Yes folks it’s that time again: the Underground Farmers and Craft Market is back. This time it’s a twofer: we are opening on Friday night and Saturday afternoon around the bonfire weekend, 4th and 5th of November.
There will be bars, live music, hot food stalls, crafts, food to buy to take home. Saturday afternoon we will again have the foodie ‘dragon’s den’ in which start up entrepeneurs in the food world can show their products to an expert panel and get feedback.
The dates for booking are:
Friday night afterwork food rave: 4th November: http://www.wegottickets.com/event/132416
Saturday afternoon foods and crafts: 5th November http://www.wegottickets.com/event/132417 includes the Dragon’s Den foodie talent show with Sheila Dillon and Jo of The Deli Station.
Entrance is £5. You must book in advance. If you have extra guests they can pay on the door £6, but they can only come with a ticket holder who has the address.
This is a farmer’s market held in a two bedroom flat and garden, a market held in a domestic house. It’s buzzy and exciting, unlike the dreary markets held in carparks and municipal spaces. There is plenty of talent to discover, from urban food producers to exquisite crafts and cooking demonstrations.
There will be a bonfire, a cocktail bar on the ironing board, plenty of urban producers and foragers. You can eat, drink, hangout and learn something too from the food demonstrations in the kitchen.
