Time Out says

Independent street food traders - from paella to poutine - gather every Thursday, Friday and Saturday at this lively market on Rupert Street.

However strong your resolve to take a packed lunch to work every day, if you work in Soho, there’s always the lure of Street Food Union, a collection of a dozen or so street-food stalls that set up shop on Rupert Street every Thursday, Friday and Saturday (11am–3.30pm). Some traders, such as pulled-pork burger maestros Dixie Union, have been with Street Food Union almost since the beginning, but newcomers are frequently added to the line-up, which also regularly includes the likes of Laffa, with their generously filled Mediterranean-style flatbread wraps, Radical Roots and their vibrant, health-conscious salads, and Hot Mess Poutine. Stall owners pride themselves on opening whatever the weather, and nothing on the collective menu costs above a tenner. On sunny days, sit at the bright-yellow benches and tables to chow down. You can always eat that packed lunch for dinner.

Small selection of carefully chosen traders makes this market a great option for a quick lunch in the heart of Soho. Open Monday to Saturday for lunch only, get there early to have your pick, as popular choices such as the yummy duck wrap tend to sell out early. And bring cash too, as most traders don't accept card. A few tables are available, but it's more of an on-the-go kinda of option for a tasty meal that will support local traders.


Steet Food Union operates all year and offers some of the best street food I've ever tasted! I haven't visited since last summer as I've been trying to eat a bit healthier and save some money but my packed lunch simply cannot compete with the food available here. The food is best enjoed on a sunny London day (they do exist I promise) on one of the benches provided or I prefer to go to Golden Square for a bit more space. The standout meals I've had were a surf and turf burger and the duck wrap, so incredibly YUM!

The duck roll with cheese, salad and peri peri sauce is one of the nicest things I've had (costing only £7). Always look forward to this on Friday lunchtimes and keeps me full for the next 6-7 hours! I would also recommend the pulled pork burger and the chicken with halloumi cheese on flatbread. You simply can't go wrong with any of the above choices!
