While we might not be able to live life to its fullest in this current lockdown phase, Londoners are doing a damn good job of filling their bellies. Restaurants have had a bit of time to get new delivery services up and running and to perfect their DIY meal kits so that you can eat like royalty at home. But one of the other surprising upsides for foodies has been the fact that takeaways are still allowed – meaning London’s bounty of brilliant food markets can keep on going through Lockdown 2, so long as they serve up their dishes to go.
What better way to pass the slightly quieter weekends than perusing goods in the great outdoors, supporting local businesses and getting a good feed in while you’re at it? Here’s an up-to-date list of London street-food markets still going strong in November and December.
