Lambeth GP Food Co-op’s First Market Stall

The first market stall at Denmark Hill was a great success.

On Thursday 28th April, Lambeth GP Food Co-op in partnership with Medirest ran their first market stall at Denmark Hill following their launch event on NHS Sustainability Day back in March.

The Lambeth GP Food Co-op is a co-operative of patients, doctors, nurses and local residents who build gardens in GP surgeries to enable its members to learn how to grow food. The co-operative is the first of its kind in the NHS.

The Co-op have been busy growing and harvesting their produce over the recent weeks, which enabled them to display a great array of nutritious, colourful, fresh, locally grown produce. Produce on sale included kale, cabbage, beetroot, herbs and lettuce.

The market stall went down well with staff and visitors to the hospital, with all produce being sold. People were also learning more about the The Lambeth GP Food Co-op in general.

As the market stall was so successful, the team have confirmed that it will be a regular event at Denmark Hill this Summer.
