Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information
Make a date in your diary for 25th August 2018. What, wait a minute, you already have. I'll be in Delft that day, you'll still be away on holiday, and he's going to the seaside. But Kerb will be opening a food market on the Square in Front of the FEC Development Site. (Their website is very light on the promised 'craft')
According to the poster this market will operate from 11 - 4 every Saturday.
According to the Haringey Licensing regulations, they will have to apply for planning permission and be granted it before holding the 15th market on 8th December.
Quality food, craft & produce. All will play major part in the story unfolding

Street food operation KERB will launch a new community-focused concept at two debut London market sites over the next two months.
Set to trade at markets each Saturday afternoon in Crouch End and Peckham, KERB X will showcase local crafts and produce alongside its street food offering.
The new concept aims to expand on the concept of the farmers' markets while championing local businesses.
"Across both markets we're excited to collaborate with operators who share our vision for a new era of Saturday markets, working with local businesses alongside the best of KERB to develop a new vision for how Saturday markets should be," says Ian Dodd, director of communications and marketing at KERB.
Launching on 25 August, the first KERB X market will occupy the space in front of Crouch End's Hornsey Town Hall.
It will coincide with the renovation of the hall, which will eventually include a private cinema and rooftop bar, and the market will be curated in collaboration with urban regeneration specialists The Time & Space Co.
The first wave of street food vendors will comprise Filipino barbecue trader BBQ Dreamz; Baggio Burger, specialising in chuck steak burgers; and steak-and-chips outfit The Beefsteaks.
The local produce side of the market will offer chilli infused honey from Wilderbee; artisan cheese from Tottenham cheesemaker Wildes Cheese; crafts from retail workshop space Heron Hawker; and from September onwards there will be bread from Dunn's family bakery in Crouch end.
