#LoveBorough

#LoveBorough

Today Borough Market reopens. We stand in solidarity with them #LoveBorough.

Borough Market is today reopening following the terrible attack 11 days ago.

We remember all those lost and hurt, and we give thanks that the market has reopened: that delicious, warm, buzzy, multicultural place of laughter and conviviality – the very opposite of hate.

Slow Food and Borough have deep roots together – there are more Slow Food traders at the market than anywhere else in the UK  – and our roots get deeper each year; much as the roots of the apple trees we gift Borough each Terra Madre day get deeper as a sign of our friendship.

We stand with Borough Market; the traders, the bar and restaurant owners & workers, and those that shop there, in solidarity. We call on everyone to come and visit: shop, buy something delicious to eat, and say that there is no place for hatred. If you are further away from London, then please make it the top of your list of places to visit (it should have been already!) on your next return.

If you wish to further support Borough Market and the victims of the attack

Support the Red Cross UK Solidarity Fund

The British Red Cross UK Solidarity Fund was launched in response to the recent events in both London and Manchester, with the funds raised going to support victims and their families.

Donate to the Borough Market trader support fund

Set up by the Borough Market Trust, United St Saviour’s Charity and Better Bankside, the fund will provide financial assistance to members of the community who are dependent on the market. Donald Hyslop, chair of the Trustees of Borough Market, explained: “An atrocity of this magnitude has many hidden victims. Among these are the independent traders and producers who rely upon Borough Market for their livelihood. With the market still closed and with valuable stock lost, some of these traders—although none would be quick to admit it—are struggling. If any of these traders, whose skill and dedication make the market such a wonderful asset, were to find the viability of their work threatened by this act of violence, the result would be to add a sad injustice to a terrible tragedy.”
