VERY LOCAL HONEY at the market this Sunday

10-2:30 Stroud Green School, opposite the fullback,

Hi everyone,

there is a high summer surprise at the market this week: very local honey produced within a mile of the School. Soner Golbas has two hives, the nearest one in his back garden just off the blackstock road. This will be his first market; and since our own Parkland walk beekeeper moved out of London this is the most local honey available commercially to Stroud Green residents.

Boring but important, a note on the fascinating subject of bins. Mr Briggs the bugman has conscientiously arranged for three little wheelie bins to be put out each week, all clearly labelled according to the different kinds of rubbish they should take. (1) waste (2) recycling and (3) food waste/compostable packaging. Now, the third of these should be easily the fullest by the end of the day because almost every single hot food & drink stall uses bio serving material, whether it’s the kaffee culture cups or the paper bags used by the pie stall. Hot food and meat etc is also fine to be thrown in: this isn’t home composting but the council’s commercial facility so you can use it in the same way as you would the brown food waste caddies at home. Most other things (glass/cardboard etc) are recyclable, which means there shouldn’t be very much left for landfill at the end of the day. If you’re unsure about anything - or you notice that any one of the bins is full - just ask Alan B. He loves talking about rubbish…

Finally, and just for fun, here is a list of all the fruit we expect to find at the Perry Court farm stall this Sunday. As the year rolls on the early autumn produce suddenly appears alongside the summer berries making for a glorious mixture of colours and flavours: strawberries, raspberries, cherries, redcurrants, blackcurrants, apricots, plums, discovery apples, blackberries, gooseberries, blueberries, mangoes and passionfruit. (Actually I’m not sure about those last two but all the others are real.)

See you soon,
