http://www.lfm.org.uk/markets-home/ <– As you can see, there are locations all around London, with up to 39 producers per product (eggs, vegetables, meat). It is a fantastic plan, selling food grown locally that cuts out the globalized middle man (fuel used for planes). However, how local is local? Our team attended the Bloomsbury Farmer’s Market last week, spoke to some sellers, ate some delicious food, and understood that their definition of local did not include London – products were produced and cultivated in Oxford, or other farms 100 miles away from London. We were surprised to not see any produce from London itself, urban agriculture’s yield was missing. Maybe within the next 10 years this will change, and the globe will become green enough for urban agriculture to thrive and be sold alongside the free range organic eggs from Northern England.
