Scented candles – Coco & Ginger We love this recent review “We were lucky enough to choose Crystal Palace Food Market as our stop gap between breakfast and watching the wonderful HTFC play at Crystal Palace. I adore candles and the lovely Coco’s mum (sorry I didn’t get your name) recommended her new ‘Captivate’ scented candle. I’m now back at home almost a couple of hours into it’s first lighting – my room is beautifully scented (without the back of your throat synthetic taste). I can honestly say as much as I love and regularly use the perfumes of a certain famous lady I prefer the candles of Coco & Ginger. I will definitely purchase again.”

Weekly stalls – Courtyard site & walkthrough
Storecupboard refills – The Store Cupboard Anna says “Our mission at The Store Cupboard – beside of selling affordable and delicious organic products – is to reduce plastic waste. Bring your own container (we take any jar, bag or box) and get 5 pence off per item. Unfortunately we can’t always prevent our stock arriving in plastic bags – but where possible we give them to Cosmo from Roots & Cycles who recycles them into beautiful sandwich wrappings. So you can save plastic wrappings at your next picnic or lunch-break. Hooray! We’re looking forward to see you Saturday, get your containers ready!”
Wine – Wine Scouts Pedro says “Yeah! Tomorrow we’ll keep on exploring the beautiful red wines from green Spain: the organic Brezo Tinto is 100% Mencia from 30 year old vines located in Gregory Perez’s Horta and Villafranca vineyards in Bierzo, NW Spain. Similar is style to a spicy Syrah, this works well with robust stews and meat dishes. An inky-purple in colour. Aromas of cassis, raspberry and smoke. On the palate, full-bodied and generous with bags of earthy red fruits. Rich and chewy in texture, the finish is lingering. Yum!”
Cheese & cured meat – Capo Caccia Antonio says “Hola!
