"Yes, this is why people like me can't get a space at the market at the moment. It's very frustrating since I started my food stall so I could trade here."

They claim to to be a sister organisation to a Barnet based recycling charity. The authorities have been alerted and it is hoped that the situation will be resolved soon.

Changes to Alexandra Palace Farmers' market

The events team at Ally Pally have told City and Country Farmers Markets that they're proposing to hold their street food events twice a month. This means that they want the market at Alexandra Palace to stick to fresh produce only and have limited the number of stalls selling hot food.  The new rules came in earlier this week and there's a piece about the changes in the Ham & High. http://www.hamhigh.co.uk/news/outrage-over-changes-to-alexandra-palace-farmers-market-1-5282693

We have walked in the quite high country between Broxbourne Woods and Hertford a number of times, at different times of year, and would recommend exploring its quiet and gentle mixture of wooded and open landscape. Brickendon, with its large village green, lined with weather-boarded houses, is a good…
