Eco Eats explores: City Food Fair

City University London celebrated its fourth annual Green City Week from 12th to 16th November, hosting a wide range of events to encourage participation in environmental initiatives and highlight the importance of living a sustainable life.

Eco Eats took a trip to Northampton Square to investigate the City Food Fair and found it buzzing with a number of market stalls all supplying locally-sourced, freshly produced food- from cheese, bread and honey to sausages, chocolate cake and pies.

With cheaper imported alternatives available from dominant supermarket chains, whether or not people are still prepared to dig a little deeper into their pockets for fresh, ethically produced food is debateable. We asked foodsellers and customers for their thoughts on the future of sustainable food in today’s money-strapped British society.

Stalls taking part in the fair included, among others: Brockleby’s, Wobbly Bottom Farm, Just Change UK, Honey Bee Suppliers, Bath Soft Cheese., Global Fusion and The Giggly Pig Company.

Would you have forked out an extra few pounds to try some of their eco-friendly produce, or do the higher prices simply put you off?

We’d love to hear your thoughts, so please leave a comment below or tweet us @ecoeatsuk.
