As many of you may have seen, the government recently announced that open air markets, such as ours, are to be permitted to re-open from next week. We’re working on ways to do so in a way that is safe for our staff, our traders and you guys, our customers. Once we’ve worked out the how, what and when of our re-opening, we’ll be sure to publicly and relentlessly let everyone aware.
Until that happens, we’re continuing to support our traders by letting you know about the products they’re making and delivering. So, once again, here are five top notch items we’re pretty sure, if Levy Market were up and running as normal, would’ve caught your eye and ended up in your shopping basket.
This week we bring you a handful of purchases loosely connected by the theme of ‘international’. Going on holiday may not be possible for any of us at the moment, so here’s a chance to bring the sunshine into your home while doing your bit to support a raft of small independent local businesses.
1. Momos from Little Yeti
There are two kinds of people in this world: those who love Nepalese momos and those who just haven’t got round to trying them yet. These succulent, spicy dumplings, cooked and delivered by one of our most popular traders, are where adventurous eating meets comfort food.
2. Bolo de Bolacha from Que Delícia
Que Delícia‘s delivery menu is an absolute riot of traditional Portuguese dishes. But this obscenely stacked, gratuitously creamy, cookie-loaded cake is the incontestable king of continental puddings. Delivery is on Friday with orders needing to be in by 10pm Thursday, so move quick!
3. Trittico of wines from VinoBuono
While we’re closed VinoBuono, which sources wines from small vineyards across the regions of Italy, is continuing to offer free same-day home delivery. Here is a selection of expertly selected tip-top bottles, perfect for pairing with your three-course Friday night lockdown feast: a Pinot Grigio Friulano, a Cabernet Sauvignon and a Prosecco, all for a mere £25.
4. Endangered Animal Art Print from Pippa and Paper
None of us is going on safari any time soon. So why not transform a section of your home into a wildlife scene with these prints from Pippa and Paper, one of our wonderful art traders. 15% off all profits from this print to the WWF to help save these amazing animals.
5. Donation to Inspire
For many, the lack of travel is much more acute. Although most of us are permitted to exercise and meet one another, our vulnerable and older local residents are facing yet another week indoors. Inspire are raising money to support our community with just £10 helping to repair an old laptop so they can get online and connect with loved ones.
If there’s a stall you can’t see on there make sure to check back as we’re updating the list every day. Or, if there’s a trader who’s missing and whose stuff you feel you simply cannot live without drop us a line and we’ll see if we can find out what they’re up to.
You can also find regular recommendations on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts where you can keep abreast of all the latest Levy Market goings on.
