Brook Green Market and Kitchen is your local food market with fruit, Veg, meats, cheeses, fresh pasta, raw milk, cakes, eggs, artisan bread and so much more. We champion British naturally grown free rang and organic meats and produce, we believe it is much healthier for you. We want to tell you that we are expanding our range at the market to make it more of a one stop shop. We will have fresh fish, granola, porridge and lots more fruit and veg all starting on the 19th March 2016.
Perry Court Farm is joining us at the market and will be trading with us every week. It will mean we will have all the full range of fruit and veg that is available in season throughout the whole year. They will bring along everything and importantly they will have everything that you can get in winter as well as summer. This will bring much more variety to the market and will make it a one-stop shop when it comes to getting fruit and veg that is in season. You can also expect Tomatoes all year round. They also produce their own range of healthy fruit crisps that count as part of your 1 a day as well as their own juices.
The farm itself produces a huge range of salad and vegetable crops but also work with neighbouring farms to make sure they can bring all that is needed to your plate. They don’t use any fertilisers or crop sprays at all, relying on a traditional rotation system. So fresh produce that is delicious in taste and is natural. One thing you will also find is that they are also very competitive with their pricing. Millets Farm will also be back as soon as asparagus is in season.
Channel Fish have already started with us last week, they actually sell the fish that they catch so you are buying direct from the fisherman. They also sell some organic farmed fish but only from sources they know and trust. Their Fish is less than 24 hours out of the sea, you can’t get fresher fish and they are cheaper than most fishmongers. All their fish is caught in the English Channel in a 2-8 mile radius of Shoreham harbour where they land. They fish using fixed nets, gill nets and lines off small day boats which means all their fish is caught sustainably.
Lastly we have The Crunch joining us, here is what they had to say: -The Granola at The Crunch is made using the finest ingredients and is slowly baked to create delicious aroma, texture and flavour. The Crunch is a small – batch granola street food company based in Brockley. Our unique inventions are all natural, preservative – free and have many organic ingredients. Always using local fruits and thick and tasty ”Court Lodge” yoghurt. We serve granola with a choice of fruits, yoghurt or milk (or both!) and different syrups.
As well as fresh produce we also have street food, live music, a bar, coffee and board games so there is plenty to do for all ages and the little ones can also play on the climbing frames that we have. We are very much a community market.
