Gratuitous Food Porn At The Primrose Hill Market

primrosemarket

Warning in advance here guys and girls, this is a post about the Primrose Hill food market (10-3 on Saturdays) I’ve been attending with 20h33 for the past few weeks. Those who aren’t comfortable with gratuitous descriptions of amazing food then best look away now! …you all still with me? Lovely stuff!

I’m very fortunate to be the “wine guy” at the market. Before we get full time premises set up with 20h33 it’s all about getting out and about with everyone in the local area to spread the word of the great wines we’re offering. So wine dinners and market stalls seem the best place to be. And this market is working out just great!

I’m sandwiched in between Rob (selling all kinds of fruit and veg that I’ve never seen before) and Phil (hunts and prepares his own game meats and threatening to bring down his homemade cider!). The banter’s great, it’s really got us all through some cold weeks down there through February. Our game pie, glasses of wine, and tangerine and apple diets are keeping us going.

Amongst the other traders, who all bring great stuff down, my highlights are the Veasey’s fish stall (married couple who run it are like a modern day Punch and Judy), Cumbrian Meats manned by Christo (what the man doesn’t know about roasts isn’t worth knowing), and the Hansen & Lydersen smoked salmon guys (not cheap, but go give it a try, it’s unreal stuff!).

It’s not without it’s dangers though. My biggest issue is trying to stop my wife from spending all our profits on lunch at the Frenchie grill doing duck confit burgers. And despite there only being two of us, we always need to have a couple of loaves of bread from Olivier’s bakery. There goes the low carb diet! But do I really care? Really? Er…nah!

If you’re ever in the area then come on down and say hello. We’ll sort you out!

Cheers
