London’s biggest celebration of urban food is back
Get ready to dive into everything good about food in London this Urban Food Fortnight. From 20th September to 7th October, Londoners will be treated to the biggest ever menu of good food events, celebrating all that is grown, made, cooked, saved, foraged and – even bigger this year – fermented in the capital.
