More delectable street food markets with newcomers and old faves
Borough Market website
[Tube: Borough and London Bridge]
All week / The don daddy of food markets, this is a converted Victorian fruit and veg market transformed into an artisanal foodie heaven with prices to match. Charcuterie, paella, cheese, heritage fruit and veg, wines and beers and weird spirits, it’s got it all.
2. LEATHER LANE
[Tube: Farringdon and Chancery Lane]
Monday to Friday (lunchtime) / A relatively newcomer, Leather Lane has quickly come to vie for topdog status: it boasts cheese meisters Grill My Cheese and kick-ass burritos Daddy Donkey (kick-ass, geddit?). Get there early, the workers of Farringdon scrum down with verve.
Brockley Market website
Saturdays / Situated in Lewisham college car park on a Saturday, I know what you’re thinking. But think again. Churros, burritos, kebabs, Mike & Ollie’sLebanese flatbreads, Jacob’s Ladders meats, Flavours of Spain, Mother Flipper’s burgers and Fleischmob elevate this food market to must-visit status for the enthusiast (the greedy).
4. MALTBY STREET
Maltby Street Website
[Tube: London Bridge and Bermondsey]
Weekends / Another newcomer near Tower Bridge, serving up waffles, gin, brownies, peri peri grill, smokehouse: this is all very artisan but no less lovely for it.

Check website for locations and days / The original street food organisers with a whole host of street vans in their posse. Catch them at West India Quay, the Gherkin, Kings Cross and Paddington. Faves include Luardos (Mex), Jamon Jamon (Spain), Anna Mae’s (Mac n cheese), Capish (meatball subs) and many, many, many more.
