Farmers Market goes Uptown!

As a slight change to the regular programme I decided to check out a different farmers market this weekend. As I needed to visit the stunning ribbon shop VV Rouleaux, which is located just off Sloane Square, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to visit The Kings Road Market located in the Duke of York Square.
First impressions were good. It appeared to be a larger and better presented market than my fav Barnes market. But style does not equal substance in this case. It is a great market for international specialty foods. Having the usual suspects: bowls of olives, fresh pasta, cheeses etc. We tried a few items from the Rainforest Food stall, their ginger juice is unreal. But, there was a lack of simple fruit & veg, which is actually what I go to the market to buy. So, I came away pretty much empty handed. (Apart from my ribbon purchase, £30 later ouch!)
Rounded off the day with a divine latte from The Pantry in Old York Rd. Best Coffee all week!

Heading out for the day....
