Slow Food and Living Market celebrates the good, clean and fair produce from local growers and artisans.
Surprisingly, even though there are a huge amount of markets in London, the Rosewood market is the only one of its kind and is endorsed by Slow Food UK. That means it’s gotta be good!
The set up of the stalls looks a little like something out of Robin Hood, there’s no metal or plastic, just strong wood, cloth and hay bales. In a strange way it adds a feeling of authenticity.
The food has been sourced from London producers and as such you’ll come across some real treasures. Did you know that there’s cheese being produced in Battersea? It’s tasty cheese too. Thick and creamy and covered in ash for extra depth. I’m regretting not picking up a couple of rounds of this cheese and slathering it on some of the homemade sourdough we tried at another stall.
The British salamis are a joy too. Rich in flavour, not too fatty and some wonderfully creative combinations. Whilst my favourite English salamis will ways be Marsh Pig from The Norfolk Deli, this guy comes close second.
Other tasty treats on offer include fresh organic fruit and vegetables, gluten free and paleo suitable sweet treats such as Cavemans tablets, meet, salmon, tea… Check out the full listing here.
Info: The weekly market, open every Sunday come rain or shine from 10.30 a.m. – 3 p.m.
