Maltby Street Christmas


As every week, we went to do some weekend shopping at Maltby Street. Today we bought some more provisions, due to it being Christmas holiday period.

Monmouth Mistletoe
First stop – Monmouth Coffee, of course 🙂
Smooth Nicaraguan brew today, with tiny mince pies!
Nice surprise! Fern Verrow was supposed to not have any veg today, but still they came in force.
Lots of biodynamic beetroot for traditional borscht 🙂
Mons Cheese. Alps and Pyrenees cheeses from individual mountain farms. Fantastic Jura cheese, as strong as Gruyere, as soft as butter.
Poilane bread – the usual 🙂
Long queue for Christmas Stilton at Neil’s Yard
Neal’s Yard Christmas Lights
Bea’s cakes
The fantastic, awesome, terrific, best in the world, cold-smoked salmon from Hansen&Lydersen. We bought half of one for 20 quid.
Live shrimps from Dorset – jumping out of the basket
This had been the best oyster I have ever tasted. Plump, fresh, briny, the taste of the Brownsea Island
Lots of Panettones
Lovely miss La Grotta (Kitty) came after a long break, bringing Choc Ices with hazelnut chunks.
The Shard looming over the Arches
