Unmissable weekend food markets in London
As spring has officially sprung, its time to appreciate the epic foodie markets around the city. There is no better way to way to spend a (hopefully sunny) weekend.
Award-winning Brockley Market offers local produce, with an awesome community feel. Stock up on fruit and veg for the week, and chow down on some of the funky street food offerings. A highlight is certainly Tongue N' Cheek's
Piccante Burger, washed down by the best cup of tea around town from Good & Proper.
Broadway Market boasts the largest gathering of food offerings in Hackney and is a one-stop shop for organic and local produce, artfully mixed in with vintage homewares and retro fashion. After picking up a spatchcock chicken for dinner, make sure you experience the 'Lady Macbeth' haggis toastie from Deeney's
and for dessert, a home-baked seasonal delight from Violet's
Maltby Street Market
With so much unmissable food on offer its hard to know where to start, so we recommend a three-course approach. Start with a classic fish and chip sandwich from Shaol Food
or a triple-cooked steak and chip fest from The Beefsteaks
. Followed by a display of the best of British cheese - an oozing toastie from The Cheese Truck
. Top it all off and be right on trend, with an egg box full of Dhan
waffles slathered in Nutella.
Netil Market in London Fields
Slightly away from the crowds of Maltby and Druid Street, Netil Market offers awesome street food options, as the birthplace of the renowned Bao
, amongst others. Try Lemlem Kitchen
that serves up classic Eritrean dishes with a modern twist, in the form of 'Afro-Tacos' and their 'Awaze Wings.' We are talking slow roasted spiced lamb and double fried chicken, it doesn't get much better. Morty & Bob's
churn out grilled cheese sandwich's out of their shack. Alongside their bloody mary, they will blast away your hangover.
Druid Street Market
A no brainer choice is a Sri Lankan hopper from Weligama
, with their residency at Druid Street. While Fatties Bakery
never disappoints to satisfy everyone's craving of salted caramel with her decadent brownies. Then dive into L'Emporio Fine Foods
, the local Italian deli, if not just to try their infamous pistachio spread...
