It’s back-to-school time so Sunday 7th September will see the return of all your favourite stalls home from their holidays: you can buy the best-ever bread once more from Ruben’s Bakehouse; your Sunday lamb or rose veal from C&S Stileman; those moreish spiced nuts from The Nutty Lady; all your fruit and veg from Beech Hill Farm; and a great choice of beers from Real Ale Ltd to wash it all down!
We’re also happy to welcome a couple of new-to-Kew stallholders. Hunts Hill Farm will join our regular roster of meat suppliers, with free-range pork, chicken and ducks and grass-fed beef, plus eggs and a variety of sausages. And in the baked goods area Mandy’s Muffins come in a range of flavours both sweet and savoury, for breakfast, lunch or any time.
Our charity stall will be taken by St Luke’s Church, Kew which is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year. Originally built in 1889, the big Victorian church was redesigned in 1983 to create a community space, resulting in the striking blend of old and new that is such a feature of The Avenue.
Our music this month will be courtesy of Kew resident Rupert Webster, whose five-strong band (with occasional guests) Rupert’s Blues are great favourites on the local circuit. With influences and repertoire ranging from Robert Johnson, Eric Clapton and Peter Green to R&B, it sounds like music worth staying for over a bite of lunch. A venison burger from Winterbourne Game maybe, or one of Abycina’s fantastically flavourful dishes…?
Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday 7th September from 10am and 2pm!
