Feast at Ridley Road Market this weekend and share your stories to create iphone app
Ridley Road Market shoppers, past and present, are invited to share stories and memories about it this weekend.
The event marks the launch of a smartphone app celebrating the culinary legacy immigrants have made there.
A Taste of Hackney aims to provide an interactive multi-media timeline of how changing populations have influenced the produce available at the market, and the impact this has had on ethnic and indigenous cuisine.
This weekend people will be invited to sample recipes from around the globe - all made from produce bought from the market - while an oral historian will record people’s memories and stories of the market.
Pupils from Colvestone Primary School and members of Age UK Hackney will work with community artists from A Different Drum Productions and food heritage specialists, Social Kitchen, to produce the Heritage Lottery-funded customised iPhone and Android app by next April.
