Easter Egg Hunt at Brook Green Farmer's Market

Brook Green farmer's Market - every Saturday
Brook Green Food Market and Kitchen will host an Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday.

Children's entertainment starts at 11.30 am and will include "face painting and an Easter egg hunt for all ages".

When did the market begin?
Brook Green Farmer's Market started up in 2014 and has built up slowly, with more stalls being added over time.

How big is it?
The market is modestly sized, with around two dozen stalls, but it is growing over time, and getting more diverse. Things got a little slow over the winter - but now that the sun is shining again, more people are coming and there are more stalls, with more varied produce.

What can you buy?
Brook Green farmer's market
There are lots of stalls, including people selling fresh eggs, fresh organic meat, great coffee, fresh-baked bread, quiches and tarts, and home-brewed beer.

There is home-made pasta, home-made quiches and pies, fresh fish and organic milk and cheeses.

Who shows up?
Plenty of locals come along. Over time you get to know the faces at the market, and you find out who has the best stuff.

What about kids?
There are tables and chairs with board games to keep children entertained, and there is also a day care centre next to the market where parents can change nappies and take kids to the loo. Best of all there is a mini-playground with climbing frames and other play equipment. So, you can take your kids and keep them happy.
