Covent Garden Night Market 2008

Covent Garden night markets are back and in full swing for 2008, from 3pm-10pm on Thursdays and 12pm-9pm on Fridays throughout August. My 3 top picks from last Friday are...

1. Tasty pigeon and peach sausages from the lovely lady at Manor Farm Game - if you can't make it to the night market then they can also be found on Sundays at Marylebone and various other markets all listed on their comprehensive website.

2. Delicious cheeses from the very nice chap at Norbiton Fine Cheese Co. - I snapped up three (and a beautiful olive wood cheeseboard). It's always nice to get a personal recommendation and know that people have a passion for their produce.

3. Unfortunately I had already feasted on a so-so cupcake by the time I saw these so-so-cute owl shaped shortbreads from the Cinnamon Tree Bakery. I wished I had been wise and saved myself for them instead!
Tasty fudge from a grumpy man!
Jewel like tomatoes straight from the Isle of Wight.

I missed out on the celebrity chef last week, but the schedule for the upcoming dates is:

15th August: Hairy Bikers

22nd August: Willie Harcourt-Cooze

29th August: Fergus Henderson
