Ever spent hours traipsing through hundreds of stalls to find a few things you like? The Archway Market experience is rather more relaxing, and there’s plenty to taste and savour from its cosy selection of stalls. Plus there aren't many speciality food markets where you can browse a massive bookstall...
Manager Stephanie says the traders now are the most charming she’s ever had. ’It’s the ones who have fallen in love with Archway’s fantastic people who have the best-loved businesses’
If you enjoy cooking, there are ingredients to tempt with ‘Ted’s Tasty Veg’’ all seasonal, and from a Lincolnshire family farm. The flavour of proper carrots is wonderful and the Marfona potatoes make the best roasties. And besides the veg, ‘Celtic’ provide an organic bakery and you won’t get away from Raw Cheese Power without a thorough tasting, until you find one you want. It won’t take long...
Marsh Produce provide the free range meat from their family farm in Kent where animals are reared to the highest welfare standards. Because it comes directly to you, it’s great value. The Hog Roast stall has local legendary status; its fennel and rosemary marinated pork draws an impressive queue.
Sweetness come in the form of Portuguese pastries, organic brownies, and ‘Vegan Sweet Tooth’ cook up a great range of fruit gateaux.
The crepes are cooked in front of you by a Frenchman, the charcuterie sliced by an Italian connoisseur, the fabulous feta pies and veggie specialities home-baked by Greek sisters. It’s the personal touch and expertise that makes the market so worth a visit.
Archway Market is open every Saturday 10am - 5pm, at the corner of Holloway Rd and St Johns Grove (outside Budgens)
