Urban Food Fortnight in the press

In the run up to, and during, Urban Food Fortnight 2015 there were 23 mentions of the event in 20 different publications, both digital and print, including a feature in Time Out. 

Here's what they said:

Time Out, '10 Essential Things to do in September' & Urban Growth feature 

  • “Who knew so many fantastic ingredients came from right here in the capital?”​
  • “London is in love with gardening at the moment, and getting greener by the minute. In addition to our cheesemakers, microbreweries and the positively frightening hordes of artisan bakeries, we’ve got individual peeps and collective assemblies growing food in skips, on barges and on teensy strips of streetside dirt.”

London Food Essentials, 'Go Local: Urban Food Fortnight 11-27 September 2015'

  • “It's our favourite fortnight of the year, when London celebreates it's homegrown produce and producers.”

Indie Farmer, 'Top 10 Food and Farming Festivals'

  • “Held from the 11-27th September all over London. UFF is a series of events throughout London to celebrate the vast array of amazing food and drink on offer and organised by Sustain London.”

Sustainable Restaurants Association, 'Get Set for a Fortnight of Feasting on London's Larder'

  • “London Food Link’s 4th annual Urban Food Fortnight is just around the corner and will give London’s food lovers the chance to sample the fantastic food being grown, produced and cooked right on our doorstep.

Sustainable Merton, 'Urban Food Fortnight 2015'

  • “Urban Food Fortnight is the platform for London’s vibrant food scene. The event connects restaurants and retailers with London’s edible gardens and small producers, to showcase the best produce on offer in the city with special menus, one off events and supper clubs.”

Love Lambeth, 'Urban Food Fortnight' 

  • “Urban Food Fortnight is a wonderful opportunity for the borough to show off the wealth of foodie knowledge and skill that already exists in the community and to open the door to those wanting to find out more or get involved.”
