About Time You Discovered: Market PorterBy Iona Goulder
There’s no shortage of food delivery services out there, but Market Porter is a new delivery initiative with a difference. Frustrated with never quite finding the right food in supermarkets and then never knowing where it came from, Market Porter set out on a mission to find great food, and make sure it available to everyone.
Market Porter: What
They only deliver the best meat, cheese, charcuterie and chocolate from trusted supplies spread out across the UK. The idea is, by finding the most passionate people for each product they will be able to offer an online marketplace of some of the UK’s finest ingredients.
Market Porter: The Produce
I was lucky enough to be invited to a dinner they hosted recently with the Young British Foodies 2015 Chef of the Year, Adam Rawson. Cue an 8-course tasting menu, showcasing the finest British produce from a range of independent suppliers found on their website.
Highlights included, pork cheeks (from Lakehaven farm) with chervil root, shallot and watercress. And amazing soft Highland brie (Highland Fine Cheeses) which I ate two portions of, thanks to the pregnant lady sitting next to me. The meal was all topped off with some of the best chocolate I’ve eaten, supplied by Ocelot Chocolate. I even had the chance to meet the co-founder who had swapped office life for a farm, leading him to quit his secure job in the City to join the team at Market Porter. They’re clearly very serious about sourcing the right produce, and it was so nice to be able to meet some of the suppliers and hear about the food first hand.
Market Porter: The Verdict
There’s no doubt that a chef as good as Adam Rawson could pretty much make anything taste delicious, but with ingredients as good as the ones supplied by Market Porter you’d have a tough job making a bad meal. Market Porter essentially ends the postcode lottery for produce and puts the best of Britain just a click away.
They are currently offering £10 off your first order of £40 or more. Give it a go here.
