Food Festival Plans in Full Swing
With the date for the Acton Food Festival, drawing near, the Market Team is busy planning who will be there and what you’ll be able to eat. To be held Friday 5 th, Saturday 6 th and Sunday 7 th September from 12-7pm, we’ve got live music and entertainment on all three days. We’ll have everything from Vietnamese noodles and Indian samosas to good old English pies. Tables will be set up for you to relax and enjoy the atmosphere, meet your neighbours, friends and the whole Acton community.

The Pitch

Yummy Yummy Yummy…that’s what you’ll be saying after visiting the Yummy Cake stall at Acton Market. Trader Aishling Marlborough’s selection of homemade cakes, biscuits and savoury treats are a perfect way to relax and enjoy your Market shopping. Aishling has a table where you can sit, have coffee, relax and enjoy her allnatural cakes. Aishling decided to start Yummy Cake when she realised that her love of cakes could become a real business. She contacted Action Acton and registered for the Market Traders Training Programme. She has two pitches – her main one at Acton Market on Fridays and Sundays and alternating Saturday mornings and another at the London Farmers’ Markets West Ealing location on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of every month. Aishling’s cakes are also made to order for special events. She can be contacted via email
