Brockman's Farm produce is run by one of the oldest organic and Bio-Dynamic Farms in the UK.
Perry Court Farm at Garlinge Green near Canterbury (not be confused with similar named farms) begun in 1953 where previous generations of the family started converting it to organic methods.
The Kent based farm is now managed by Patrick Brockman, a third generation farmer who has been farming using organic methods since his very first day. Patrick says “that after 6 decades of organic management our soil is as fertile and free of agro chemicals as is possible”.
They specialise in the production and supply of Organic, Heritage and Wild varieties of vegetables, salads, fruits, herbs and additional select produce with crops grown over approximately 45 acres of Fields, Polytunnels and Glass House. They focus heavily on harvesting our leaf and salad crops within 24 hours of them arriving at market, thereby maintaining one of the shortest supply chains and the freshest produce.
They also work closely on cropping and marketing for a number of small partner farms who share the same values as us in terms of quality local organic produce supplied direct to consumers. This enables a viable outlet for the partner farms and supplies them with crops not suited to our own soils.
Their market staff also share our passion for Organic and Bio-Dynamic produce and are an incredibly knowledgeable and well informed bunch who love talking vegetables!
Jason Clarke set up The Beer Seller in the spring of 2014, with the aim of making the best of the the UK and in particular the burgeoning London craft beer scene, as easily available as possible. An avid home brewer and a passionate evangelist for UK craft beer, Jason was keen to be able to tell people a little more about the beers he was selling online and the Beer Seller stall was born. The Beer Seller stall at Alexandra Palace offers over 50 different beers from a revolving cast of London breweries, with guest breweries and ales being added on a regular basis. Having undertaken the arduous task of visiting and tasting each and every beer before offering them on sale at the stall, Jason is able and only too willing to offer advice on making those perfect food and beer pairings.
WhamBam-Mother Bhumi pride themselves on making the best bhajias and pakoras that money can buy and they are cooked right in front of you. They buy in wholegrain rice, lentils and spices, grind them themselves, mix up the batter, dip in some seasonal local organic veg, pop them into some sunflower oil and hey presto! They are irresistibly delicious nutritious allergen-free snacks which everyone can enjoy with a choice of dips to really tickle your tastebuds.
If you can't eat them right away then you can take a cold bag home to reheat and maybe even tell your friends you made them yourself! They are at Herne Hill market twice monthly and have been in the pakora business for 16 years now. It might seem crazy but they really do get better all the time! For those who care, they also have a very vigilant environmental policy which means they serve you on biodegradable trays and compost or recycle/reuse much of their waste. They use their sunflower oil once or twice only and then it becomes biodiesel. They are also gluten-free and vegan. This is food for the future!
Ayda Samuel is originally from Ethiopia and she has been preparing and selling delicious traditional Ethiopian food at Herne Hill market for the past two years.
