Bring me sunshine — Sunday 7 April, FEAST is back

South London’s favour­ite com­munity mar­ket is back with a fresh new look on Sunday 7 April 2013, 10am — 4pm.

The West Nor­wood FEAST is like no other mar­ket, being entirely run by local people through a net­work of volun­teers with the sup­port and fund­ing of Lam­beth Coun­cil and the Great­er Lon­don Author­ity.

The monthly out­door mar­ket is more than just the exchange of money for goods — it’s a cel­eb­ra­tion of the diversity, tal­ent and entre­pren­eur­i­al skills of the area. As such, we com­mis­sioned local artists, illus­trat­ors, sign writers and car­penters to cre­ate our new design and sig­nage.

High­lights for Sunday 7 April include:

Retro Vil­lage — out­side Rosebery’s Auc­tion House — the Retro traders have spent the last few months cur­at­ing their col­lec­tions, come down early to browse their unique pieces from Lady­bird books to vin­tage kit­chenalia. The Record Man will be spin­ning discs all day and if you fancy a cup of cof­fee why not try Try­en­core Cof­fee, pos­sibly the green­est cof­fee van in the UK!

The Food Fair — out­side St. Luke’s Church — deli­cious local pro­duce to eat on the go includ­ing hot pud­dings as well as cakes! All day break­fasts come to FEAST with the Ori­gin­al Fry-Up Mater­i­al, who make their own saus­ages, served with eggs in a muffin. There will also be flat­breads, vegan kebabs, pulled pork and much more on the day.

Artis­ans — on Chats­worth Way — hand­made jew­ellery, toys, baby clothes, screen prin­ted items and digit­al prints of the local area. Blingy­abike will be at the Artis­ans Hub provid­ing free bike repairs as well as the chance to ‘pimp up’ your bike, board or scoot­er.

Fresh ‘n’ Green — junc­tion of Nor­wood Road/York Hill/Lancaster Aven­ue — pre­vi­ously known as Garden­ers Corner, FEAST now brings more stalls selling fresh pro­duce as well as plants and herbs, includ­ing stalls from the Gig­gly Pig, Tiger Spring Tea, Peeps Treats, and Core Juice. Local Greens will be launch­ing their new col­lec­tion point out­side Beam­ish and McGlue offer­ing free tast­ings of wild gar­lic dip.

There is more.……

Clas­sic­al cros­sov­er wor­ship artist, Mari­ette Dav­ina, will be per­form­ing inside St. Luke’s at 2pm. The West Nor­wood & Dul­wich Rock Choir will be singing their hearts out on the steps of St. Luke’s at 3pm. Local musi­cian Ric Stir­fried will be per­form­ing at Retro Vil­lage at 2pm. Children’s activ­it­ies include a Treas­ure Trail with a belated East­er treat, South Lam­beth Play Part­ners will be at the Food Fair, plus children’s activ­it­ies at all Hubs. FEAST HQ will be at the Food Fair, so do pop by to find out how FEAST is run and how you can get involved.

The only thing we haven’t man­aged to organ­ise is the weath­er, so fin­gers crossed for sun­shine!
