About 2 weeks ago, I saw a tweet from @PERRYCOURT_FARM which said 'Retweet for a chance to win a 5 min shop' and so I did. I totally forgot about it until last thursday when I woke up to a tweet from the good people at Perry Court Farm to tell me that I won the 5 min shop!!! Woohoo!!!
After a few emails, we decided to drop by the stall in Notting Hill Farmers Market early Sat morning to do our shop.The market had just opened and there were already a queue for in front of the stall! That's just shows how popular they are! I could see why too as the stall was filled to the brim with ultra fresh looking fruits and vegetables!
The husband and I joined the queue, told the stall owner that we had won the 5 min shop. She then gave us 3 plastic bags, told us to take anything we like within 5 mins and we went on our fresh fruit/veg spree! Here's what we came back with and I can't wait to finish everything all up!
One of the first things I've tried was the pippin apples and sweet apple crisps. The apple was wonderfully sweet, crisp and flavourful! It was indeed refreshing! Perrycourt Farm also sells apple crisps made from apples grown and prepared by hand in their farm in Kent. Warm air is blown over sliced apples for hours until they are ready. I wonder if i could just use a hair dryer to do the same but it'll be much easier to just buy these delightful crisps! haha The crisps were amazingly crunchy! I've had apple crisps before but never were they as tasty and crunchy as these ones.
The Sweet Apple, Tangy Apple and Dried Pear crisps can all be bought online from the Perry Court Farm website. Perry Court Farm Stalls can be found in Brockley Market and all over London. Details of their locations can be found at the London Farmer's Market website.
Thank you once again for a great shop, Perry Court Farm. We'll definitely be back to buy more amazing produce!
