Northern IrelandColeraine holds its speciality market at the Town Hall.

London – oddly, we can’t find any festivals this weekend for you. Sorry about that :( — but we can tell you that the Kerb streetfood wizards are on today at King’s Cross and West India Quay; see their homepage to find out exactly where they’re heading each day; there are also duckpond markets on Saturday and Sunday in Pinner and Richmond, respectively.

Nationally – A big barbecuing weekend!

Awesome Picnic Cookbook Survey

Super-planners will love this book: it covers every al fresco eventuality, from bonfires and barbecues to seaside soirées and foraging excursions, and the Afternoon Tea Picnic — a contradiction in terms of effortless appearance and hidden labour. Those of a more fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants type character can flip to the ‘Travelling Light’ chapter. Plus handy hints from how to build a campfire without incinerating the countryside, to foods for eating in cars (ie low crumb counts), high-energy catering for major hikes, and exotic options for adventurous foodies.
