These stalls never stall – a rich variety of outdoor eating options on an historic Soho street.
Situated on the stretch of Berwick Street between the Soho strip joints of Walker's Court and the elegant Yauatcha restaurant, this fruit and veg market is one of London's oldest. Its roots go back to 1778, and at one point the thriving market ran the length of Berwick Street. While the friendly and vocal grocery hawkers have thinned in recent years, they have been joined by a clutch of hot food and sandwich sellers during weekday lunchtimes, including Pizza Pilgrims – a pair of dough-spinning brothers famous for their Italian treats. Berwick Street is also blessed with good shops and cafés, including several vintage boutiques (look out for Reign and a branch of Absolute Vintage), renowned fabric store the Cloth Shop, coffee house Flat White and brunch favourite Foxcroft & Ginger.

No matter where you work or what you’re doing in Soho, a walk on over to Berwick Street market is definitely worth it. It might not be the quickest lunch you’ll have - I once waited 20 minutes for a spanish tortilla but just you try and stop me queueing up again for it - it was well worth the wait! The falafel stand is also a hit and thankfully the queue goes a lot quicker, those guys have that wrap construction down to a fine art!
As a born and bred Londoner, this reminds me of how London should be. Market traders, fabric stalls, head shops, sex shops, vintage stores, the lot. My only worry is that this gem of a street will go due to Cross Rail :(
The vibe is great here but unfortunately the Friday I went the Savage Salads weren't there or maybe they had sold out already and I missed them?! Will be back again as the overall variety and choices are great.
