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.
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.
