VOTE FOR YOUR LOCAL FOOD MARKET! (Despite the weather forecast!!)

Saturday 2 November

We’re due a big ole storm, but we’ll be open!  Come along and support our hardy traders. Antenna cafe (bottom of Haynes Lane / top of Bedwardine Road) will be open so you can pop inside for a coffee while you’re here.

Why don’t we close in this weather? Supporting small farms and businesses is at the heart of what we do. Even one week’s closure means the produce that has been freshly harvested goes to waste, and our small scale traders lose income.  Plus of course part time staff rely on the wages and we know our customers rely on us!  So let’s all put our big coats on and get on with it! HAYNES LANE MARKET SATURDAYS 10am to 3 pm off Westow Street / top of Bedwardine Road


Lunch – Jerky Fridays Patsy is making “Rice & Peas, Jollof Rice, Curry Mutton, Jerk Pork, Jerk Chicken, Macaroni Cheese Pie, Ackee & Saltfish, Callaloo, Fried Plantains & Fried Dumplings. All meals are £5 each.”

Lunch & deli – Comfort & Joy Hot tasty wraps, salads and those famous scotch eggs plus takeaways – curries, lasagne and more.  Great picnic food to take away.

Visiting stalls

Vegan cheese – Palace Culture  Mirko says “We will have our cream cheese range and kimchi and saurkraut from our friends @bottlebrushferments.”  Find Alex selling from the blue van in the courtyard, along with Levain Bakery.

Olives – Mar de Olivos Mar says ” I am bringing my usual tasty menu of  olives and other Spanish delicacies:  delicious Spanish olives chupadedos, (aka finger licking olives), brava olives, black organic empeltre olives and manzanilla olives (that I marinate every Saturday before the market) spicy, mojo-picon sauce from Canary island, mild flavour with piquillo pepper and sundried tomatoes or stuffed with anchovies and marinated with fresh thyme, lemon zest and extra virgin olive oil. In addition to these, I am bringing pickled eggplants, sundried tomatoes, queen olives and lupini beans.

Boost your immune system for this winter with some award-winning Spanish extra virgin olive oil, I have plenty on offer made from different varieties (mild, medium and robust taste). Come to taste the oils and I’ll be more than happy to give you some advice. They are full of antioxidants and vitamins and go really well with other products from the market such as vegetables, fish, meat or why not drizzle it on any salad or use for dipping?  Don’t forget about the chocolate with extra virgin olive oil in bars, with different flavours it can be a good Christmas present. I’ll also have those famous organic Marcona almonds fried with extra virgin olive oil which are a must have for your tapas!

I would like to invite you to come and try the raw, unfiltered and unpasteurised “Avocado Blossom Honey”  that’s produced in Malaga, my hometown. It’s dark amber, robust and creamy honey with a gorgeous rich flavour like molasses…you’ll love it on toast with extra virgin olive oil! .Remember that you can bring your own container for the almonds or olives, if not we are happy to serve them in our deli cup made from veggies (our personal contribution to reduce the use of plastic).”


Cakes – Brett and Bailey  Joe says “We’re bringing one last fig, pistachio and chocolate gateau; a matcha cherry cake with white miso buttercream, as so many of you have been asking for it; raspberry ripple; lemon and rosemary drizzle; chocolate Guinness; double carrot; and salted caramel cheesecake.

There’ll also be fat squares of sticky parkin, peanut butter bars, indulgent brownies, triple chocolate cookies, pumpkin pecan pie, sticky buns, cardamom knots, and a choice of pear and nougatine or salted caramel banana bomboloni.
