...and we go south!

As we role into the third month of Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil hitting the South, I think it’s about time I introduce myself and give everyone a little update on what’s going on at my end. 

If you've received the new fancy newsletter you will be aware of who I am, if you haven't - get on the mailing list! I am Zoe, Adams younger sister, and I am a freelance food and interior stylist currently living in East London. I am in charge of sales for Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil in the South of England so any feedback, suggestions and advice from all of our southern followers can now be directed my way! 

We started off in December with a one off market at Old Spitalfields Market. Adam, Jason and myself met lots of enthusiastic foodies and frantic last minute Christmas shoppers who all seemed to love to hear about Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil and enjoyed sampling our products. Following the success of Spitalfields, we have started a regular market there on the second Saturday of every month. In addition to this, we are also at Haringey on the 1st Sunday, Alexandra Palace on the 3rd Sunday and Bermondsey Square on the last Saturday of the month. So far I’ve done Spitalfields and Alexandra Palace this month and they have both been very successful, I've really enjoyed getting out from behind my computer and meeting enthusiastic foodies like myself! 

 

We also have some great stockists on board already, Earth Natural Foods in Kentish Town, Limone Fine Foods in Highgate and W. Martyn in Muswell Hill to name just a few. I'm hoping to venture over to the south side of the river this month and see what the likes of Lewisham, Greenwich and Southwark have to offer. If anybody has any particular deli's they wish us to stock in, there is a bottle of oil up for grabs for each deli that stocks our products on your recommendation. It’s worth an ask next time you're in your local deli or farm shop!

 

Following a very productive team meeting on Friday (with me on Skype from London) we have some fab new ideas on the horizon for London and the South, more info coming soon! I’m currently working on a new section of the website that will be displaying all of the news and updates from the south. You will be able to see who our new stockists are and which markets we are doing next. Ill also include some of my food styling and recipes as I have a few recipes using the Rapeseed Oil being published in magazines at the moment. Any of your recipe ideas would be very welcome.

 

It's all go down here at the moment, and I’m hoping it stays that way. I love hearing from everyone so please keep in touch with me via Facebook and Twitter.
