Balham Farmers’ Market

Address:

Henry Cavendish Primary School, Hydethorpe Road, Balham, SW12 0JA

Featured stalls:

Midgham Farm

Nigel sells the milk from his Guernsey cows raw, unpasteurised, unhomogenised with nothing added or taken away, a fantastic natural product. He also brings his beef, rose veal and fresh free range eggs to the markets.


Wild Country Organics

Run by Dr Adrian Izzard, who pioneered growing organic vegetables in glasshouses without heating. In the summer, they produce organic tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, aubergines, leafy veg, herbs and salad leaves. In winter it’s rocket, pak choi, celery, mustard greens, various herbs; coriander, sorrel, parsley, land cress, etc.

The Tomato Stall

Paul Thomas grows a mix of organic and conventional, traditional heirlooms and super-sweet mini tomato varieties and bring them direct from the glasshouses to the Farmers’ Market, often arriving with fruit that was picked just the day before. Tomatoes are allowed to fully ripen on the vine, allowing the natural sugars to develop and maximising flavour.

Bread Bread Bakery

This bakery specialises in long fermentation sourdough bread with flavours that are enhanced by the use of organic and stone-ground flours, sourced from Cann Mills in Dorset and Shipton Mill. A robust 500 year-old starter dough - inherited from their original Franco Manca pizza founders - offers maximum digestibility and gives their product a much longer shelf life than many sourdoughs.

Well Dressed Crab

The Well Dressed Crab sell high quality crab, lobster, hand dived scallops and fresh fish from sites across Dorset. All produce is selected directly from the day boats they work with in Poole quay. Their aim is to select, sort and sell their seafood in a timely fashion so that the customer can enjoy extremely fresh and sustainable 'fruits of the sea'.


Raw milk and cream from Midgham Farm in Hampshire, fresh fish, biodynamic and organic vegetables, Laycroft free range poultry and beef. Seasonal game, fresh juice and fruit, home made cakes and plenty of space to sit and chat over a coffee.
