Venn Street Market is a local community food market every Saturday working directly with farmers and small independent producers enabling our customers to meet face to face with the growers and makers of the foods available each week.
With a strong ethos of ensuring high quality and fair prices, the market guarantees all goods are locally sourced and seasonal.
Our produce is harvested fresh each day from our Lincolnshire farm and we chose our vegetable varieties for taste rather than yield. When in season, leaf crops such as lettuce, salad leaves, spinach, chards, kale and the herbs are picked first thing in the morning. This is followed by tomatoes, peppers and aubergines and then peas and beans. Later in the day the root, squash and other crops will be harvested.
Kent’s first organic and biodynamic produce farm established in 1953, offering fresh seasonal salads, herbs, vegetables, eggs and fresh apple juices from the farm.
The Farm grows traditional varieties that have a better flavour, and have recently diversified in selling wild and heritage crops. Nearly all the fresh produce sent to the market is harvested just 24 hours before.
Portland Scallop Co are a small independent fishmongers from Chesil Beach in Dorset where they started out a few years back hand-diving for scallops. They offer the best British seasonal fresh fish from the Dorset shores. All fish is caught with net or line fishing and this time of year you can expect to catch a few lobsters and crabs!!
The menu includes: lobster, crab, scallops, rope grown mussels, bass, bream, turbot, lemon & dover sole, makerel pate and crab soup.. and that’s just for starters..
The local Bath Cheese was once well known, and in its heyday was recommended to Admiral Lord Nelson in a letter from his father (dated 1801). We found the recipe in an old grocer’s recipe book. It stipulates that the cheese must be made with full cream milk, that salt be sprinkled on the young cheeses with the aid of a feather, and that the cheese was soft and covered with white mould. Today the Bath Soft Cheese that we make (without the aid of feathers) frequently wins awards and we supply shops and delicatessens all over the country.
As well as our original Bath Soft Cheese we produce a variety of other cheeses: soft, hard and blue. All of them made with old fashioned manual methods which gives the cheeses more flavour.
The Borough Cheese Company sells only one cheese: the French mountain cheese, Comte. In order to get the best Comte we travel to the Franche-Comte in Eastern France every five to six weeks, where we visit Fort St. Antoine home of Marcel Petite, affineurs of Comte cheese. There we select our cheese for sale back in London. See Borough Cheese Co select your cheese.
Une Normande a Londres, run by brothers Franck and Yann Le Blais, bring to many London street markets including Borough Market, the very best artisan cheeses, cured meats and preserves from across France. The heart of their success is their insistence in trading on street markets which allows them to remain close to their customers.
The brothers have a deep knowledge of the French foodie scene inherited from their Camembert producing family and their focus has remained since 1990, when they first arrived in the UK, on natural, ‘clean’ products, manufactured using traditional methods.

Specialising in Lactic Acid Fermentation, our sauerkraut, kimchi and pickles are traditionally cured using natural salt and spices. Fascinated by the taste and smell of sauerkraut and pickles from an early age, I am still excited by them and the magical process of lactic acid fermentation; transforming simple vegetables into something special.
Take the humble cabbage or cucumber, transformed through lacto-fermentation:
Cabbage/cucumber + salt/spices + time = delicious tangy, deep flavoured krauts, kimchis and pickles, plus of course the nutrients, vitamins and minerals, and living cultures essential for a healthy digestive system. Value added indeed.
