‘We are so spoiled as Londoners! I love street food and farmers markets – the lively atmosphere, colourful produce and friendly sellers all contribute to the experience. My boyfriend is a talented cook, and we always come away from food markets with enough groceries to feed an army.’

In my basket:Scotch bonnets are the fiery hearts of Brixton, and can be found at almost every grocers in this market. I love the cheese from The Bath Soft Cheese Co, it’s creamy, strong and beautifully packaged. The freshest fish comes from Jeffries and the charming folk at Cannon & Cannon make it impossible to resist sampling a salami or three.

You’re never short of brunch options in Brixton Village or Market Row on a weekend. Federation Coffee is my favourite spot for a caffeine boost. Team it with a breakfast bun from Picks Organic Farm Shop. And, if you’re looking for a gift try a woven basket from Rachel & Malika.’
