London’s biggest sustainable food market opens in Wandsworth

The Streetcube sustainable food project have announced their latest venture in the form of a new organic and sustainable food market billed as the biggest in London.

Streetcube’s Great Sustainable Organic Market opens this Friday on Wandsworth High Street’s Piazza and will bring “some of the nation’s most ethical farmers and organic food producers to join them.”

Already established as a pop-up food stall in Wandsworth since 2019, the latest iteration of the project — launched by acclaimed chef Raymond Blanc — aims to promote its ethical, environmentalist approach to cuisine to the food market scene.

Ahead of the opening Founder Pascal Gerrard said the looming climate crisis meant that sustainable food was more essential then ever for humanity going forward:

“Our soil is one of the most critically important elements in the overall health of us all,” he pointed out.

“It is by far one of the biggest carbon sinks we have, we simply cannot continue to pump the land full of chemicals, as it releases more CO2, kills essential pollinators and insects, and humans ingest the chemicals and suffer all manor of gut health issues as a result.

“Our farmers need help and support to grow better, more nutritious food and to work with our chefs to help reduce our impact on the planet,” Pascal added.
