London: We Go To West Norwood Feast

October 7, 2012

We Went To West Norwood Feast

We recently went to the West Norwood Feast – have you been? Here’s why it’s fun for parents and babies, especially if you’re local to south-east London.

As I’ve mentioned, teething = bad, and after a pretty testy night we were all feeling a bit tired and irritable today. The best solution for dealing with this, we’ve found, is to just get out of the house. It works every time, doesn’t it?

As it was a Sunday the local food festival and farmers market, the West London Feast, was onso the three of us took a walk as the West Norwood Feast was on.

Sunday At West Norwood

The West Norwood Feast is a local London Sunday farmers market and food and craft event. It’s described as a ‘volunteer powered street market’ – held on the first weekend of every month in the grounds of the church on Norwood Road, and despite living really close by we’ve never been before. There are craft stalls, and food stalls, selling fresh food and food you can takeaway.

There were also lots of people!

It’s an event that’s been set up to support local charities, and this month it was supporting local food donation charity the Norwood Food bank. Which is a sad and much needed sign of the times really.

We had a long walk around around all the stalls. We ended up buying a cake for the adults – a rice cake for one of us – and procured some pie for dinner this evening.

Once we got home, suitably soothed, Eliza and I then had a nap, which is always good. Did everyone have a good weekend?

PS – remember that you can now ‘like’ the vaguely new Facebook page for A Baby on Board (if you like!) And also read my post on everything we love about Crystal Palace.
