Bubbling jollof rice, fragrant Thai noodles, superior kebabs… this choice weekday food market offers a global assortment of flavours.

Twenty years ago this small, pedestrianised street was still a big bloomers and veg stall sort of market. The resurgence of the food stalls began around 2006, in the wake of a French market introduced the preceding December by Islington Council. After this one-off event, Exmouth Market Traders Association realised the possibilities. A few stallholders from the weekend Broadway Market also seized the opportunity to operate from Monday to Friday at Exmouth Market, and after a few years of winnowing out the me-too sourdough sellers, there are now many excellent stalls serving a great variety of takeaway food to satisfy omnivorous and vegetarian appetites. Regulars might include Spinach & Agushi (Ghanaian stews), Pasean pastas, Mac & Cheese,  Meat Head BBQ, La Cochinita Spanish dishes, and Freebird burritos, among others.

Great market to compliment the amazing food offering on this street already in place. Although there are some standard traders there is always something new when I visit and I’ve never eaten anything bad here either!

I had beautiful meatballs and rice on my last visit with tangy salad. Shaved rib buns the time before both around £7 I think- super value considering the area- and there are lovely local pubs to wash down the food too.
