Please note, Kerb's traders rotate regularly – check the website for details. Time Out Food & Drink editors, December 2016.

A street food collective championing independent London traders, Kerb runs lunch markets all over town. High standards and well-tuned tastebuds mean their roster is second-to-none. I have never had a dud lunch from a stand bearing their logo. The fact that they’ve revamped the West Yard (the cobbled bit next to the canal and behind Lock 17) in Camden Town is a big deal for both the traders – with some existing stalls displaced – and the locals, who will be seeing many new faces, dozens of dishes and some party-friendly opening hours.

With 34 stands trading seven days a week – from Kimchinary to Nazari, Blu Top to Club Mexicana – choosing just one dish is a challenge. So the Time Out team sampled the signature dish at every stand and here are our top ten. If you still can’t choose, go on a Friday or Saturday for an all-dayer. They’re open 11am-11pm in the summer, which means at least three meals, right?

A group of us visited last week and was blown away by Burger and Beyond's CLIFF Burger and The Other Side Fried Chicken Burger with the Butter spread all over it!!!! AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Very busy when the weather is good. Possible queues at the stalls and a low chance to find a seat or even a stand-alone table to eat properly. But oh man! I love all the traders in this market! I live quite close to Camden, so I come here very often. I remember when it first opened and I went to check it out, I couldn't decide what to eat because everything seemed so delicious! Some traders change every now and then, Some have been there since the beginning (Yes, halloumi fries, my love!) Overall I highly recommend this market! Especially if, like me, you're a big fan of street food. A lot of cuisines to choose from, and all for a very reasonable price! Not to mention the joy of having your food and drink by the canal :)

Tastemaker

Oh man, I would keep coming back here time and time again for the halloumi fries alone. All stalls here are fairly reasonably prices as well, around £6 for a lunch dish. If you're anything like me though, you'd want to try at least a couple. Just a heads up, this place does get crazy busy in the summer months, so be prepared to queue for your fave spot!

You had me at 'halloumi fries'! Arguably one of the best food stall markets in London (and much bigger and better than their Kerb Kings Cross offering), this has so many different types of cuisine from all over the world (with the occasional free sample), with the added bonus of being right next to the canal-side. Be warned, the truffle & garlic mac & cheese from the Mac Factory is highly addictive.

Amazing food market in Camden! Los of food and drink places, fairly reasonably priced for street food. Top tip Try the brownies and the falafel 😍

Can you really go wrong at the Kerb? May it be at the gherkin or in camden you're in a for a treat. Some of London's best food stalls can be found here and you'll be spiolt for choice...

From falafel to brownies to oozy burgers ... Its a foodies heaven!

Tastemaker

Excellent range of food and drink options - with new stalls added regularly. The korean burritos and brownies stalls are the best! Great value too.


Kerb is always booming, even in winter times! I have been there a couple of times already and I absolutely love it. When friends of mine visit me, I always take them to this place, it's simply full of atmosphere. When you walk around in Kerb you simple have to buy something - you simply cannot resist those amazing smells, delicious looking dishes and afterwards you can go for a brownie, a hot chocolate or a healthy juice to end your day in sweetness. 


Only negative point is a lack of seating areas, but after all it is street food. 


Awesome selection of really high quality food. Only place to eat in Camden. Try the falafel!


I visited kerb Camden this weekend and found a vast improvement on what the market used to be it now is way cooler and no longer seems dated !!My boyfriend tried Mother Clucker which was amazing and he was blown away and I had The Hot Burger from

Burger & Beyond which was amazing and in my opinion one of the best burgers in London !!we also tried Blue Top and had a icecream sandwich which was outstanding!!!!!

Well Done Kerb !!!

KERB always has a very strong food curatorial team and they've done no different this time round, changing up the entirety of the Camden Market food section. With 35 stalls set up, you're sure to find something you'd like. I went for two of my favourite stalls immediately: Mother Clucker and Kimchinery (which sadly ran out of beef that day). Both were tasty, but if you're heading to Mother Clucker, I recommend getting the small set meal at 6.50 (which is more worth it than the one I got at 10 pounds). I also tried INK, which specialised in fried squid, served with a sze chuan sauce and a side of artisanal mayo. The portion wasn't huge, and it's a little steep at 6 quid, but I still finished every last bite. I'll be back to try more great food, but take note that it gets really hard to navigate between the narrow spaces at times. Leave those backpacks at home, or risk having to apologize when you knock someone's plate over! (no, it didn't happen to me, thankfully)

If you know about Kerb then you know you are in safe hands. For those who don't,it's basically really blooming good street food! A fantastic bunch of eclectic street food on offer,inspired from all different continents around the world. Camden Town needed better street food,finally more on offer than naff noodles and donuts.


I had a paneer wrap,which was yummy. You can get steak,thai buns,ice cream sandwiches,tortilla, burgers......loads! All reasonably priced,you are looking at around £7-£8 per head. 


Positioned right by the lock,giving it a really lovely atmosphere and good places to perch whilst eating.




I decided to visit burger and beyond in Camden market and was disappointed with the quality of the burger. I would recommend trying other stalls.

I have given 1 star but I don't think this place even deserves that.

Finally some better options of street food stalls arrived in Camden! The highlights were the Burger and Beyond burger and the halloumi fries for me. You can find a huge variety of cuisines and options and enjoy your food canal side.
