Capital gains: what's happening at London's Urban Food Fortnight?

London’s Urban Food Fortnight kicks off from Friday 8 September and runs for just over two weeks (so you get some extra days for your fortnight) and focuses on the capital’s foodie producers and pop ups that are changing the way we eat and dispose of food.

Curated by London Food Link there are events, workshops and pop ups running all over the capital every day of the event that prove that good food is grown, made, foraged and shared. So what’s occurrin’?

It all kicks off on 8 September with a party at Canopy Beer in Herne Hill with The Orchard Project who make cider from apples saved from London’s fruit trees. Our favourite brewers, Toast Ale will be collaborating with the Temple Brew House and Tonic & Teas will be hosting an event with River Cottage’s chef Rachel de Thample.

Food waste campaigners Feedback join forces with community project Disco Soup to get people together to make a feast from surplus food at the Mercato Metropolitano in Elephant & Castle and you can learn to harvest the hedgerow at the Table Cafe in Southwark. And there’s a lot more besides. Get your stretchy pants on and get eating.
