London has some of the biggest and most international street food markets you’ll find around. Living in London I go to eat there quite often, but not as much as I feel like I should! Check out the video for a tour of my personal favourites; Camden Town Market, Borough Market and Street Feast.
Camden Town Market:
Camden Town is a personal favourite of mine. We used to live in the area when I studied at UCL, and would stop there to buy lunch on my way home at least once a week. There is a huge variety of different ethnicities and food stalls. Camden Town is also a very cool area to just walk around, with a very colourful and hipster vibe to it. The best part of the market that has the most original food (in my opinion) is on the left if you’re walking from the tube station, past the vintage market. We had some awesome halloumi fries and Peruvian wraps!
Another popular market which I go to quite often, as it’s quite close to my office. If I don’t bring a pack lunch sometimes I’ll head out and grab lunch from Borough Market. Even more food oriented than Camden Market, there are few non food stalls. It’s not just a street food market, there are also stalls that sell fresh vegetables, fish or meat, so you could do an actual food shop too! The area is amazing, you can grab lunch from the market and then go explore London Bridge, and sit in the sun in under Tower Bridge to eat.
This is a recent discovery I have made. There are a few around London, but my favourite is the one in Canada Water since it’s the biggest and with the most stalls. If you get there before 7pm it’s free entry, otherwise it’s £3 to get in. Once inside there are a variety of different street food stalls, with a lot of table space to sit down and eat too. There is a really cool vibe, and it’s a great way to spend an evening, you can also play pool or beer pong!
Street food markets might not be the first thing you think of when you think of London, but if you’re planning a trip here I highly recommend visiting one! They set up temporary markets all over the city for Christmas, and they’re even more fun than the standard markets.
