Sloane Square Market

Welcome to the Sloane Square Market! Located in Chelsea, this is one of London's fancy food markets. It's a total cluster-eff of people until around two, and then it's all yours to move around, take some photos...and then eat eat eat.

This stall made me wish I had a sweet tooth...but if any of you would like some chocolate-covered banana raisins or yogurt-coated almonds, let me know! This vendor had something for EVERYONE. Though I will admit I ended up going for the chocolate-covered honeycombs...I'm only HUMAN, after all...


And for those of you who crave salty over sweet...




A solid half--if not more--of the vendors here make fresh food to eat on the spot. There is an overwhelmingly wonderful selection...from savory pies to Thai curry to Morrocan tagine to Indian to sausage sandwiches...it is nearly impossible to decide what to eat. So of course I must return every Saturday.


mmmm...tea....


This is the girl who sells the tea. Have you ever SEEN such a nice face?? Be honest. I think we're going to be bff's soon, because I'm going to begin stalking her every Saturday until she breaks down and starts to hang out with me. And then someday we'll look back and laugh, "Remember how we met when you were taking photos of my tea??" "It feels like just yesterday!"

Take your pick--do you prefer a certain apple varietal? A certain press? Or maybe you like pear juice or blackcurrant? I ended up getting a single-serving sized mini-bottle for a pound and I totally sucked it dry within seconds...I really should've gone for the larger bottle...ah, well! Next Saturday, right?

And this was my lunch! I eventually settled on the chicken tikka masala at the Indian stall with a serving of vegetable curry that was so spicy it made my nose run. But then the apple juice cooled me back down again...it was PERFECT.

Great fun! That's what I call soul food.

btw, the white background was a good choice and complements your photos.
