If there’s one thing you’ll notice when walking around London, is the constant smell of food coming from restaurants, small stands on busy streets and…food markets! I’ve already listed 8 Indoor Markets you can’t miss when visiting London and I know I’ve promised you to write a post about the outdoor ones but since I’m still working on that I thought about doing one specific on food markets 🙂
1 | Camden Lock Market
I know I’ve cited this so many times but it’s one of the most famous and when it comes to food is one of the first markets I think about 🙂 I won’t be repetitive so I’ll just write you that you can read more about it here and here 🙂
2 | Borough Market
Again, a very well known market (which I’ve cited in this post as well 😉 ) that sells both fresh fruit and vegetables, spices and cheese. But, there’s also a part where you can enjoy ready-cooked dishes, like the pictures in the linked post 🙂
3 | Maltby Street Market
This hidden south-east London market will surprise make you wonder how all those combinations of stalls, under-arch shops, pop-up bars and eateries can actually fit in such a narrow street. Bare in mind though that it’s just a weekend market (Opening Times: Saturday 9am – 4pm & Sunday 11am – 4pm) and due to its small size it tends to be busy quite fastly.
4 | Hampstead Market
As stated here, Hampstead is special for being an are of London since it doesn’t really feel like being in London when you’re around there. And it’s Saturday market (Opening Times: 10am-3pm), embodies this theme as well. All the stands sell fresh food coming directly from farmers, bakers and many other “makers”.
5 | Portobello Road Market
To conclude this foodie list, Portobello Road Market needs to be cited! It’s a very well known market but not everyone is aware of the fact that after the looooong sequence of stalls selling anything you can imagine, from vintage stuff to collections items, there’s a quite big street food market!
Have you ever been to one of these markets or do you have other food markets in London to suggest? I’d love to hear from you! 🙂
