Slow Food & Living Market

A few Sundays ago I decided to check out the Slow Food & Living Market, which is hosted in the inner courtyard of Rosewood Hotel in Holborn. There are so many food markets all over London, but what sets this market apart from others is that all of the produce is local, sustainable and organic. There are a variety of stalls selling a whole host of different products from meat and fish to bread, fruit, vegetables, tea, coffee, chocolate and home wares.

Don’t expect to go and nibble your way around the market though, as there’s not a whole lot of food ready for you to eat (my brother made this mistake!).

All of the vendors were fabulous but my two favourites were Inmidtown and Seaforth Chocolate Co.


This honey is made from hives on London rooftops – some of which are on the hotel of the Rosewood, which I personally think is so unbelievably cool! Inmidtown were also selling salad leaves, which were also grown on the rooftop – talk about local produce!

Seaforth Chocolate Co.

Seaforth Chocolate Co. get their cocoa beans from the Dominican Republic and they come over on a sailboat into the Isle of Wight where the beans are processed into delicious chocolate – my favourite flavour is the dark chocolate and almond. The packaging is  so beautiful too!

The market is open every Sunday from 10.30am-3pm. It’s a short walk from Holborn station and two of my favourite places – Holborn Grind and Hubbard & Bell. Why not grab a spot of brunch after your visit? After all, it’s what the weekend is made for!
