Victoria Park Market

Time Out says

A weekly food market in the heart of Victoria Park.

Victoria Park Market is one of a new breed of markets that have opened thanks, in part, to gentrification and renewed interest in avoiding supermarket chains. There are seasonal fruit and vegetables artfully laid out to entice as well as quality organic meat and fresh fish. You’ll also find locally baked bread, charcuterie, cheeses, olives, local honey and herbs and spices. The market operates every Sunday from 10am-4pm – the perfect time to pick up brunch or lunch, such as a grilled cheese sandwich or Mexican fried chicken. There’s sometimes live jazz there too.

In news that will surprise absolutely no one, all London markets are amazing and brilliant and you should go and visit every single one of them. But I fear not all get the same publicity and others and I feel it's time for Victoria Park Market to have its time in the limelight.


It's not huge but the smell, the aroma is incredibly enticing, from the steak and chips to the moreish vegan burgers, to the beautiful sweet delights of macarons. You can also purchase organic fresh, artisanal produce from local, independent sellers to take home.

The best part about it is that it's set in the beautiful scenery of Victoria Park itself which means you don't have to fight for space on a bench. Just simply hop across a few meters, set the picnic blanket and tuck in.


It's the place to be on a beautiful sunny day and even a walk there along the canal from Mile End station is picturesque and relaxing too. Well worth visiting and spending a nice, gentle Sunday afternoon.

Victoria Park Food Market located in between Bonner and Gore Gate on a pedestrianised street called The Nightwalk has a friendly, country feel as soon as you arrive. With lovely stalls ranging from flowers, produce, cheese, cakes, gin, wine, pies, meat and hot food, the market covers it all. It is great for just a wander with plenty of nibbles and engaging market stall holders, perfect for a warming lunch with delicious food stalls and places to sit and fabulous for picking up top quality products to enjoy at home or to give as gifts.

A nice addition to the east London weekend market scene. More Broadway than Brick Lane, but minus the crowds.

You can find here a great selection of products and take away foods from local businesses and international cuisines. It’s totally worth visiting as apart from familiar flavours there are quite a few players on the ground. Sesame City selling freshly made savoury and sweet sesame pastes, like salted caramel tahini. Urban fermentery offering decent kimchi and kombucha. My favourite stall is probably the one with Sicilian sweets. I’m a sucker for cannoli and freshly made amaretti, so I can’t be more happy to have these guys so near to my house.

Vegans won’t be disappointed either as there are a few stalls with vegan options. There's a gorgeously looking burger stall all vegan and at another you can even buy a vegan curry wurst.

If none of this interests you, you can simply come to buy your basics. There’s more than one organic veg stall, at least one with meats and another with dairy, while at the Isle of Wight tomatos you can select the well known veg in all shades and shapes.

One visit was not enough to try all the new kids on the clock, but I think the walks in Victoria Park will be my new Sunday routine, one stall at a time.

I love love love Victoria Park Market and now that it's autumn there's no other place to be on a Sunday morning or afternoon to buy delicious treats, fresh seasonal vegetables, pastries, and other things you don't need but want to get from the loveliest stands imaginable. They have two incredible cheese stands, one with chorizo and other types of meats, one dedicated exclusively to Italian pastries, a German bakery, one only for truffles, and even a stand for dog snacks. There is also a stand where they sell a mushroom pate (which they also sell in Borough Market) and I cannot get enough of this stuff.It's unbelievably tasty. They even take card at some of the stands so no excuses! Perfect lazy Sunday activity in London's loveliest park.
