Brand manager Charlie Hicks, was kind enough to give us a tour around the whole sale market where we got to try some of the delicious ingredients and find out more about how they work closely with some of Britain’s best growers to get the best quality produce to your plate.

As well as all the great suppliers they had chefs, Adrian John Kirikmaa and Romy Gill cooking much needed sausage sandwiches early in the morning and giving cooking demos later in the day.

We even got to see our own dedicated shelves where we found our latest delivery of beautiful English tomatoes ( which Scott was pretty pleased with! )

Not got much time at lunch?

As well as our daily lunch time offerings of delectable dishes, we are now selling a range of sandwiches that follow our usual ethos of sustainability, with different fillings including vegetarian and vegan options cooked up daily by head chef, Christabel Courtauld.

Our sandwiches are priced between £3-£4 and are made using our own bread from the The Old Market Assembly Bakery.  Why not treat yourself to some take away cake for dessert? Or if you have a little more time get yourself the ultimate lunch time combination of soup and a sandwich.
