Hackney Homemade

The details are simple: every Saturday local artisan producers of home-made food get together to sell their stuff on the church grounds opposite Hackney Central station - this is Hackney Homemade and it's rivalling some of the other more established set ups in the area, like the up and coming Chatsworth and the long running Broadway market in London fields, AND, I'm pleased to announce that Hot Plantain will be there as of this Saturday 22nd selling the sweeter side of things, so think cakes, biscuits, flapjacks, brownies all given a more exotic, ethnic twist. I'm incorporating all the great flavours of Ghana and West Africa to create some new and exciting goodies and you can be sure that plantains will be making an appearance in some format! I'm keeping pretty quiet about this, so you'll just have to make the schlep over to Hackney to investigate this fab market. I'll be following up with a post about my first day, complete with tempting photos. See you soon.
