Time Out says

The workaholics of Clerkenwell and Hoxton descend upon this energetic food market every Thursday and Friday for a slap-up lunch on the go. Follow your nose, or gravitate towards the vans with snaking queues, always indicators of quality grub. A world of cuisine means everyone is catered for. Luardo's, purveyor of Latin-American street food, is a good bet, with fluffy burritos that may rival some of Mexico's best offerings; keep an eye out for their mint-green vintage Citro'n van. Another hit with regulars is Mario and Carol's Italian food stall, where an order of classic Roman-style grub comes with friendly banter from the opinionated yet charming Mario.

An incredible selection of market stalls with mouth-watering dishes at great prices and just a stones throw away from Old Street. Be warned though - it gets very busy so you'll want to get there early to avoid the queues!


This is a terrific neighborhood market, with a little something for everyone. The Turkish wraps are especially good. 


One of the original street food markets and oldest, Whitecross was cool before the days of Street Feast and Bermondsey etc! The traders have been here at this market for years now, and their experience shows with how quickly they churn out wraps, pizzas, noodles, curries and whatever else you fancy from this market. 

It gets mega busy after 12, but the queues move fast and best of all, you can stuff yourself with food for pretty much just £5. 3 curries and rice? Sorted. Vietnamese noodles? Sorted. Cakes and pastries? Easy. A vegan buddha bowl that has won awards for how damn good it is? Still sorted! 

I come here quite frequently now due to the prices and variety of choice, and is a true gem that should definitely have a lot more attention. Definitely try the buddha bowl, get the wraps, and get the lahmacun! Fantastic food! 


Awesome. I absolutely love it here. They do burritos and wraps the size of your forearm! It does get exceptionally busy.


This food market is an absolute joy. Venison burgers, pulled pork wraps, Pad Thai, Brazilian BBQ, Greek salads, buckwheat wraps, Italian food…the list goes on.

Sure it’s busy on a Thursday and Friday, but if you’re not a fan of crowds why not come on a Tuesday – it’s here all week! Even if you do have to queue it’s pretty fast paced and the wafting aromas just mean that your mouth is watering and ready to chow down by the time you get your lunch. It’s totally worth it.


If you’re in the area, it’s worth hitting up.

This market has a phenomenal range of food – seriously, a world of cuisine is on offer for you to choose from – from Turkish wraps and Italian pasta to buckwheat crêpes and chocolate cookies. Enjoy yourself; prices are reasonable and you’ll easily spend only a fiver on your meal. Yum!

Relly I missed this market but in my next visit sure I will go to taste some food after I watched food network.
