There is a new Slow Food and Living Market that takes place every Sunday at the prestigious Rosewood Hotel in central London. This is the first dedicated Slow Food market that has opened in London since the original Slow market which was located near the Southbank Centre on the south side of the Thames closed some years ago.
Rosewood Hotel group believes strongly in the principles behind the Slow Food movement so their team together with the help of Slow Food London recently set up the new market in the courtyard of their outstanding Hotel building in Holborn and the result is an absolutely outstanding array of stands offering a huge range of artisan produced foods.
The market launched on Sunday 1st March and Shane Holland from Slow food London was present to give a short talk about the Slow Food movement and the idea behind this new Slow Food and Living market in London.
The weekly Sunday market is open from 10.30am until 3pm and at the opening there were are over thirty stallholders all of which have been selected as offering exceptional quality produce, and it is planned to increase the number of artisan producers as the year progresses.
One of the main aims of the market is to reconnect the urban community in central London with good wholesome foods produced by artisan farmers and producers who have a dedication and a passion about the food they provide to consumers.
The Hotel wants to make the Slow Food and Living market the destination of choice for consumers living in London, where they know that they can purchase their weekly food needs all in one place.
All the producers at the market have been vetted by Slow Food in London to make sure that they adhere to the Slow Food ethos and this makes the market is a great new and unique addition to the vibrant food culture in London which we are sure will prove very popular over the coming months and years.
Slow Food Norwich and Anglia are very pleased to have been asked by the Rosewood Hotel to set up and run a dedicated Slow Food stand each Sunday at the market, the purpose of which is to promote both the Slow Food national and international organisation, its ethos and also English Slow Food producers who come from not only from East Anglia but also other regions of England.
Later on this year on every other Sunday we will also be having one off guest visit by a Slow Food producer from England, they will take over a stand at the market for one day to promote their produce and their local Slow Food region, we also have plans to hold similar visits from Slow Food producers and groups in Italy and Malta, with possible visits planned from other interested Slow Food groups who are based throughout Europe.
