Last week Fluid London was invited along to the new Lower Marsh Saturday food market just behind Waterloo station along what is fast becoming a cool, hip and trendy (yes, I just used all three of those words in the same sentence) Broadway Market area of south London.
To celebrate and highlight the fantastic work of the small, independent charcuterie, cheese, bread, cake, pie and almond milk producers at the market - all yummy - pop-up dining restaurant concept, Chateau Marmot decided to take up residence in a disused shop on Lower Marsh for a couple of days. The menu they create for the pop-up event was exclusively sourced from the producers in the market that day. What a lovely idea!
Being suckers for pop-up restaurants and supper clubs in unusual London locations, Fluid London decided to go along to see what the Marmot could deliver.
