After being on the go non stop for the last 2 weeks, I was really looking forward to having just one thing on my agenda today (apart from a lie in) and that was to head to the new Tottenham Green Market. It started last week and will be around for the next 6 weekends- including my favourite food stall, Sambal Shiok. Tottenham Green is just outside Tottenham Town Hall and the Bernie Grant Arts Centre-where all the food and produce stalls were lined up.
We bought some steaks from Marsh Produce and taste tested some olives from Pickles & Brine before taking away a generous portion of chilli olives with us. The Green was looking lovely- lush grass, loads of food stalls and a folk band playing some tunes. Definitely not the kind of scene anyone pictures in Tottenham- and that’s what I love! So much is happening around this area- we tried a new tapas place last week and it was great! There’s been new restaurants and shops opening and I hope this market is set to stay.
Whilst one burger was enough for me, the bottomless pit that is Robin went to get more food. I found him at Santana Grill ordering a burrito, and I sat on the grass and made friends with Moppet the Spaniel
He came over for a scratch before turning his back on me to chew his bone-the more I tried to tempt him with scratches and belly rubs, the firmer his butt stayed put. Well played Moppet- I will return to make you love me! I was full but there were so many other places I wanted to try.
Everything coming out from White Rabbit looked amazing, and I tried to talk myself into getting a steak sandwich from Beef & Liberty but then I reminded myself that I could return on another Saturday. If you live in the North London area, I really recommend paying it a visit! It’ll be around every Saturday until the 2nd August. You may find me there stuffing my face with melted grilled cheese…
