The next market here is on No Markets in this location.
Lyric Square, Hammersmith, London, W6 OQL
One of London’s first organised fresh farm produce and “street food” markets will reach its tenth anniversary next month at a time when food markets still lead the way in setting gourmet trends around the capital.
City and Country Farmers’ Markets (CCFM) was the first organisation in Britain to really push the agenda for locally sourced farm produce and street food when it opened a market in Lyric Square in Hammersmith in 2005. Every Thursday for the past ten years, thousands of workers and commuters passing through Hammersmith have a wide range of fresh, affordable, ethically-sourced food to choose from, as well as delicacies from Thai, Filipino and Caribbean cuisines.
Although London rightly has a reputation as one of the leading foodie cities in the world today, this has not always been the case. Only ten years ago, London workers were more used to grabbing a quick egg-and-cress sandwich from the local supermarket for lunch than sampling freshly-made food, cooked right in front of them, from all over the world.
CCFM has helped popularise this trend of providing easy access to both organic farm produce and tasty cooked food at its market at Lyric Square, which is one of the longest-running food markets in the capital.
Caroline Umali, a happy customer who keeps coming back week after week, noted on the FourSquare website: “The Filipino food [at the Hammersmith Thursday market] is pretty good and I can say that as I’m Filipina and I find it hard to find decent places that do the food well”.
