Thu 10am-5pm; Fri 10am-6pm at Borough Market, 8 Southwark
Borough Market will be celebrating St David's Day in style,

sell some of the best Welsh produce available. On St David's
Day visitors can also get culinary inspiration from Welsh
cookery school teacher, broadcaster and mother of five, Lisa
Fearn, who will be taking the helm of the demo kitchen from
12 - 1.30pm. Using seasonal ingredients from the Market and
delicious Welsh produce, Lisa will prepare recipes including
Cockle and bacon chowder and Welsh cake crumble with rhubarb
compote. After Lisa's demo at 1.30pm the Welsh male choir,
Eschoir, will be singing their hearts out and performing
some well-known classics. Visitors will be encouraged to
sing along and help celebrate Dewi Sant. The guest traders
will also be at the market on Friday, along with Great
British Bake Off finalist and fellow Welsh native, Beca
Lyne-Pirkis, who will be in the demo kitchen from 1pm to
2.30pm, with seasonal produce and delicious dishes including
Bara Brith served with butter & blue cheese and Welsh lamb
