From farm to Fork
 (голосов: 0)
From farm to ForkONCE IT WAS HOME TO A FARM, NOW PORTOBELLO ROAD IS CELEBRATED FOR ITS IMPRESSIVE ARRAY OF FOOD.

Fruit and veg lovers are spoilt for choice with the range of produce on offer here on Portobello Road. You'll find the main food market in the middle section of the road - walk north from the Antiques Market or south from the clothes market.

Before 1740, Portobello Road was known as Green's Lane. Portobello Farm was built in the area around Golborne Road. The farming area covered the land at the north end of Portobello - beyond the Westway.

Portobello Market began life in the 19th century as a fresh food market - the antique dealers didn't arrive until the 1960s, along with Britain's first health food shop, Harmony Foods, which pioneered the macrobiotic food movement - which counts Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow as fans.

Food on Portobello Road remains central to the buzz and atmosphere of the area, from the fruit and vegetable stalls with costermongers calling out their wares, to the wonderful hot food stalls nestled among the antiques. You can find food from virtually every continent, a wonderful reminder of the diversity that exists in this celebrated corner of London.

"I'm a fruit and veg girl, I've been here for about 30 years. My Dad was here for 60 years and my Grandad 30 years before that. This is my life, I was born and bred around here" -Cheryl Devlin, Fruit 'n' veg stallholder.
