Islington Farmers' Market

Islington market has moved to William Tyndale School (behind the Town Hall), Upper Street, Islington. It used to be held under the covered bit to the east of Islington Green every Sunday from 10am till 2pm. The time hasn't changed though. Things like game pies, fresh vegetables, “home-grown” apples and pears, goats' cheese and so on. Almost like a little piece of Borough Market. Some of the stalls aren't immediately obvious — you need to head south through the stalls down Camden Passage to get to a couple more just opposite the Camden Head.

Highlights include:

  • Mere Fish Farm — smoked trout and eel, rather good fresh rainbow trout (not always there though)
  • Wight Salads — a good variety of decent tomatoes, roasted cherry tomatoes in oil
  • Artisan Foods — little savoury tartlets
  • The bread stall whose name I don't know — good sour French country bread, lovely carrot cake, etc
  • The other stall whose name I don't know — excellent chicken, ham and leek pies
  • Vegetable stall — lovely and reasonably priced mesclun (soft baby salad leaves) in season
