Food Market, Cornmill Gardens

food market, Cornmill GardensWe got to the food market at Cornmill Garden’s a little late, but it was clear that it has been a success.

The mix of hot and cold food, plus one or two refreshing drinks and just a touch of arts and crafts seemed to have gone down well with what was a reasonable sized group of punters.

We were there from about 2 o’clock and while I wouldn’t say it was a crushed as I’ve seen Blackheath farmer’s market, it certainly seemed to have more people than the Hilly Field’s market.

When we left, after a couple of lovely sausages in a bun and a crepe followed by a play in the park the food market was still buzzing.

Let’s hope that it’s not the last time Cornmill Gardens is host to something similar.

    WE did the same as you just slightly earlier. There was a lovely girl with hand made jewellery who i would recommend more than the food. She is also going to be at the fair in manor park next week.
    Did you see the hog roast? i didnt get any as it was broken 😦
    PS did you not find it a bit expensive?

    not very well publicised – didn’t know anything about it!

    good to make use of the windswept plains of the ‘town square’ though

    Kate – Yes, the hog roast was being served as I was leaving, so I didn’t get to have it either. It certainly wasn’t the cheepest place I’ve been to, but I wasn’t too outraged at the cost of our lunch.

    RP – yes the advertising boards didn’t seem to go up until the day. That said l’ve seen (and linked to) councillor blogs that have mentioned it and there may have been mentions elsewhere too…

    Rp, signs were up last week ….just in a small space
    😉 There were no signs near the centre just were the stalls were placed.
    Also i think there were three blogs that highlighted it.
