Pimlico Framer Market, Orange Square, Pimlico road, SW1
Although Pimlico Farmers Market is a smaller, it is set in a delightfully leafy location and one particular stall that stood out had a vibrant display of vegetables such as courgettes, aubergines and tomatoes by Wild Country Organics.
Islington Farmers Market, Chapel Market, Penton Street, N1
The oldest of the Farmers markets in London, Islington can get very busy as they have gorgeous seasonal flowers which are always popular and you will need to get there early if you don’t want to be disappointed. They also have stalls with tasty food such as boeuf bourgignon, gallettes and vegetable strudels.
