The Beer Seller
Alexandra Palace Market

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.

Drum & Kernel Popcorn
Alexandra Palace and Herne Hill markets.



Drum & Kernel are London's kettle popcorn people, making high-quality sweet-and-salty gourmet popcorn live at markets and events in a giant stainless steel kettle.

Their popcorn is high quality, always fresh and incredibly moreish. The kernels are mixed with molten sugar and pop at over 200 degrees to produce a huge, crisp popcorn which the sugar caramelises around. They then pour it out, sift it through to get rid of any unpopped kernels and those annoying bits that get stuck in your teeth, give it a dusting of salt, and bag it up fresh. Their popcorn is vegan, gluten- and nut-free and made with non-GM corn. They make all their popcorn live at markets, creating a large amount of noise and an amazing sugary smell which travels down the street!

They attend a mix of regular markets including regular pitches at Herne Hill Farmers Market and Alexandra Palace Farmers' Market, as well as a range of pop-up cinema and other events and festivals all over London throughout the year.

Fosse Meadows
Herne Hill and Alexandra Palace markets

Nick & Jacob at Fosse Meadows run a high welfare, slow grown free-range chicken farm in Leicestershire.

The key difference with our chicken is the age that we grow it to – 81 days minimum. This is 4 weeks longer than normal free range and a couple of weeks longer than organic. This produces a super tasty chicken – like chicken used to taste with flavour and texture to the meat. Come Christmas, geese, cockerels and turkeys are on the scene, again all grown slowly for more flavour.

Our Chickens have been recommended by James Martin on Saturday Kitchen, and by Diana Henry – local resident to Ally Pally farmers’ Market and author of ‘A Bird in the Hand: Chicken Recipes for Every Day and Every Mood’.

The Urban Cordial Company
Alexandra Palace market

Natasha made her first bottles of cordial from an Elder tree by her allotment. At the time she was working for a consulting firm and needed a creative outlet to escape her boredom. She found herself foraging for more fruits in London, with bemused passers-by observing as she shook apple trees to get the juiciest fruit from the top of the tree.

With her first batches of cordials ready she stumbled into a farmers’ market, and when her entire stock of hundreds of bottles was sold over just a couple of weekends, what started as a fun idea suddenly felt like it could be a viable venture.

The Urban Cordial Company has moved on from foraging to buying their fruits from farms around London. Natasha and her team make their cordials by hand using only fruits that are in season. As a consequence, each batch is a little bit different, and the flavours rotate throughout the year to reflect the seasons.

The Pished Fish
Oval and Herne Hill markets





The Pished Fish - Booze Infused Smoked Salmon.

Spawned from a love of curing and smoking meat, James Eagle decided to try his hand at curing and cold smoking salmon. The results were fantastic and he eventually gave in to pressure from friends and family to make a business out of it. Inspired by working in Scandinavia where the combining of alcohol in the cure is common in gravlax, there is plenty of room for experimentation with different flavours and different wood smoke combinations.

Look for The Pished Pirate - salmon cured in spiced rum and grated ginger, smoked over oak and glazed with molasses. Or perhaps something more 'zingy'? Try their gin, citrus zest and dill cured salmon, lightly smoked over apple and alder wood, perfect with some sourdough, watercress and their mustard and dill sauce. Come and find James and Hermione (his long suffering vegan girlfriend) at Oval on Saturdays. and Herne Hill every other Sunday.

London Beer Lab
Herne Hill Market





London Beer Lab was established in 2012 to offer brewing workshops to craft beer enthusiasts in London. Since inception, thousands have got to grips with mashing, sparging and hopping at their premises in Brixton. Experimentation has always been high up on the list of priorities and led to a flurry of original brews drawing inspiration from cutting edge brewing techniques as well as traditional and sometimes forgotten methods. As the UK's first open source brewery their recipes are published online for others to recreate and experiment with.

They've recently opened a commercial brewing site in conjunction with Clarkshaws Brewery at The Beer Hive in Loughborough Junction with an onsite taproom open every Saturday from noon until dusk.

Narnia Natural Foods
Alexandra Palace, Stepney, Oval, Streatham and Herne Hill markets.







Narnia Goat’s Cheese is a independently owned boutique creamery, which takes pride in the uncompromising approach taken to ensure the unique quality of its cheeses. The cheeses are produced on a small scale which enables us to closely monitor each and every cheese, Narnia has been existing since 2003. We started making cheese at our smallholding in the rural area of the Western Cape (South Africa), when we immigrated to the UK we set up our creamery in the beautiful country county of Hertfordshire.

All of our cheeses bear the stamp of the research, zeal and commitment we put into our work. At our creamery, we chose to specialize in rich, complex and refined cheeses that render full justice to the quality of the milk and the art of cheese making. The cheeses are produced using traditional techniques passed on to us by a traditional cheese maker who luckily lived in the same village where we started making cheese. All of our cheeses are made from 100% goat milk produced by our milk supplier on a farm in the Cambridge area, who has a herd of pedigree dairy goats and is known world-wide for its high lactation and longevity. The goats on the farm are treated with care and respect, and enjoy excellent living conditions along with natural food that includes a variety of grains and alfalfa, free of any hormones or food additives.

Our unique approach is based on sincere passion for cheese making, and as a result every cheese is a work of art. Narnia’s policy is to use only natural, organic and GMO-free ingredients, so you know you are getting great produce without the nasties.

Brockman’s Farm Produce
Alexandra Palace, Stepney, Oval, and Herne Hill markets.







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!
