Thanks to Mark Atkinson at the borough’s Street Trading Office, many local residents and market traders in Kensington and Chelsea have been able to enjoy the magazine. The borough boasts a rich and vibrant local food culture, represented at famous Portobello and Golborne road markets where British produce can be found all year round. But there is also a lot more than these popular markets. Fresh Carts, a scheme to get more fruit and veg sold around the capital which launched in May (see our Fresh Carts article for more details), will have four sites in the borough: South Kensington Tube, Kensington High Street, St Charles Hospital and Portobello Road market. The London Farmer’s Market on Bute Street, South Kensington Farmers’ Market, is another foodie destination. And the recently launched Friday ‘Portobello Pantry’ showcases fantastic local fare from the likes of Norbiton Fine Cheese, Montrose Bakery, the Wild Game Company and many others. On top of all this we can look forward to the borough’s third annual English Apple Festival in October.
