My obsession with Indian cuisine is seriously getting out of hand. Only a mere two days after my trip to Kimi’s Indian Rajasthani food truck I found myself stood outside Madhav’s window, gazing in like Kevin Mcallister into the toy store window. Madhav is my idea of total heaven. A supermarket and a street food cafe combined, you can pick up your spices and ingredients in one side of the store and then stumble into the other for some freshly made, piping hot street food. I did just that.
Jacob’s Market, Cardiff Central
It’s January, it’s cold, I’m supposed to be in the gym and drinking kale smoothies but if there is one thing that makes January even glummer than it already is, it’s me trying to pour my post-Christmas arse into pre-Christmas gym leggings. So, I threw January traditions straight out the window and decided to get my steps in at Jacob’s Market instead.
Originally known as Riverside market, Cardiff Farmer’s Market was established way back in 1998 and is now run by the wonderful people at Riverside Real Food. Riverside Real Food now runs various events across the city but the farmers market has to be my absolute favourite. Located along the Fitzhamon Embankment overlooking the Principality Stadium (MUST NOT CALL IT THE MILLENIUM) you would struggle to find many other markets with the Produce it has plus this sort of view to boot!
