Cakes – Brett & Bailey Joe says “This year’s first batch of our Great Taste Award-winning marmalade arrives on the stall this Saturday! Made by hand in small batches, the Great Taste judges praised its “dark lusciousness”, its “rich, deep molasses flavours”, and for being “full of citrus zing”. Come and try it for yourself.

Local growing project – Patchwork Farm (a Crystal Palace Transition Town project), selling locally grown food from our community gardens & gluts. Christine says “Now is a really good time to jump in and do a shift at the Patchwork Farm Stall. With the cold weather there’s not much produce coming in at the moment, so it’s a good time to dip your toes in the water (not literally I hope!), learn the ropes and have a chat to some of our lovely customers. The shifts are from 11am until 12.30pm or 12.30 until 2pm, although you’re welcome to stay longer. You’re welcome to bring along a friend or two – the more the merrier!”
Meat – Gill Wing Farm Andrew says “I’ve got a lovely range of pork, beef, and grass feed Pevensey marsh lamb, chicken (breast, drums and thighs) and perhaps some duck too.” Meat produced sustainably in East Sussex and Kent. Andrew butchers much of the meat himself – find him on the stall most weeks.
Raw milk, butter & other dairy – Hook & Son Organically produced in Kent, unprocessed in any way.
Fish – Veasey’s Dan says “It’s been a great week for us the seas have been very kind to us. We’ve had a great selection of in season sustainable local fish such as Whiting, Gurnard, Herring, Sprats, Dabs & Plaice. We’ve also had some big fish such as an amazing 20lb Turbot that was very popular in the shop. We will be expecting more fine local fish to be adorning the slab on Saturday! Nick will also have pots of his smoked salmon chowder for sale along side our own smoked fish from the smokehouse. Stay warm people!” To order call 01342 822906 or email [email protected]
