Get Organic at the Open Market

September is officially ‘Organic September’ according to our fine friends at the Soil Associaton, and here at Brighton Open Market we have a selection of goodies on offer to tempt your organic taste buds from a range of experts and food lovers!

Foodshed is a veritable organic one-stop shop, with organic vegetables, eggs, milk, grains, pulses, spices & rices. If in doubt Josie is usually on hand to guide you through all they offer.

Brighton Apothecary have a range of organic goods, including fantastic range of Pukka herb teas.

Over at the Ditchling Road end is our newest addition to the market – Rainbow Organic Chocolate who make delicious hand-made chocolates, whilst over towards London Rd flying the organic flag is also Brighton Naturally who as their name suggests have a range of products from raw chocolate to fruit smoothies that will be made in front of you by Ray & Dandy, that are all free from pesticides.

Chi trading & the Honey Shop have a wide selection of organic loose leaf teas and honeys, whilst all of the homemade hummus from  Smorls uses organic chickpeas and they also sell a range of organic oils, vinegars and olives.

To wash it all down Pacta are on hand to advise you which of their delicious organic wines would best compliment your meal. They import ‘least intervention’ wines from the Adriatic Coast which all have no added sulphates, and to give that added personal touch Judith & Trevor know all of their wine producers personally and can tell you the story behind every producer of the bottles of wine that they sell.

We have a variety of casual traders at Brighton Open Market who sell organic – such as Hook & Son who bring their organic raw milk to our market every Saturday. They were recently the subject of a film which wowed the crowds at Sundance Film Festival, but we’re glad to say that all the fame hasn’t gone to cows’ heads and they are still very down to earth!

Children’s fun days for the holidays

If you’re stuck what to do during the holidays, we have an array of children’s days at Brighton Open Market to keep minds busy every Friday during August

Lego building workshops,  a visit from the Brighton Science Festival, and a nature day which features a rockpool from the Sealife Centre, as well a bee keeper with his bees and also Buddy the horse will be trotting in to say hi are just some of the things we have planned. What’s even better is that it’s free to come, and there are loads of free things to do with extra additonal workshops such as Circus skills, pottery making etc available for a small charge, so it needn’t cost a packet to keep everyone interested! See our events page for more details.
