With regeneration going on in Colindale and Burnt Oak, Park Eats aims to bring these new and old communities together to share their love for their area through a pop up food market. It will pop up in three parks in the area, Colindale Park, Montrose Park and Silk Stream Park. These parks require some work to bring them to life and make them a real focal point that the community is proud of. As part of the Colindale Area Action Plan, the Council has plans to improve the landscape of these parks and what better way to support this by adding life to these parks with weekend markets. The food market will have 10-15 stalls that will float between the three parks initially on Saturdays and Sundays. Not only will Park Eats bring the community together, it will primarily support businesses and residents in Barnet through prioritising stalls to current small food businesses in the borough or residents who are looking at setting up food businesses.

What we'll deliver:

  • Provide 15 market stalls
  • Cooking equipment
  • Plant fresh flowers
  • Create herb gardens
  • Fit new benches/seating in the park
  • Storage for all equipment

Why it's a great idea:

There is a vibrant community around Colindale and Burnt Oak however there is little activity to bring people together. There is also little to do at weekends in the area which means people often end up heading out of the borough to find things to do. By bringing good food to people in the area, this will help them to really contribute to making Colindale a place that people want to live and work together. Additionally, we will have a robust selection process which ensures that there is a fair representation of local businesses and people; the food will represent the community and provide a spring board for residents. It is truly about supporting local people and this is something that Park Eats will put at the centre of Park Eats.

Steps to get it done:

  • Planning permission
  • Website and social media launch
  • Set up database of quality local market traders
  • Mini Market
  • Park Improvements
  • Launch full market
