Are these the five best street food markets in London? 😛🇬🇧

Caution: if you're hungry, you might want to look away. Here are our top 5 picks of street food markets in London 🇬🇧

Published by

Matey's, if you're heading into London soon then check out our top 5 street food markets that you can visit while in the Capital. There's loads of market choices in London and they're a great way to save money with cheap and delicious food stalls.

It wouldn't be very reliable of us to do this without trying them, so for research purposes, we visited each of them and filled our Pirate faces.

Camden Market

Camden Market consists of several markets that merge into one another, you could get lost in this place. Almost everything is sold here: from antiques to second-hand clothing and souvenirs to street food. If you stroll through the small streets, you can munch on Indian curries and Japanese terijaki skewers, churros with chocolate sauce, pasta made from cheese or Korean fried chicken in a burger bun. And to digest all the food, instead of taking the tube, you can walk towards the center along the canal to Kings Cross.

📍Camden Town

The Truman Brewery Markets

Several markets await you here, but you will find most of the food stands in the Upmarket. The food stalls are usually open on Sundays (some also on Saturdays) and are sheltered from the weather in part of the former brewery. They even host Vegan party nights.

On your culinary journey you can try:

  • Korean fish balls (Siu Mai) or corn dogs (also with cheese or vegan meat substitute)

  • Sushi, katsu curry and ramen

  • Venezuelan cachapas and arepas with pulled pork or shredded beef

  • Lithuanian cepelinai, a kind of meat-filled dumpling, or garlic chicken in a mushroom sauce

📍 Shoreditch High Street

Spitalfields Market

Just a stone's throw from the Upmarket is Spitalfields Market, which is open daily and is probably much better known. The market is known for handicrafts, but there are also a few restaurants, bars and - of course - street food stalls. Dirty Bagels has great pulled pork in a bagel or brioche, and if you prefer something sweet, grab a cup of apple or berry crumble with vanilla sauce from Humble & Crumble.

📍 Liverpool Street

Seven Dials Market

The newcomer to street food heaven is located in the central district of Covent Garden. The food court, which only opened in 2019, currently has 19 food stands and 2 bars. The highlight is probably Pick & Cheese. There you can sit down at the world's first conveyor belt, on which cheese with the right accompaniment (including coleslaw, a brownie or jam) drives past you. There are around 30 types of cheese to choose from. Another great thing about this market is they also have party nights and entertainment.

📍Covent Garden

Borough Market

Borough Market is one of the most famous markets in London. Close to the River Thames and The Shard, you will find fresh baked goods, fruit, meat and fish, cheese, bars and restaurants and numerous street food stalls on site. You need to try:

  • Traditional pies at Pieminister, either classic with beef steak or vegetarian/vegan with mushrooms

  • Fudge in various flavors from Whirld Ltd. My favourites: Sea Salt Caramel & Soft Vanilla Fudge

  • Horn OK Please: vegetarian, Indian street food, for example dosa chaat with masala potatoes

  • Meat lovers should order a toasted ciabatta with slow-cooked pork at The Black Pig. There's, among other things, with Scarmorza or truffle mayo and parmesan

📍London Bridge
