City/Town: Zurich, Viadukt Market
Event Type: Other
Location: Markthalle im Viadukt, Limmatstrasse 231
Price: Free entry

Saturday 2nd June is the Queens Diamond Jubilee, (60 years as Monarch) and we're throwing a street party in Zurich from noon till about 7pm to celebrate the occasion. We'll have tables set up on the forecourt in front of the Viadukt market and you can eat and drink and party all day.

We'll be setting up a Pimms and beer bar and there will be wine and bubbly and coffee on offer at the Oyster bar next to our island.

The full menu isn't finalised yet, but there will be cheese platters, a Ploughmans Lunch, salmon and cucumber sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and a special Jubilee Jam (first created by August Escoffier for Queen Victorias Diamond Jubilee, a cherry and Kirsch jam), cakes and the Pie Shop will be making a Royal Pie (with salmon). Lots of other food available from the other market vendors too.

It hasn't been confirmed yet but we should have a kilted piper mid afternoon too and it's pretty certain that we will get some press and/or TV coverage so be sure to wear your best flowery frocks and hats and blazers and cravats for the gents.

The market is at tram stop Dammweg (trams 4 and 13) or we're a 15 minute walk from Hardbrücke station.

Those pickled onions were great. I had five.

Were they homemade or can I buy them somewhere?
Not home made, we imported them from a small supplier. On Saturday we actually mixed the standard and the spicy together. We have a few jars left but will get more in a few weeks. I'll put your name on a few jars!
