West Norwood Feast

A few weeks ago we took an overground train down from the Yogi Kitchen residency in Balham to West Norwood's Sunday Market "Feast". As usual, British summertime didn't oblige, but the market had such a community grass-roots feel we had a good time anyway. Not the kind of thing you find in more well-connected areas of London, this area retains it's village-aspect and the market followed suit with traders from the local area turning up in force on no-less than three different sites along the high street.

Below are the areas of our real-interest the food-market; though we did stroll along to the plant-sale and crafts-market, as expected we concentrated our time in the edibles area. Not as big as other South-London markets like Brixton, Maltby or Brockley it still put forward a good choice of prepared food such as the guys from Brixtons' Casa Morita amongst others including some good local Thai and Jamaican offerings.  Volcano coffee, a locally based roaster and coffee shop took care of that side of things as well as finding this amazing cake stall who do a selection of mini-cakes baked in round ring-moulds with a bunch of novel flavourings. A great idea, as with desserts you often want to sample loads of different flavours not just say a massive hunk of carrot-cake (though that also has its place).
nice cakes, lovely bloke

An overcast and quiet day but a nice spot. There are stalls to the right and left of the photo too
