Yum - the Kat-Su chicken I had last week was amazing....
But I will have to go early - Andy Murray was made in Scotland after all!
Probably worth repeating where & when this is held - in addition, don't see it listed in this sites events page?
North Harringay Primary
Sorry about that - wrongly assumed everyone knew, as we've posted a number of times. For full details, I've linked to our site in the post!
I think the issue here is that on this site the market is listed under: http://www.harringayonline.com/page/local-farmers-markets rather than on the standard events calendar, I for one never normally look under this tab - if its not on the calendar most people won't know its on!
many thanks for including link had no idea market existed 07/07/2012
We've been working to publicise on HarringayOnline for the past few weeks, alongside a poster/ leaflet campaign and social media but word-of-mouth is also a powerful medium, so do spread the word!
This is all good publicity, but I would also recommend taking a leaf out of the Ally Pally Farmer's Market and putting some A frame signs either end of the road when the market is open to drive passing trade in and reassure people they're heading in the right direction.
Went for the first time today, well done for all the hard work so far!
Thanks everyone who braved the weather to come to Harringay Market today.
Please continue to visit the market and support our local traders, farmers, artists and businesses.
I went to the Market for the first time today and took two neighbours and we ate and bought delicious food. I will definitely be visiting regularly. I really enjoyed it.
BUT some of the take away traders use non-recyclable containers such as polystyrene. PLEASE NO!!!! They CANNOT be recycled into our wheelie bins. I checked the A to Z of recyclable materials and they are an absolute NO_NO. Can someone alert the traders please that they should use the tin foil containers.
I think us punters should make a point of mentioning this to any offending stallholders, as the traders may respond more quickly if they know it is affecting purchasing decisions...
Meanwhile, two thumbs up to Taste of Sri Lanka. Delicious - am slowly working my way around all of the stalls, but they are the tastiest so far in my book.
