The Best Cheap Eats in London 2015 - Berwick Street Market, Soho
Jael Marschner

Berwick Street Market in Soho is one of the oldest fruit and veg markets in London, with its roots dating back to 1778. Today, the grocery stalls have thinned out a bit, but in their place is a selection of street food vendors who keep Londoners well fed come lunchtime, with amazing falafel wraps from Jerusalem Falafel and seriously tasty salads from Savage Salads. But after 300 years of being independent, this lovely market is under threat from becoming privatised by Westminster City Council. The council is currently holding a consultation, which closes tomorrow (May 6). Robin Smith, who runs Soho Dairy, has started a petition on, which they will present to the council tomorrow. The petition has received more than 1,500 signatures already – make sure you sign it before it's too late!

My grandfather was born in Berwick St. in 1869. Please don't rip it out its heart. Its character will be lost without the market.
