Camden Friends of the Earth launched the West Hampstead “Local Food Festival” in West End Lane.

The festival was a unique collaboration between West Hampstead cafes and restaurants, London Farmers’ Markets and the Camden Friends of the Earth Voluntary Group.

The week of events started on Wednesday 8th June with an event at West End Green with residents and restaurant-goers sampling and buying a great variety of local food, watching cookery demonstrations by a local chef, and enjoying live jazz.

10 local restaurants produced a local produce dish for the entire week, creating considerable interest amongst the West Hampstead community.
