The south London iteration of Street Feast is back for another summer of booze, fun and excellent street food. Lewisham's night-time food party takes place in an abandoned 1950s covered market in Lewisham, and delicious portable dinners are served by the likes of Rola Wala, Mother Flipper and Spit and Roast. Booze comes in many varieties, most notably alcoholic slushies and shandies served from an old hair salon. Find a spot among the outdoor and indoor eating spaces, or head up to the rooftop to catch the evening sun.

Lewisham isn't exactly local for me (I live at least an hour away), but I decided to meet some friends here on a Friday night a couple of weeks ago. I was surprised I had a pay a few quid to enter- it's the sort of thing I'd expect after 9, not just after 7 - and I ended up paying nearly £20 on food, so you don't really come here for cheap eats. But the vibe is awesome and you can easily make a night of it.
Nice to have something in Lewisham but rather disappointing.
It's really small so the choice is rather limited and food stops being served at 10pm. There isn't any entertainment so there are definitely some improvements to be made.
A welcome addition to the Lewisham scene, Model Market brings a vibe hitherto unknown to the neighbourhood. It is genuinely cool, and showcases the multicultural diversity of Lewisham.
A perfect place to hang out in the sun, with a cocktail (if you don't mind paying North-of-the-river prices in the South), or a glass of wine from the more reasonably priced and rather charming record shop/wine bar Winyl.
Spontaneous dancing circles form around the fire pits, and there is a greater sense of community than in the larger markets. However, the smaller scale also means that less choice is available, and unlike its Shoreditch and Dalston counterparts, Lewisham's Model Market is yet to establish itself as a gourmet destination. Here is to hoping that it will!
