Time Out says

Opened in 2019 by Benj Scrimgeour – who also founded the nearby Flat Iron Square and long-lost nightclub The Arches – this largely open-air market in a former car park sits directly underneath the Shard and exactly halfway between Borough Market and Maltby Street, but the wealth of excellent foodie fare elsewhere in the area hasn’t stopped it from becoming a hugely popular spot with tourists, office workers and weekend crowds alike. 

An urban garden open seven days a week, it features a plethora of great food stalls including Indian-inspired burger joint Baba G’s, pan-Asian street food peddler Nik’s Kitchen and Neopolitan slice slingers the Bad Boy Pizza Society, as well as vintage clothing and antiques traders, and a bar offering a rotating roster of local beers.

Travelling market Flealondon takes up residence each weekend, while the big screens always attract a large crowd for key sporting fixtures throughout the summer. There are even bonkers installations by artist-in-residence Joe Rush of Mutoid Waste, best known for his scrap-metal sculptures at Glasto. Ignore the name: this place won’t leave a sour taste.
