Slumming it in delicious style never tasted so good! Considered to be Chelsea's worst kept secret and an excellent spot for farm fresh shopping and outdoor dining, the Chelsea Farmers Market is situated just off the uber fashionable King's Road in the perpetually posh West London neighbourhood of Chelsea.
From handmade sushi to squeezed-just-for-you fruit juices, the market beckons with a range of artisan foods and independently farmed produce. Shucked and served Oysters, gourmet burgers, free range eggs, rare breed pork, grass fed beef and street food vendors from around the world ... and on and on and so (scrumptiously) on … the market combines the best of English farming with all the cosmopolitan delights that big city foodies might expect.
A couple of particularly noteworthy vendors to keep an eye out, and save some room in your tummy, for include:
Slow roast pork pie with stuffing and rhubarb? Yes please! A fairly new enterprise, Timmy's sets up a stall at Chelsea Farmers Market every Saturday. If you can't catch 'em on Saturdays, Timmy's Pies are also available at Harvey Nichols, WholeFoods and the Peoples' Supermarket with even more snazzy outlets being lined up. With a range of seasonal and gourmet pies coming in at under £4 each (that's roughly less than $6), Timmy's pies are a satisfyingly filling bargain. Coming across anything edible for less than five quid in Chelsea is truly an endeavour.
Making quality Caribbean food for more than a quarter century, the folks behind Rummanco know a
thing or two about getting the spice and seasoning just right for a tropically inspired snack or lunch break. They're super friendly too – the only jerk will be the chicken in an over-stuffed takeaway box. Massive patties cost £2.50. Deal!
Chelsea Farmers Market is a tasty destination in and of itself, but also makes a great pit stop. Surrounded by the best of the Chelsea boutiques and more, and a mere few minutes' walk from Sloane Square Underground Station, the market is a definite checkpoint for any stylish shopper's sojourn. Chelsea Farmers Market spills out from Duke of York Square, an upscale shopping centre that's home to name brand outlets such as Taschen, Banana Republic, Zara and Space.NK. And if, for some reason, you weren't able to find everything you were looking for at the market, it's set up just outside the popular and exceptionally well stocked Partridge's supermarket and across the road from the highly regarded Peter Jones department store. Chelsea Farmers Market is literally on the doorstep of one of the world's leading art galleries, the Saatchi Gallery, as well. With free entry to exhibitions featuring some of contemporary art's most noted and notorious works, it's well worth a visit.
Chelsea Farmers Market runs daily but the best time to visit and experience the fullest range of vendors is Saturday from late morning to mid afternoon. Find out more at kingsroad.co.uk/chelseafarmersmarket.
