The weather is turning chilly but here at Feast, we’ve got a great day planned to warm your cockles.
We will be bringing you our usual great range of street food, arts, crafts, vintage items and local produce across all four Hubs – Village Green, Food Fair, Fresh and Green and Artisans. There’s a handy map, details of our social distancing measures and lots more information below so you can plan your visit. As always our dedicated Feast volunteers will be on hand to help you make the most of your visit. Feast will be as wonderful as ever but we ask you to observe social distancing, stay safe and enjoy our amazing market.
Please be patient, keep your distance and enjoy Feast.
Join us at Village Green to shop, eat, drink and play. Here you’ll find all things sustainable and community focused, on the green area outside West Norwood Leisure Centre. Shop for retro and handmade goods, beauty products, clothing and vintage curios. October brings the welcome return of Clare’s retro stall with all profits going to help refugees in Calais. New Feast trader Bugs Togs has a range of doggy-inspired gifts and face masks. For each mask she sells, she donates one to Kings College Hospital. We also have hot food, delicious cakes, and much more. If you feel peckish you’ll find Warren’s delicious jerk chicken and wonderfully tempting sweet treats from Brett & Bailey.
At our regular Green stall, we are pleased to host the wonderful Open Orchard who will be giving information about their upcoming projects including creating a wildlife meadow and planting fruit trees. Make sure you visit to find out more.
ALSO AT VILLAGE GREEN THIS MONTH:
VEOLIO SMALL ELECTRICAL AND TEXTILE COLLECTION
This month we are also pleased to host Lambeth’s waste management firm Veolia who will be supporting Feast green initiatives by providing a small electrical and textile recycling point. They will be collecting both waste electricals and textiles – items that residents have inevitably been building up over the recent lock down period. For the waste electricals, residents are asked to only bring items that can be carried by foot (i.e. small electrical items), rather than bringing items in cars. The collected electrical items will be sent either for recycling if in unusable condition, or to a local reuse charity if in good condition. For the textiles, this would be aimed at old/unusable textiles to be sent for recycling, rather than reusable or charity shop worthy clothing. There will be two ECO team members on hand at the event to give residents advice on recycling and reuse.
‘Cauldron of Bats’ children’s TAKE AWAY activity to do at home with Movers&Makers. We are thinking about Halloween and this month Movers&Makers will be providing a crafting tutorial online and FREE zero waste craft boxes which you can collect at Feast. Look out for the tutorial on the Feast website and either gather your own materials or collect your craft box to take home from the Movers&Makers stall at the Village Green hub.
For crafting your bat you will need: thin cardboard, fallen twigs, fallen leaves, PVA/glue, paper, scissors, pens. Jessie plans to have a display of the bats in the window of West Norwood Library and Picturehouse for anyone who wants to join in.
We have a wonderful offering of handmade and artisan goods, so come along and treat yourself or make someone else happy.

If you’re feeling peckish, or fancy a treat, you’ll find Cupcake Shop has lots of tasty cakes.

Savoury meals can be found at Curry Cook House offering Pakistani street food including curries with rice, naan, salads and vegetable wraps, or try Offbeat Barbecue’s soft naans filled with oak-smoked brisket or vegetarian grilled halloumi accompanied by salsa, slaw and pickles.
For those with a sweet tooth Bunting and Pops has tasty cake pops. Whilst Brazilian sweet (and savoury) delicacies including chocolate or salted caramel-filled churros at Agua Na Boca live up to the translation of ‘mouthwatering’.
