Every car park, rooftop and towpath at the more trendy end of London is filling up fast with food trucks, fancy cocktails and, if you're lucky, the odd art installation. Red Market, one of London's first pop-up street food markets (est. 2011) has now reopened for another season of alfresco revelry. Food this year includes tandoor-cooked rotis from the head chef of Whitechapel Punjabi restaurant Tayyabs and pizzas from Voodoo Ray's in Dalston. There will also be cocktails, DJ sets and a fake beach. What more could you wish for in the capital? Good weather, perhaps?

Quality teas and coffee is a focus here, with at least 15 different types of single-origin coffee on offer, as well as their own espresso blend and tea from various global regions. They're served alongside pastries, cakes and cookies (some of which re gluten-free), plus fresh sandwiches and juices.
