Head to the FoodLovers Market from London hostels
Gastronomes staying in London hostels this weekend ought to consider making their way to this district as, from 09:00 BST, TV chef Ed Baines will be selling oysters to all those who care to partake, alongside other traders such as Hook & Sons, which will be touting unpasteurised cream, butter and milk - produced by a herd of Jersey cows, the London Evening Standard reports.
Green herself recalled the heady days of the 1970s, when these streets of the Big Smoke were filled with "a rich variety of producers from fishmongers, butchers and game dealers ... the FoodLovers Market aims to place Soho back on the foodie map".
Another merchant that may be able to tempt the taste buds of anyone staying in London hostels this summer is Fosse Meadows Farm, which will be offering up a steady supply of sausages and other meat-based items.
However, people who prefer to eat rather than cook will also have their interests more than catered for as the organisation has teamed up with numerous restaurants in the area to create a weekly menu, with food served up made by produce purchased from the market that very day. Head to Zilli Green, Polpo, Hix or Quo Vadis to give this a try.
