It’s a truth universally acknowledged that there can never be too many farmers’ markets in North London. Right?
And the latest little gem is to be found at Yerbury Primary School. Tucked away between Tufnell Park and Holloway Road, it’s also just around the corner from Whittington Park.
Part of a thriving local scene, not far from the shops and cafes on Campdale Road, the school now plays host to N19’s newest weekly market.
And the organisers have form: it’s the same folk who started the much-loved Stroud Green Market in N4 every Sunday (also well worth a weekend stroll).
Since it launched on May 1st, around 20 stallholders now gather at Yerbury every Saturday morning (9am-2pm) to sell some of the best food and drink around.
Talented, charismatic people with a passion for produce, these traders can tell you exactly what goes into their food, how it is made and where it comes from. Which is all part of the fun, of course – and the polar opposite to the faceless supermarket trek, or last-minute corner-shop dash.
There’s plenty of hot food – from crepes to hot dogs – to munch on while you browse, and superb craft sold by potters, weavers and other local artisans.
For the lowdown and full list of everyone coming this Saturday please see this link but, to give you a flavour, below are some key vendors that appear most weekends.
