An interview with Deen City Farm.

Today the urban farmer visited Deen City Farm in South Wimbledon.

The Farm has 220 different types of animals and offers horse riding lessons for those in the City.

We spoke to Shannon to understand what she does on a daily basis, why urban farming in London is so important and her favourite farmyard animal at Deen City.

Deen City Farm has 1,789 followers on Twitter, so if you want to give them a Tweet their handle is @deencityfarm or visit their website here.

We hope you’ve enjoyed this post and plan on visiting the farm!

North London’s Sunday Farmer’s Market

Hidden away in North London, Alexandra Palace Farmer’s Market attracts 3,000 visitors every Sunday. It is City & Country Farmers’ largest market, with more than 40 farmers and bakers on site to sell local produce to the community.

There is local produce sourced which is sold on site for the community, including fresh fruit juice, fish, smoked meats, honey, jam, organic breads, fruit and vegetables from Kent.

There is also a variety of cuisines to try if you’re feeling peckish. These include Moroccan, Indian and Mediterranean food which have all been made from local and fresh produce.

So if you’re stuck for what to do on a Sunday, head down to Ally Pally to connect with local producers and your local community to taste some fresh food & drink!
