#LeithsLoves - Our Favourite Food Markets

Since #LeithsLoves a food market so much, we thought we’d comprise a little black book of our favourites. Here’s what we came up with...

Coffee and freshly baked pastry in hand, nothing beats a Saturday morning stroll through your favourite bustling food market. At Leiths we celebrate the diversity and variation of food every day, and there’s no better place to appreciate a world of different foods than amongst a thriving market place.

Victoria Park Market

Test your taste buds with new flavours at Victoria Park Market in Hackney. London’s favourite dessert stalls such as Cross Town Doughnuts are there every week to sweeten up your Sunday, as well as an exciting array of new start-ups. The market is brought alive with the colours of fresh seasonal fruit and veg ready to take home for Sunday lunch, or Finest Fayre are waiting with their British scotch eggs to devour on the go. Enjoy a refreshment with a kick at Compassion Kombucha which is available on tap, so bring your own container and stock up!

Brixton Village and Market Row

Soak up the hipster atmosphere at Brixton Village and Market Row. Start your day with a classic brunch and a cup of house roasted coffee at Burnt Toast. Get lost in an emporium of fresh produce, copious amounts of eateries, coffee shops and vintage all-sorts. Cornercopia is certainly worth a visit for anyone looking to kit out their home and kitchen with a selection of beautiful, curious things. Browse through a collection of enamel pie tins, cast iron pots, measuring and preserving utensils, foraging tools, and locally handmade food including Brixton bees’ honey. After a day of exploration take a seat at Champagne & Fromage for a flute of fizz and a board of French cheese and charcuterie.

Borough Market

We would struggle to talk food markets without mentioning London’s iconic food and drink hub, Borough Market. Fall in love with the site dating back to at least the 12th century and soak up the true market-style hustle and bustle. While it’s true that it can be crowded with tourists, we still think it‘s one of the best places in London for culinary discovery. You can buy amazing produce from Rhug Farm and Chegworth Valley, sample Alpine meats and Sussex cheese, buy fresh beetroot ravioli to take home, or sit on stools eating handmade empanadas with friends. They host a great range of events too – don’t miss the Borough Market Cookbook Club. In short, we’re big fans.

Duke of York Square Market

Revel in the wholesome scene of fine produce at the Duke of York Square Market on King’s Road. Curated by Partridges, the Fine Food Market offers artisanal and locally produced meat, game, fish, bread, cakes and much more. There is even a dumpling van offering handcrafted dumplings using only the best of British produce. Most importantly, don’t forget to grab your lunchtime loaf from Wapping Sourdough, you will be spoilt for choice!

Brockley Market

A vibrant wonderland of fresh produce and trendy traders. Visit the Vadasz Deli stall teeming with sauerkraut, kimchi, pickles and relishes to satisfy all of your fermentation needs. Warm up your morning at the Good & Proper Tea bar or get the weekend started with an impressive range of natural wines, cocktails and craft beer. Freshly caught quality seafood is also on offer, including freshly shucked oysters to indulge in from Veasey & Sons Fishmongers.
