Exciting New Market: Hackney Homemade FOOD

Hackney Homemade FOOD,
the area’s first dedicated food & drink market will see artisan
producers selling breads, cakes, cheeses, meat, game, fruit & veg,
chutneys and pickles placed alongside street food stalls offering
everything from homemade sausages and salt beef burgers to Japanese
katsu curry and quesadillas.

market will be held weekly in the stunning grounds of the Grade II
listed St John at Hackney church, a building dating back to at least
1275. This is just opposite Hackney Central London Overground station,
and close to Mare Street.

each Saturday from 11am - 4pm, the market will embrace Hackney’s
creative side, with regular art installations and community projects set
to complement the food offering. The first market on Saturday will see
the incognito resident artist paint using just vegetables, with the end
product being auctioned off and proceeds going to St John’s church,
where the market is held. Those who follow the market @HackneyHomemade
on twitter can help decide the theme on which the artist will paint by
tweeting with the hashtag
#HackneyVegArt. The artist will decide a theme from all the suggestions at 1pm on Saturday,
when the art will commence.

regular highlight will be the pop-up teashop, which is run by
Haggerston Tearooms and will feature a large selection of loose leaf
teas and herbal infusions, plus  the chance to make your own blend.
There’ll also be plenty of seats dotted around so that customers can
kick back, relax and enjoy a bite to eat from one of the stalls rather
than rush home with their shopping.

All the details of the
market can be found on the website at
