Bandstand Terrace, Horniman Museum Gardens,
100 London Road, SE23 3PQ
Every Saturday 9am – 1.30pm
The Horniman Museum is one of London’s most interesting venues with a fascinating Anthropological archive and collection of musical instruments. On Saturday’s the garden of the museum transforms itself into a very different anthropological experiment as the foodies Southeast London congregate to source delicious essentials directly from independent and local producers.
It’s a great location and now attracts stalls selling seasonal fruit and vegetables, artisan organic bread, cakes, cheese, pies, scotch eggs, freshly squeezed juices, herbal infusions, organic meat, salads and herbs. On intermittent weeks you will also find free-range salami and handcrafted, ethical chocolates plus other guest stalls selling craft beer, preserves, kimchi and plants. There are also some street food stalls offering anything from falafel to crepes – the surrounding gardens are a wonderful place to enjoy a picnic.
