You wouldn’t have guessed it walking along a very urban High Street Kensington, but there’s a discrete farmers’ market that pops up every Sunday from 10am – 2pm right behind Kensington Library. You might not be able to take a trip to the countryside due to the pandemic, but you can get a taste of it at this market which is full of delicious food for you to peruse, take home, or eat next to the beautiful red bricked Library! Come rain or shine, the market as well as pandemic-safety helpers will turn up to ensure you have a safe and delightful experience. Wear a mask, keep your distance, and enjoy the stalls!
As you walk along, you’ll be confronted with an array of farmers’ goods, including a whole stall dedicated to tomatoes and colourful seasonal fruit and veg, a stall selling nothing but rich broth (excellent for soups and stews!), a butchers and a cheese stall, raw milk, and a delicious smelling bakery stall with a variety of tasty bread. There are some hot food stalls including Indian street food, bacon sandwiches and sausage rolls, French country food, and freshly made pizza. For dessert, try a probiotic ice cream, or choose from a selection of choux pastries and cakes. Enjoy with a hot chocolate or a fresh juice!
The market is between Hornton Street and Phillimore Walk, running parallel to High Street Kensington. It’s less than a 5 minute walk from the station (if you’re coming from Holborn, take the Central line to Notting Hill Gate and walk for 15 minutes or get the Circle/District line to High Street Kensington if you’d like to avoid bad weather!)
