|First Bloomsbury London Farmers Market|
|Bloomsbury London Farmers Market begins to warm up|
Some of the stall were one-person operations - Lois Lawrence "Plumbun" impressed me with "I cooked all the cakes yesterday". Others were family or family + businesses. The friendly guy on Nut Hall Farm's goat cheese and produce stand had plenty of stories to tell about belligerent goats and I had an interesting squirrel conversation with the lady on the fruit and veg stall (Brambletye Fruit Farms, I think!) selling fresh cob nuts and hazel nuts - the ones the squirrels didn't get. Apparently they had sent a shipment to feed the red squirrel population of Brownsea island! But I suspect most of them were snitched by the pesky common grey variety!
For the shopping basket there were treats like beautiful courgette flowers and the Bath Soft Cheese Company's blue and brie-type cheese were succulently oozing with flavour and perfect ripeness. Now I am making myself hungry again.
I will be back another Thursday having planned my weekly shopping needs and looking forward to the promise of more and different goodies on offer.
