About Urban Food Fortnight

Urban Food Fortnight 2018 took place between 20th September and 7th October and was London Food Link’s seventh annual celebration of the fabulous food and drink being grown, made, cooked and saved locally.

The fortnight connected restaurants and retailers with London’s edible gardens and small producers, with 100 events showcasing the best food and drink on offer in the city with special menus, one-off events and supper clubs.

Urban Food Fortnight began life as Urban Food Week in 2012. It is run to celebrate London’s gastronomic talent, giving everyone the opportunity to try genuinely local food, including delicacies such as Tottenham made cheese, Stratford sourced fish, Enfield reared lamb and Hackney grown salad.

Each year the packed programme of events sees urban growers celebrating their gardens with harvest feasts, pop-up dinners, botanical cocktail nights and foraging walks. To date we 've had hundreds of restaurants, growers, small batch producers and beekeepers participating in Urban Food Fortnight.

Throughout the year the London Food Link team continues to work to support local food businesses in the capital, through matchmaking small batch suppliers with restaurants and retailers, as well as lots of promotion through our magazine The Jellied Eel.
