Spice up your weekend

As the winter nights draw in, what could be better than a hearty soup, that draws in all of the flavours of the season! A recipe courtesy of Camden Market trader Ladle, lazy bones can pick this soup up from their horse box in Middle Yard.

However, for those feeling more adventurous, why not take a stroll to our newest trader, The Camden Grocer and pick up all of the fresh, organic veg needed to make this delicious soup yourself (plus a loaf of freshly baked bread to mop it up with)!
