Duke of York Square Food Market – A change of plan!

A change of plan!

I had this grand idea of visiting the Saatchi and Saatchi Art Gallery again, as it has now changed it’s exhibition material and share yet another artistic experience with you my lovely bloggers.  However, I got there and it was closed!  Shock horror, well it was open for a private party only and I was bitterly disappointed.  You can catch up on my last Saatchi and Saatchi Experience on the clickable link if you have not done so before, it was Post Pop East meets West:  Saatchi and Saatchi Post Pop East meets West.  I do promise to get there sometime when it is open to the public and snap some shots of the new exhibition running, I promise.

However, all was not lost, as it turned out there was a wonderful Food Market on outside, which apparently is on every weekend.  Just goes to show how little I get to go out!

So I thought I would share some of my foodie images with you delightful foodie bloggers!  ๐Ÿ˜€

There were a lot of Caribbean stalls, of which of course I couldn’t resist but help myself to some salt fish patties and rotis.

Now I remember seeing recently on Fiesta Friday blogging a recipe of food cooked in these leaves, very impressive, but I didn’t get to try it this time, maybe next.  There were also plenty of amazing gluten free foods for sale which was great to see.

Now what do you think this lady is doing, what treats is she nearing?

Oh wow, how hard was this to resist?

The market was full of character and so many different foods to sample.

I had I must say the best coffee, apart from of course what I brew at home ๐Ÿ˜€

I loved this stall as he called one of his dishes “sexy prawny”

I don’t know who these chaps were but they looked jolly don’t you think?

Teas, pies and cheese, what more do you want?

Perhaps a roti. oh my this was so delicious, took me back a bit to Barbados which I so sorely miss.

This chap was rather jolly, I just love his hat.  Rather Carmen Miranda don’t you think?

There were oysters too, but I had had my fill by then.

I got the salfish patties from this chap, the temptation was for more, but I restrained myself with stomach already bulging.

There seemed to be a mad hatters tea party to happen, he was blowing his trumpet but nothing happening.

After having a lovely time at the food market, some shopping, I headed off with my great friend to enjoy a Dim Sum Tea, of which you can read about here:  Tea Time #11 Dim Sum

    Justine, i love the photo of you ๐Ÿ’–. Was that garlic in a later photo with the pretty swishes of purple on the white skin? If so I’ve never seen that color as well as they were still attached to the stalk. If I could paint with watercolors (ackkk) that’s the scene I’d paint!

    Whatever that wrap-style treat with chocolate chips on the ends is, it looks delish!

    I have taken note of this place for my next visit – later in the summer. Art gallery and food market would be a good use of time in one day! Lovely photos.
