Get a flavour of Hackney at its Local meets Global foodie event
Local meets Global will showcase Hackney's urban food-growing projects, artisan food production, locally-sourced restaurants, its markets and global food offer. Visitors will be able to see, taste and hear about residents and businesses who are growing and producing more and more of their own food and drink, including: micro-breweries, patchwork farms, floating allotments, roof-top bee-hives, urban farming apprenticeships and community kitchens.
Guests will also learn about Hackney's catering businesses, who are seeking to source or grow food locally, train local people and create more sustainable and ethical business models
The event is free and doors open at 11am. Evening entertainment will be provided by the Guillemots and DJ Prince Nelly. Limited tickets are available for this event. Doors at 7pm.
