Here’s one for London’s foodies: you’re all invited to Farmdrop’s Summer Fête on Thursday 4 June.
The event, at the Farmdrop hub in Bermondsey, will be an evening of food, drink, games and music. Open to anyone who loves local food from smaller outfits, the event will also provide an opportunity to meet some of London’s finest artisan food producers.

A taste of London
37 different food producers will be at the summer fete, giving guests the opportunity to sample loads of quality produce from in and around London.
Craft beers from local micro-breweries Partizan and Brew by Numbers – plus ultra-local cocktails from Jensen’s Gin & Bermondsey Tonic – will be flowing.
The evening will include a range of games and live entertainment, as well as talks from the head of the Soil Association and the Slow Food movement.
London-based trio the Bonfire Band will be performing live throughout the evening. Their combination of blues and folk has been compared by Q Magazine to American country rock legends the Jayhawks.
Ben Spalding, executive chef at the Aqua restaurant at the Shard, Matt Burgess, head chef at Ceviche in Soho and Rosie Llewelyn from bespoke dining experience experts Grub Club will be giving live cooking demonstrations of local food on the day.
Each chef will be cooking a selection of meat, fish, fruit and vegetables from Farmdrop suppliers and demonstrating simple recipes that showcase their fantastic flavours and freshness.
‘We are so proud of all of the suppliers we work with and so that’s why we’ve decided to throw this summer party. This is a great opportunity for people to meet some of London’s best food producers, as well as sampling some local craft beers and cocktails.
‘What could be better than a warm summer evening spent enjoying great food, great beer and great music?’
Ben Patten, CEO of Farmdrop.co.uk
Farmdrop works with some of the finest farmers and foodmakers in and around London, and delivers food to your door the same day it leaves the farm. By cutting out unnecessary middlemen, the company is able to provide a much better deal for its producers and the environment.
Selling through Farmdrop, farmers and foodmakers get up to 80% for their hard work, compared with the 25%-50% that most retailers offer.
‘We believe that small-scale farming paves the way to more sustainable farming and food production and Farmdrop helps make it a viable process. By shopping with Farmdrop you’re supporting the local ecosystem and the people and businesses that make it possible.
Farmdrop’s aim is to stimulate local production as best we can.’
