Foodie Fun at the MetroBank

Wandsworth Party to launch new food vendors


Wandsworth Foodies had a party in a bank this week. Of course it had to be the Metrobank Clapham Junction, they seem pretty cool about people eating and drinking there, although upon entry, I was mistaken for someone who wanted to open an account. No, I'm just here for the cakes mate.

Organised by Wandsworth Foodies it was well-attended, with yummy edibles, wine and soft drinks. There was a whole raft of developing food vendors. Some were at a later stage than others but they were aiming to get feedback from potential customers, so there were plenty of savouries, sweet things, and sauces to try out.

Soraya Lavery, co-organiser, said, “A big thank you to our food traders who did an amazing job. The variety and quality of food was incredible. They worked tirelessly all evening and provided the food free of charge.”
