Lewisham Council says:
The Giffin Street Food Fair launches in Deptford on Saturday 5 October, beneath the 'his ‘n’ hers mural' next to the library.
On the first Saturday of every month shoppers can sample a mouth-watering array of street food and drink from local chefs, bakers and traders including: jerk chicken wraps and fish cakes from The Jerk and InnaPikkle, deli-style breads and pastries from Elvira’s Secret Pantry and freshly squeezed natural fruit juices and smoothies from That Natural Stuff.
Many of the street traders are graduates from the Council’s trainee market trader scheme and have gone on to launch successful food businesses.
Emanuela Mansi, founder of Pastificio Mansi, who will be trading at the food fair, said: “Over the past year I’ve traded at markets in Sydenham and Catford and the atmosphere has always been superb. I’m really looking forward to trading in Giffin Square – and I hope people will come down and help support all of the traders”.
In addition to hot food and drink, there’ll be music, entertainment and a seating area at the monthly event which runs from 10am–4pm on the first Saturday of the month.
The food fair, is one of a number of projects run by Lewisham Council, with funding from the Mayor of London’s Outer London Fund, to enhance Deptford Market for shoppers, businesses and residents.
