I am home after an incredibly good fun but exhausting day at Marmite Lover’s underground farmer’s and craft market!
None of us will be as tired as kirsten who worked long into last night and from early this morning with little or no help apart from Audrey and Ms Marmite Lover’s daughter.
You must go try it as a food and buying experience next time it is staged, it is so unique.
I was there selling my makes but how can you resist the delicious Brownies of Happy Kitchen (thanks Audrey you are a dynamo!), or devine beetroot chutney from House of Chutney (thanks Sarah & Emily), or the yummiest bread I’ve had in ages (Make & Bake). Cakes to die for by Made by Katie, wonderful alcholic fruity drinks from Hand to Mouth Kitchen and The Deli Station cheese from Joanna’s travels to some intriguing places
Ali & Sarah of Bristol Vintage did a roaring trade in cake stands and tea sets and provided myself and V (my wonderful friend and helper) with very good conversation and company. Ali, please let me know if your pooches doggerchief’s don’t fit and I will swap for you!
There are lots of budding supper clubs that were selling their wares and it is something I must try after such glowing recommendations.
It is held in a huge ground floor flat in Kilburn with access all areas bar one. There is a bonfire, a barbeque, any number of different foods (all of which are divine), vintage crockery and handy makes.
It has been a hugely rewarding day and very entertaining. I have met some incredibly interesting people and have some commissions (be they a tea cosy to hide a rude teapot when mum visits, cushions or customises aprons for Hiromi (well done to her lovely hubby for looking out for her and making the introduction).
I hope people enjoy their tinyinc buys or gifts and I look forward to doing it again if I am lucky enough to be invited back by Ms Marmite Lover.
