Best London street food markets, food courts and food halls
1. Borough Market, London Bridge
Likely the best known London Food Market, you can’t beat a bit of Borough Market.
It might be one of the more famous (predictable even) choices on this best street food markets in London list, but is it worthy of its accolades (although Borough Market can get super busy at the weekends).
Indeed, the joy of visiting Borough Market comes from the hustle and bustle of the market itself, with various calls from the street food and markets traders and street food samples galore to try.
Whilst Borough Market can be expensive in parts, you can also do Borough Market rather cheaply. Some incredible bread and sweet treats can be bought for around the £1 to £2 mark (but you can also splash the cash with fresh oysters or artisan cheese if you so desire).

2. Maltby Street Market, Bermondsey
Possibly not on the tourist or out of towners radar for London food markets, Maltby Street is one of the most appetising London street food markets. A foodie favourite of ours with so many delicious street food packed into one little street.
The Maltby Street Market is set back along a little laneway setting, tucked away amongst the railway arches and various industrial warehouses.
Maltby Street Market is pretty unique on the London street food scene given its unusual location. The selection of stalls along Maltby Street is huge, with the best of London street food along with international fare.
From Taiwanese waffles to delicious french canales, your stomach will be satisfyingly sorted. On our last visit to Maltby Street Market, the duck wrap and raclette stalls were doing great business. Delicious.
We’d also recommend visiting the Bermondsey Beer Mile after a trip to Maltby Street Market (or even before). One of the breweries themselves (Hiver) is literally next door to the market.
The main Maltby Street street food market is open Friday – Sundays, but the restaurants here are open all week.
Address: Maltby Street Market, 37 Maltby Street, London SE1 3PA

3. Southbank Centre Food Market, Waterloo
Riverside views, craft beer booze and street food dishes, Southbank Centre Food Market at the weekends is easily one of the best street food markets in London.
Located a short walk from the river Thames, you can easily grab a street food takeaway from the Southbank Centre Food Market (although most people tend to sit on the steps heading up to the Hayward Gallery).
The Southbank Centre Food Market is home to street food from all over the globe from Bangalore to Brockley, plus the very best of traditional British foods like Scotch Eggs and Cornish Pasties.
The line-up of street food stalls at the Southbank Centre Food Market in London seems to change every time we visit so you are guaranteed to find the right bite for you.
The Southbank street food market is open Friday to Sunday – best combined with this South Bank Walk with map >
Address: Southbank Centre Food Market, Belvedere Road, London SE1 8XX
4. Duke of York Square Food Market, Chelsea
In the heart of Chelsea close to upmarket Sloane Square, The Duke of York Square plays host to one of the best street food markets in London (open on Saturdays only alas).
Chock full of sweet treats, champagne delights and savoury dishes, you can visit lots of stalls at the Duke of York Square street food market.
Craft a picnic and sit on the lawn outside the Saatchi Gallery (the lawn is open during the summer months only).
Freshly shucked oysters, duck confit wraps, Vietnamese spring rolls and quiches galore are just some of the London street food stalls at the Duke of York Square Food Market, Chelsea.
One of our favourite stalls at the weekly Duke of York Saturday market is the canale stall, a delicious pastry dessert from the Bordeaux region in France, flavoured with vanilla and rums and topped off with a thick caramelized crust. Nom.
Address: Duke of York Square Food Market, 80 Duke of York Square, Chelsea, London SW3 4LY
5. Mercato Mayfair Food Hall
FACT – located in an old church, Mercato Mayfair is the best looking street food market / food hall in London (plus surprisingly reasonable prices given it is located in Mayfair).
The church (St Mark’s in Mayfair was deconsecrated in the 1970s) and this is our go to food hall in central London when we are taking guests from overseas. There are around 15 or so delightful food stalls based over two floors.
The Mercato Mayfair church setting with street food stalls all around is just incredible – there is even a Kraft Brewery bar where the font and altar used to be.
Mercato Mayfair food stalls include Italian from Pasta Lovers, Asian Fusion from Pad Thai House plus bars including Jim & Tonic.
Worship at the font of Mercato Mayfair – once a church, now the finest looking food court in London.
Address: Mercato Mayfair food court, St. Mark’s Church, N Audley Street, London W1K 6ZA
6. Broadway Market, London Fields
Sometimes described as a ‘Victorian working street market’, Broadway Market comes alive every Saturday with a cavalcade of street food stalls lining the main high street (plus the odd craft and gift stall).
On weekdays, Broadway Market is coffee and craft beer central with lots of nice bars, cafes and deli style affairs to choose from.
However, head along to Broadway Market on a Saturday morning and you’ll be rewarded with a treasure trove of tasty treats and street food bites.
Once you’ve grabbed your gourmet grub from a stall, enjoy it in nearby London Fields, one of east London’s most popular public parks.
Address: Broadway Market, London Fields, London, E8 4PH
7. Camden Kerb street food market, North London
Located within Camden Market with a charming canal side setting (several narrowboats are moored in between the food kiosks), Kerb Camden is one of the best London street food markets (and well established).
With over 25 stalls and kiosks selling all manner of cheap eats, you’ll find mac and cheese bites, pasta bowls and tandoori wraps – plus you must try the halloumi fries street food at London’s Camden Kerb.

As well as having numerous craft and antiques stalls, Old Spitalfields Market has a dedicated street food market plus dozens of food stalls lining the perimeter.
Somewhere between a London food hall and undercover street food market, there are numerous street food choices at Old Spitalfields Market.
Two top tasty street food stalls at London’s Old Spitalfields Market include Bleeker Street burgers, PilPel Falafel (possibly the best falafel aubergine wrap in London) and bao buns courtesy of Yum Bun.
Due to its canopy roof, Old Spitalfields Market is fine to visit even if it is raining, and is open seven days a week.
Address: Old Spitalfields Market, 65 Brushfield Street, London E1 6AA
9. Mercato Metropolitano Street Food Hall, Elephant and Castle
Food hall heaven! Elephant and Castle Mercato Metropolitano is easily one of the BIGGEST and best street food spots in London.
Housed in an abandoned paper factory, Elephant and Castle Mercato Metropolitano is the original of the Mercato chain of food halls. There is another Mercato located in Mayfair, plus a smaller version in nearby Elephant Park.
There is so much choice, you kinda never know where to start at Mercato Metropolitano Elephant and Castle.
There are around 50 independent street food stalls under one roof selling a range of delicious cuisine from around the world including Italian, Sri Lankan, Korean, Lebanese, Japanese and Mexican.
Also at Mercato Metropolitano Elephant and Castle, there is an on-site micro-brewery called German Kraft. For a full list of traders, check out Mercato’s main website here.

11. Greenwich Market
No trip to London is complete without visiting historic Greenwich – full of naval heritage, traditional taverns and maritime museums (plus that hillside view next to the Royal Observatory – ooof).
Greenwich is also home to one of the oldest and most historic markets in the whole of the UK. Greenwich Market and food hall opened its doors in the 1730s and moved to its current central Greenwich site a few years later.
Greenwich Market is a fantastic place to grab street food in London with flavours from all around around the world. Plus if you are in the market for pie and mash, Goddards at Greenwich have been serving pie and mash since the 1890s and is located right next to Greenwich Market.
Address: Greenwich Market, London SE10 9HZ
12. Bang Bang Oriental Food Hall, Colindale
London’s biggest Asian food hall has arrived in north London with a bang (bang).
Nestled away in the north London district of Colindale, Bang Bang Oriental Food Hall brings a bit of Asian spice to the London street food scene – this is one London food hall you just have to visit!
Based in a huge purpose built food hall, Bang Bang Oriental has over 20 different street food stalls, plus a well stocked bar (The Pearl Bar) selling Asian lagers.
Bang Bang Oriental Food Hall also boasts the widest range of specialist Asian restaurants in the whole of the UK – so you won’t go hungry!

Address: Lloyd Park Food Market, Lloyd Park, Walthamstow, Forest Road, London E17 4PP

Once our local Sunday market, Victoria Park Farmers Market takes place every Sunday between 10am and 4pm. It is easy to spot (or smell) in Victoria Park – just follow the crowds!
The stalls sell all kinds of organic and gourmet goodness, such as street food dishes from all over the globe, seasonal fruit and veg and sweet treats (the roster of street food stalls changes weekly). We also recall lots of treats for dogs too!
Spend an afternoon here and head into one of London’s most enchanting areas afterwards, Victoria Park Village, home to bakeries, delis and all manner of sublime shops.
Address: Victoria Park Sunday Food Market, between Bonner Gate and Gore Road, London E2 9JW
15. Market Halls Cargo Canary Wharf
Canary Wharf’s newest street food emporium (for now), Market Hall’s latest London street food venture is a shiny and sleek food hall – Market Halls Cargo Canary Wharf.
With around 10 street food kitchens including magnificent Mexican from DF Tacos and dim sum from Baoziin.
We’d recommend the lamb murtabak or roti from Gopal’s Corner (if you can, also visit their original Roti King restaurant near Euston station).
Other branches of Market Food Hall in London can be found near Victoria Station and Oxford Circus.
Address: Market Halls Cargo Canary Wharf, Canary Wharf Shopping Centre, 25 N Colonnade, London, E14 5HD
16. Seven Dials Market Food Hall, Covent Garden
Once the centre of London’s import and export trade, this former fruit warehouse is now one of London’s best food courts and street food hubs.
From the UK’s first cheese conveyor belts to Filipino food, you’ll find all manner of street food at Seven Dials Market Food Hall.
The upstairs area of Seven Dials Market has mainly seated casual restaurants and a chic bar called Bar Nana! Downstairs there is a huge food court with ample seating and a rather stylish bar.
Address: Seven Dials Market Food Hall, 35 Earlham Street, London WC2H 9LD

17. Arcade Food Hall – Battersea and New Oxford Street
Both Arcade Food Hall locations have bars meaning you can have some sips of cider or sauv with your street food.
Arcade Food Hall in central London has around 14 stalls as of summer 2023, including Bebek Bebek (Indonesian Street Food), Tipen Tapen (Nepali food) and Siu Siu (Cantonese Comfort Food).
Battersea Arcade Food Hall opened in summer 2023 and has a fantastic food hall in the heart of the restored Battersea Power Station with a couple of bars, 3 restaurants offering 13 different cuisines, and a private dining room.
Address: Arcade Food Hall, 103-105 New Oxford Street, WC1A 1DB
18. Pimlico Road Saturday Farmers Market, Belgravia
Held every Saturday from 9am to 2pm, Pimlico’s premier produce pop-up (try saying that after a few proseccos) has established itself over the last 20 years as one of London’s best street food and Saturday markets.
The Pimlico Road food market is proud of its fresh produce and and as well as the organic farmers market stalls, you’ll find a series of sublime street food stalls and coffee carts.
Based around Pimlico’s Orange Square under the gaze of a Mozart statue (the composer lodged here for several months in the 1760s when he toured the capital as a child), the Pimlico Farmers Market has plenty of outdoor areas and benches to enjoy your street food or you can buy fresh fruit and veg, poultry and meat.
Address: Pimlico Road Saturday Farmers’ Market, Belgravia, Pimlico Road, London SW1W 8UT
19. Market Hall Victoria food court
Another of London’s street food market highlights is Victoria’s veritable Market Food Hall, housed in the former Pacha night club building.
Market Hall Victoria has two levels of street food kiosks and an outdoor terrace overlooking Victoria train station.
There is something to suit all street food tastes and budgets here. Popular with workers in the week and busy with the brunch set at the weekends, food hall stalls to choose from include Koya Ko noodles, rotis from Gopal’s Corner and Fanny’s Kebabs.
Address: Market Hall Victoria food court, 191 Victoria Street, London SW1E 5NE
20. Sunday UPMARKET at Truman Brewery, Brick Lane
Sunday street food, street art and sublime bagels – east London’s Brick Lane is a glorious mix of grunge and gentrification.
There are several food markets and food halls along Brick Lane, but the most interesting food stalls on Brick Lane are located at the weekly Sunday UPMARKET inside the Truman Brewery. This market has dozens of Asian street food stalls as well as vintage and new clothing.
Address: Truman Brewery, 91 Brick Lane, London E1 6QR
21. Vinegar Yard, London Bridge
As it stands in 2023, the future of Vinegar Yard is in doubt, given property developers want to build on the site – so visit the street food stalls here whilst you still can.
One of the best known additions to the London pop-up bar and food market scene, Vinegar Yard launched in a disused lot in Spring 2019 and consists of a boutique, bijou market and several bars and street food outlets with ample outdoor seating.
Tip – head to the upstairs deck at Vinegar Yard atop a rusty shipping container for incredible views of the Shard.
We’ve visited Vinegar Yard in both the summer and winter and whilst obviously more popular in the hotter, sunnier months, there are lots of outdoor heaters and indoor spaces here so it can be visited all year round.
Address: Vinegar Yard, 72-82 St Thomas Street, London SE1 3QX (for now!)
22. Wapping Docklands Market
Docklands London’s newest street food market opened in 2021 on a quayside in Wapping.
Wapping Docklands Market is a Saturday market taking place between 10am and 4m. It is one of the lesser known street food markets in London but the choice of food is superb as is the quayside location.
Whilst the number of stalls isn’t…ahem…Wapping, sorry WHOPPING… the quality of the street food stalls is bar none, and the set-up is sublime.
When we last visit Wapping Docklands street food market, there was live jazz, cheese stalls galore and a waterside coffee van.
Afterwards, take a walk along Wapping shoreline (the closest thing the capital has to a London beach) or grab a pint in the famous riverside pub the Prospect of Whitby.
Address: Wapping Docklands Market, Brussels Wharf, Glamis Road, London E1W 3TD
23. Lower Marsh Food Market, Waterloo
Located on Marsh Street, across from Waterloo Station, Lower Marsh Market is one of London’s oldest and most enduring street food markets, with dozens of food stalls dotted along this pedestrian plaza.
Recent London street food stalls at Lower Marsh Market include Ethiopian rice plates, Portuguese bifanas and Korean fried chicken.
Our personal preference at Lower Marsh Market is the £5 medium falafel wrap, which we usually then eat in nearby Millennium Park or one of the numerous deck chairs dotted along the market.
Unlike a lot of the London street food markets on this list, Lower Marsh Market is only open Mondays to Fridays (generally between 11am and 3.30pm). In addition, most stalls have at least one £5 dish as the market owners wish for it to be known as one of the most affordable street food markets in London.
Lower Marsh offers a wide variety of food stalls with a couple of craft and vinyl record stalls thrown into the mix. The deckchairs at Lower Marsh Market are also a nice touch – sit down and tuck into your street food.
London street food tip:
Just a few steps away from Lower Marsh Market, Millennium Park also has a popular Caribbean jerk chicken pop-up stall, Jerk in Da Park. The queue sometimes goes halfway around the park so get there early. Jerk in da Park opens Monday to Friday from 8am to 2pm in Millennium Park, Waterloo.
Address: Lower Marsh, London SE1 7RG
24. Hackney Bridge Kitchens, Hackney Wick
London’s street food revolution hits Hackney Wick. In the shadow of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and next door to HereEast, Hackney Bridge is the latest hip hang-out in east London, nestled on the banks of the Lee canal and home to various street food stalls.
Hackney Bridge Kitchens is a food hall and a street food court home to such street food vendors as Tamila (south Indian street food), Wrap N Rolla (toasties) and Filigrillz (Filipino flame-grilled meat).
Craft beer and other decadent drinks are available from Hangar Bar.
Address: Hackney Bridge Kitchens, Hackney Wick, Echo Building, E Bay Lane, London E15 2SJ
25. Market Halls Oxford Circus
Undergoing a recent renovation and the only food court to be found along Oxford Street in central London, Market Halls Oxford Circus has 8 food stalls and 2 bars.
It is quite the swish affair inside too with sumptuous interiors. Head to the seating area at the back of Market Halls Oxford Circus to enjoy your street food with views of historic Cavendish Square.
Market Halls Oxford Circus street food stalls include Baoziinn dim sum, 20 FT fried chicken (it isn’t literally 20 foot just to be clear!), DF Tacos Mexican food and delicious roti from Gopal’s Corner.
PS The Oxford Circus website claims this is the biggest food-hall in the UK (let alone London) but this is absolute rot.
Loads of the London food halls and London street food centres on this list are much bigger like Bang Bang Oriental Food Hall and Mercato Metropolitano Elephant and Castle – rant over.
Address: Market Halls Oxford Circus, 9 Holles Street, Oxford Street, W1G 0BD
26. Brockley Farmers’ Food Market, South London
Located in the grounds of Lewisham Central College (well its car park), Brockley Market is a weekly farmer’s market with a fine line in street food stalls and fresh farm produce.
The location can be a challenge to get to from central or north London but what makes Brockley Market worth the journey is the quality of produce.
Warming soups using the freshest organic veg, free-range sausage rolls and 100% British beef burgers direct from the farms are just some of the street food usually available at Brockley Market.
Address: Brockley Market, Lewisham College Car park, Lewisham Way, London SE4 1UT
27. Herne Hill Market
Located along the main Herne Hill high street right outside Herne Hill train station, this south London street food market has a local, village atmosphere with over 50 traders selling locally-produced dishes and international street food.
Given the close proximity of all the stalls and incredible selection of independent food stalls, we can hand on heart say this is one of the most aromatic and best smelling (and probably best-selling) Sunday street food markets in London we’ve ever encountered.
We’ve visited Herne Hill’s Sunday Market several times now and see (smell even) something new every time we go. For instance, on our last visit, the local salsa school put on an impromptu performance.
The Herne Hill Street food market is open every Sunday from 10am-4pm, and the nearest tube station is Brixton (a 20-minute walk away).
It is also located right next to Brockwell Park so you can easily do takeaway street food and enjoy it there with nice grassy vistas.
Address: Herne Hill Market, Railton Road, London SE24 0JN
28. Shoreditch BOXPARK
BOXPARK was London’s first shipping container retail park and supposedly the very first in the world that kickstarted the entire container mall trend.
There are lots of high street fashion and shoe shops on the ground floor, and a wide selection of bars and street food kiosks upstairs, with alfresco seating areas.
Shoreditch BOXPARK street food traders include The Argentinian Grill, Sugoi (Japanese latin fusion food) and Coqfighter (fried chicken).
BOXPARK Shoreditch has an eclectic events schedule including live DJs.
Address: Shoreditch BOXPARK, 2-10 Bethnal Green Road, London E1 6GY,
29. Netil Market, London Fields
An artisan array of food stalls near to London Fields, Netil street food market is a charming courtyard type affair with around a dozen stalls (half street food and bars, half arts and crafts).
Street food at Netil Market includes Bao Bar (tasty Taiwanese fare) and Oli Baba – the supposed creator of London’s halloumi fries frenzy.
Address: Netil Market, London Fields, 13-23 Westgate Street, London E8 3RL
30. Alexandra Palace Farmers Market, North London
Known locally as ‘Ally Pally’, Alexandra Palace also has splendid skyline views of London, a boating lake to boot (with animal pedalos!) and you can also explore the Palace itself – read more about the things to do in Alexandra Palace here >
Alexandra Palace is also home to a weekly food market, held every Sunday morning until 3pm.
It is one of north London’s best street food markets, serving everything from cured meats to sweet treats. Doggy friendly too plus several coffee vans dot this street food strip in Alexandra Palace.
Address: Alexandra Palace Farmer’s Market, Muswell Hill, London N10 3TG
31. POP Brixton
A local community space, full of shipping containers and street food kitchens, Pop Brixton features lots of local businesses and food vendors
The street food options at POP Brixton are brilliant – Koi Ramen is always popular and Baba G’s Bhangra Burger stall smelt delicious.
S11 Bar at POP Brixton has a nice beer garden bedecked with hanging baskets.
Open all year round, Pop Brixton also hosts a regular events schedule offering everything from tai chi and yoga sessions to vintage jumble sales.
Address: POP Brixton, 49 Brixton Station Road, London SW9 8PQ
32. Eataly Italian Food Hall, Liverpool Street
A new(ish) Italian street food market and dining establishment next to Liverpool Street station, Eataly is an Italian food hall in London’s city centre.
An Instagrammer’s wet dream (check out the neon archway at the entrance), Eataly opened in the summer of 2021 is one of London’s go to gourmet hotspots near the Square Mile.
When Eataly opened, the queues went around the block (we know as we tried to get in several times) although they have now died down (possibly because the street food pizza and pasta prices at Eataly certainly aren’t cheap).
Address: Eatlay Italian Food Hall in London, Liverpool Street Station, 135 Bishopsgate, London EC2M 3YD
33. Camden Market Buck Street Food
Recently, the old school market along Chalk Farm Road (Camden Market’s less salubrious sister market, which we actually kinda liked) has made way for the brightly coloured Buck Street Market container mall.
A collection of pastel coloured shipping containers mainly consisting of ethical / sustainable street food stalls (many of which are vegan) and several boutique and craft shops.
Kind of a cross between a Camden food hall and a street food site, Buck Street market is a nice alternative if you want to escape the crowds of the better known Camden Market or Hawley Wharf street food stalls.
Address: Camden Market Buck Street Food, 192-198 Camden High Street, London NW1 8QP
34. Wharf Kitchen, Jubilee Place, Canary Wharf
Canary Wharf has a culinary scene like no other including this subterranean street food hall.
Located in the Lower Mall area of Jubilee Place, Wharf Kitchen has a boujie basement feel with neon interiors and a cool little seating area (feels like a cinema foyer but with street food stalls all around).
Street food vendors at Wharf Kitchen in Canary Wharf include Rainbo Gyoza, vegan favourite the Vurger Co, Mama’s Jerk Caribbean food and Poke House.
Address: Wharf Kitchen, 2 Lower Mall, Jubilee Place, Canary Wharf, London E14 5NY
35. BOXPARK Wembley
Wembley has seen a huge amount of change over the years with the London Design Outlet centre, an upgraded Wembley Stadium and a frenzy of new flats.
Adding to all this transformation is food hall favourite BOXPARK. After the success of their shipping container set-up in Shoreditch, BOXPARK Wembley is at the heart of the new development.
Given its close proximity to Wembley Stadium, Boxpark Wembley food hall has kind of become known as THE place to watch England play in the Euros or World Cup finals.
As well as bars and beers galore, street food options at the BOXPARK Wembley food hall in north London include Island Poke bowls, Longboys doughnuts and Mama Jacq’s Caribbean street food and jerk chicken. In total, there are around 25 street food vendors at BOXPARK Wembley.
Address: BOXPARK Wembley, Olympic Way, Wembley, London, HA9 0JT
36. MMy at Wood Wharf / Mercato Metropolitano at Canary Wharf
Mercato Metropolitano’s newest branch is in Wood Wharf, the latest neighbourhood to hit Canary Wharf.
As already mentioned in this street food market London guide, we’ve been to Elephant and Castle Mercato Metropolitano and the impressive Mercato Mayfair before, so in terms of stature and size, MMy Wood Wharf falls somewhere in the middle.
Inside MMy Wood Wharf, there were around 10 different street food stalls, a central seating area plus a craft beer bar and Ethika cocktail bar.
One of the MMY Wood Wharf food market highlights is the fine looking fresh produce store (think cheese, meat, preserves and all manner of foody goodness).
Address: MMy at Wood Wharf / Mercato Metropolitano at Canary Wharf, Wood Wharf, George Street, London E14 9QG
37. Medz Corner Food Hall, Kensington
Cosmopolitan Kensington now has a new food hall called Medz Corner (no, we aren’t sure either why it is called that). We preferred ‘W8 on a plate’, which was on one of the posters we saw in this street food food hall.
As someone who spent several years working on Kensington High Street, it was always hard to find affordable street food for lunch (we’d always pop into Boots or Tesco), so Medz Corner is a welcome addition to the west London street food scene.
Offering a multitude of multicultural munchies, the Medz Corner Food court / food hall currently has around 10 street food kitchens – try sushi tacos, shawarma, sashimi or sweet treats.
Nearby, there is also a huge food court at Wholefoods Kensington (head to the top floor).
Address: Medz Corner, 62 Kensington High Street, London W8 4PE
38. Canopy Market, King’s Cross
As you’d expect from the name, Canopy is an all weather affair with a courtyard style food court and market held every Friday to Sunday. Given all the street food snacks, we wonder if they should rename it ‘Canape Market’?!
Specialising in street food, arts and crafts and design stalls, this is a pleasant way to spend an afternoon in King’s Cross. The area has changed so much in recent years- find out about all thing things to do in King’s Cross here.
From a gin and tonic bar in a campervan (yes!) to tasty Thai food, spend your Saturday or Sunday savouring street food in King’s Cross. You’re most welcome!”
Address: Canopy Market, West Handyside Canopy, 2 Granary Square, London N1C 4BH
39. BOXPARK Croydon
Street food eats come to Croydon in the form of BOXPARK Croydon, a 2000 seater shipping container food hall chock full of street eats, craft beer bars and a dollop of live sports for good measure.
Very popular during the World Cup and Euro football championships (check YouTube for pints of beer being joyously lofted into the air as England score), BOXPARK Croydon has around 30 street food vendors under one roof.
Culinary highlights at Croydon’s BOXPARK include Karachi street food by Thela, Greek goodness from Mikos Gyros plus Peninsula’s Malaysian street-food.
Note – BOXPARK in Croydon can sometimes be closed due to ticketed events – check on their website before making a special journey there.
Address: BOXPARK Croydon, 99 George Street, Croydon CR0 1LD
The United States of America has set up home in Paddington (ish) with this 1980’s inspired Manhattan/ NYC street food hall and karaoke bar – think Greenwich Village but not the London one!
Billed as a ‘…bustling all-day dining and drinking urban market’, Huckster is a themed food hall in a fun setting, with graffiti walls, diner style booths and copious amounts of booze (happy hour specials and bottomless brunches are particularly popular).
Address: Huckster Paddington, 4 Kingdom Street, London W2 6BD
41. Between the Bridges, South Bank
Looking for some London street food snacks whilst on Southbank? Between the Bridges is a riverside London food-court overlooking the Thames that can easily be combined with the Southbank Centre Food Market – it is literally in the shadow of the London Eye.
Between the Bridges is an outdoor pop-up food court and performance area which contains lots of bars, food kiosks and amusements.
Between the Bridges on SouthBank even has a huge outdoor TV screen so is the perfect place to watch big sports games like Wimbledon tennis or the World Cup. We watched the Wimbledon’s men singles final at Between the Bridges in summer 2023 and the atmosphere was electric!
Entry is there were several bars including a Pimm’s pop up plus seven street food stalls – Made of Dough (pizza), The Duck Shed (duck wraps), Bang Bang Burger, La Cocinita (churros), BBQ Dept (grilled meat), Chick ‘n Sours (fried chicken sandwiches) and Meat Head Mexican (tacos and nachos).
Between the Bridges is open six days a week (closed Mondays) from lunchtimes until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays and 11pm at all other times.
Address: Between The Bridges, The Queen’s Walk, Southbank London SE1
42. Colour Factory’s food court
Formerly Mick’s Garage, Colour Factory in Hackney Wick is a large multi purpose live music venue / events space which also houses a bar and food court during the day.
On-site street food vendors include Pittagoras (Greek), Hogless Roast (vegan hog roasts) and Burger and Chop (burgers and fries) – a welcome addition to the Hackney Wick restaurant scene.
Colour Factory is located in Queen’s Yard which is a stone’s throw away from Howling Hops Brewery, Crate Brewery and Old Street Brewery so you can do a mini Hackney Wick pubs and breweries crawl!
Address: Colour Factory, 8 Queen’s Yard, Hackney Wick London E9 5EN
Our final food market in London…
