Joel Northcott, who runs Streatham's new Babington Road artisans market next to Streatham Green, has produced a list of environmental aims for the market:
-To encourage trips to the market by bike/foot/public transport and change the habits of local movement.
-To cut down on the carbon footprint of Streathamites.
-To have at least 75% of stalls selling produce grown, raised and produced within 100 Miles of the M25.
-To provide regular bike repairs.
-To leave the area (The Green & upper pavement) tidier than when we found it.
-To encourage local groups, food support & local charity groups to have a presence at the market.
-To support local, ethical businesses in the area.
-To allow local food banks to collect any leftover produce from the market.
-To champion local food 'heroes' and encourage and work with other like-minded food events in the area.
If you have suggestions about other aims or comments, do post them below, and we can pass them on to Joel.
The next market is this Sunday 17th Feb.
