Dickens Yard in Ealing came alive on Sunday 8th October as hundreds of residents and visitors attended the first ever We Love Cheese festival in the development. The event was held to celebrate the launch of the new weekly Ealing Artisan market, run by local organisers Eat Me Drink Me.
Produce stalls including Brocklebys Pies, Picks Organic Farms, Limpopo Biltong, GB Cheesecake and Claude’s Boulangerie lined up alongside cheesy street food from the likes of Grill My Cheese and Honest Burgers, who launched their latest cheeseburger: The Ealing. Abbotshill Wine Bar & Deli joined forces with Formaggi & Cheese and ES Magazine’s restaurant critic Grace Dent to run wine & cheese pairings in the Ealing Bites talks tent.
The hotly contested Cheese Cup award was voted for by guests and was won by reigning champion Capo Caccia with their Blusard cheese from Sardinia.
Ealing Artisan will start on Sunday 15th October when the street food line up will feature Muffin Man & Co, Indian Street Kitchen and Nha Trang, with Chapter Coffee and Abbotshill on hand to provide refreshments. There’s a kids craft area, with giant games supplied by Dickens Yard resident Charlotte W5, live music and all the food stalls you could need for your weekly alternative to the supermarket shop.
The market will take place in Dickens Yard every Sunday from 11-3pm.
