Simply Special ice cream was handing out samples of their honeycomb ice cream. It was amazingly rich and creamy, but the honeycomb a little too sweet for my taste. (Much like the company's name, unfortunately.) I bought a container of their mango, lime, and passionfruit ice cream, figuirng it would be more tart. Smooth, rich creaminess was, again, its highlight. The mango, lime, and passionfruit were all present, but with a delicacy that didn't match the robustness of its cream.
There were at least three bakeries present specializing in cupcakes. I tried one chocolate mini-cupcake from the Primrose Bakery stand, an elegant little confection sprinkled with purple-tinted sugar. I was rather tempted by the green tea shortbread cookies at another stall, but resisted - I had to save some appetite for imminent dinner! (The Lavender Bakery was also there - what is it about cupcakes and flower names for bakeries?)
I had a pleasant chat about cheeses with a woman from Norbiton Fine Cheese Co., but determined that nothing I was interested in buying would necessarily still be at its best 6-8 hours later when it could be finally fridged. I also ended up with wild boar and walnut (two different flavors) sausages from a specialist who usually retails at the Broadway and Dulwich markets. The sausages were nicely balanced, good texture with delicate spicing to bring out the flavors of the meats.
The market's on today, and next Thursday and Friday. It should be back again next year.
