28th March: The Underground Farmers and Craft market at The Underground Restaurant.
I welcome other supperclub hosts who'd like to sell their goods or give cooking demonstrations. I also would love people who make food, drink, or kitchenware, who grow things, who sew, who bake, pickle, ferment, to sell, demonstrate and explain what they are doing. I particularly would like to encourage Londoners who forage wild food, make honey or cheese or smoke fish, whittle or weave, who have vintage (shabby chic style) kitchenalia to come and sell.
This will be a fusion of Etsy/Borough market type goods but I'm hoping also to attract people who would be doing this for the first time. You don't have to have alot to sell! Vendors can be given tables or spots all over the house and garden. Starting at 2pm going on till 7pm. No fee for vendors/demonstrators, £5 entrance fee for others. Free parking at weekends. There will be refreshments and snacks for sale. Vendors please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to chat about your participation. Attendees can book at wegottickets.com
Looking for a piano tuner, some gardening help, volunteers for prepping and front of house, pro chefs/cooks who want to cook a course, and recipe testers, who have normal ovens, for my forthcoming book.
