Old Street
The workaholics of Clerkenwell and Hoxton descend upon this energetic food market every Thursday and Friday for a slap-up lunch on the go. Follow your nose, or gravitate towards the vans with snaking queues, always indicators of quality grub. A world of cuisine means everyone is catered for. Luardo's, purveyor of Latin-American street food, is a good bet, with fluffy burritos that may rival some of Mexico's best offerings; keep an eye out for their mint-green vintage Citro'n van. Another hit with regulars is Mario and Carol's Italian food stall, where an order of classic Roman-style grub comes with friendly banter from the opinionated yet charming Mario.

This food market is an absolute joy. Venison burgers, pulled pork wraps, Pad Thai, Brazilian BBQ, Greek salads, buckwheat wraps, Italian food…the list goes on.

Sure it’s busy on a Thursday and Friday, but if you’re not a fan of crowds why not come on a Tuesday – it’s here all week! Even if you do have to queue it’s pretty fast paced and the wafting aromas just mean that your mouth is watering and ready to chow down by the time you get your lunch. It’s totally worth it.


If you’re in the area, it’s worth hitting up.

This market has a phenomenal range of food – seriously, a world of cuisine is on offer for you to choose from – from Turkish wraps and Italian pasta to buckwheat crêpes and chocolate cookies. Enjoy yourself; prices are reasonable and you’ll easily spend only a fiver on your meal. Yum!


Relly I missed this market but in my next visit sure I will go to taste some food after I watched food network.
