Get Half Cut: York Way’s deli-bar eats-in

Up on the blustery summit of York Way, just before it joins Camden Road, is Half Cut Market, which opened last autumn. A “corner shop with a conscience”, say founders Holly, Edwin, Paul and Danny, it is, in truth part store, part bar, part neighbourhood hangout – and now, part restaurant, too. As well as gourmet off-license and mini-mart, and a list of 80 low-intervention wines (not to mention 120 craft beers), from this weekend you can also swing by for simple small plates (think panzanella, rillettes, sardines). Plus there’s all manner of workshops and wine tastings later this month. More on @halfcutmarket. 396 York Way, London N7 9LW

Free Space Gallery: new exhibition

Finally, while you’re in that part of NW5, why not pop down to the Free Space Project, showing a new exhibition ‘Moments in Time’ by photographers Iko-Ojo Mercy Haruna and Lucy Levene? Featuring powerful, dynamic images capturing fleeting moments in parenthood, the works foreground the shared aspects of the artists’ practices: the visualisation of often private moments in parenthood. Until 30th May, Kentish Town Health Centre, Bartholomew Road NW5, follow @freespaceproject
