Northcote Road Market

Last weekend, I was at a bit of a loose end on Sunday. There were engineering works on, and the idea of travelling didn't really appeal to me. So I decided to go out for some lunch and take a walk to Northcote Road market for a bit of a browse.


I started off getting some lunch and reading the papers for a bit in Whole Foods. They've just introduced a new salad bar system and I was dying to try it out. I dived right in, and got spanish tofu, cold salmon, broccoli, roasted aubergine and courgette, feta, olives and spicy hummus dip. I also have an inability to go to Whole Foods without getting a smoothie, so I got a vitamin-c packed pineapple, apple, carrot and ginger one. They'd decorated for Halloween and it was so cute!! My salad was amazing, but a little bit pricey because it's done by weight..I think they're meal deal options are probably better value. It was so yummy though I don't really mind.


After lunch I took a long walk along Northcote road, stopping to admire all the different stalls- food, flowers, clothes- it was a little market but so nice! I also walked a long way up to Northcote Road antiques market...and wandered around promptly falling in love with everything and working out if I could logistically get an Edwardian oak chest into a taxi and up the stairs into my flat. Needless to say, I didn't buy anything! 

I stopped at the flower stall on the way home for some tulips. I asked the man where the nearest cash point was, and he said "What are you talking about? We take card! Contactless!". I think I've seen it all now and will give up on cash altogether. 

Such a nice Sunday.
