  Thread: Farmers' market in the Horniman Gardens
Post: RE: Farmers' market in the Horniman Gardens

Red67 - I do stand corrected. I was simply giving my opinion of what I would like and which I thought was what was being canvased. I will obviously defer to your no-doubt expertise in all things r...

Post: RE: Farmers' market in the Horniman Gardens

Red67 - not sure having a veg stall one day a week at the farmers should really preclude having a shop that would offer a wider range, organic produce and fruit. I am not aware that the veg stall sel...

Post: RE: Farmer market - Blythe Hill fields

That wasnt really what I was suggesting and personally feel it should be a mixture of both. All I am saying is if we want a deli or coffee stall we should offer that to the local businesses first.

SLondon - In case of any confusion I am not suggesting that only "local" people should be allowed to trade in SE23. The market promotes itself as locally sourced ie "A locally sourced, locally sol...

Hoona - I totally agree (as you will see from my posts on that thread) Any market should run with the support of the local food traders and if it increases footfall should be used to promote all the ...

Post: RE: Farmers' market in the Horniman Gardens

I admire the optimism but the thread has 139 posts so I suspect there is a bit of a debate. There is loads of space at the market - so not really sure why any of the locals who want a stall can't h...

I can fully understand why some of the stall holders are voicing concerns as it has divided the locals and I can only think their concerns will increase if the talk of setting up another farmers marke...

Fan of the market and local shops. However I thought the idea was to support local businesses. I loved the grocers - great selection and price but they are from Lincolnshire - is that really locally s...

Great to see other interest in a farmers/food market. However - wouldn't Blythe hill would be a better location for one as the nursery site is surely too close to the horniman? Seems pretty close ...

Well said Cheeky. For an area that purports great community spirit we do seem a tad critical at times.

I would be very surprised that they really care what the community wants. We would probably want a great independant business to take on the lease but they just want a well known tenant who can tak...

Playing devils advocate - they are probably just waiting to get one or two other anchor tenants on the parade with strong covenants and then probably/hopefully sell it on. Fingers crossed they may ...
