Brixton Market

Markets, Food and drink

Compared to the culinary homogeneity of Borough market et al, Brixton is a sensory fiesta. The air is thick with the sizzle of jerk chicken stalls, tinny reggae riddims and yam-based price disputes while the multi-coloured hues of exotic fish displays...

Well as the time out review couldn't actually be bothered to name a specific venue (too busy hanging out in Stoke Newington?) I'll start with kaosarn-awesome thai food with proper thai spicing levels (the salads really shine here) and Honest Burger. Oh yeah there's also the original franca manca which is supposed to be one of the best pizzas in london (and double the size and half the price of Pizza East). There are many others but I know them by location and not by name-sorry!

I lived in Brixton for 11 years up until 2010 and regularly shopped at the market way before the term hipster reappeared. The produce was always patchy and at best had to be eaten within a couple or three days but that's why it was cheap...ish. 


Nowadays, I reside in Melbourne where the markets are bountiful and thriving despite the onslaught of the supermarket chains. The array of produce on offer is second to none. Weekly excursions to either Victoria or Preston markets feels a little like my youth in 70's Southampton but on a much bigger scale. I'm not sure how they exist as everyone I know has the same busy lives as back home though I suspect the bigger disposable income provided by a more generous pension for the olds, a lot of which hark from a Mediterranean background, has something to do with it.


Quality produce does exist in London (I saw the recent series on London's wholesale markets), you just need to demand it,  - and stop shopping at Tesco's et al.

I love this place. You cant book tables and often have to bring your own alcohol but the food is fantastic, the selection is amazing and its all super cheap :)

Time Out's odd sensationalism continues. Don't get me wrong - I live in Brixton, I love the market, and shop there several times a week. But for quality (or even value), it doesn't compare to Borough Market. Take a look at the butchers on Atlantic Avenue. Seems authentic, from the outside; whole skinned lambs hanging from the hooks. Step inside, and you'll find nothing more than a bunch of untrained guys with a hacksaw. It's not the real thing, though it would fool a white person. Same thing down the row. The secret: ask any good restaurant - and there are many - in Brixton Village - where they source their ingredients. A hint: it isn't the market, in 90% of cases (the successful ones). The result is a sensationalist dream, a market that looks like a foodie's paradise, but isn't. Reject the dream, and go elsewhere that has real ingredients. Borough market isn't bad, for a starter (though there are other places as well.) Sad, but true. Don't be a dupe, don't be a hipster. Look at it with a sceptical eye, and demand better.
