Who knew? Outside Kings Cross there was a food market this evening - cheeses, and cakes, and variegated pastries and pasties and other goodies. Unfortunately I had a suitcase in tow, and was gingerly carrying a bag and backpack as well (wet plate collodion glass; camera, etc.) And it was heavy. And I was hot (the temperature no longer belonged to chilly Lincoln) - so I didn't buy anything. But what an opportunity - what a great situation - and there are plans afoot, I gather, to open more open air food markets all over London. So even if farmers' markets in the sense of fresh produce are not all over the place, LA style, these are a wonderful innovation (I've been to the one by the Southbank complex before - but that's not as regularly handy as this ...).
