There are many great things about London, the fashion, the multiculturalism, the bustling nightlife (that is soon to return when restrictions allow). The list goes on and on, but there is one thing I haven’t mentioned – and that is the FOOD.

London is home to 16,963 restaurants and you can bet that each of them is different in every way imaginable. However, you’re reading to know about the best food markets in London. 

1. Borough Market

Borough Market is possibly London’s most historic and iconic food market. It’s known to be home to a multitude of prepared foods, but also offers a variety of fruits, vegetables and more. This food market that dates back to the 11th century caters to the foodies and also those who just want fresh produce.

If you’re ever in the area, be sure to pick up a meat pie from Ginger Pig and a baguette at Bread Ahead, perhaps you’d like some cheese and saucissons – in that case, The French Comté is the place for you.

2. Maltby Street Market

Located directly beside rail tracks in Bermondsey, is the smaller but just as diverse food market – The Maltby Street Market. On weekends you’ll find masses of locals take to this market on the weekends to enjoy the tasty morsels they purchase from the stalls that litter the streets. 

There are many great things about this market but the one that stands out for us is The Cheese Truck. They’ll give you a grilled cheese sandwich like you have never seen before. 

If this mouthwatering, grilled to perfection, cheese sandwich doesn’t leave you wanting more – you might have to get your tastebuds checked. However, if you aren’t a cheesy person there is much, much more to this food market. 

As you explore this market you’ll soon realise it is home to some top-notch food vendors, serving Vietnamese pho, Chinese dumplings and Belgian waffles that’ll make your taste buds tingle with excitement. 

After eating your fill you can roll your way to one of ten different microbreweries or park yourself at Hiver Beers and wash your worries away.

3. Mercato Metropolitano

To finish off this delicious list we are going to talk about one of our most favourite food markets in London – and that is Mercato. With an area totalling 45,000 sq ft, Mercato Metropolitano is home to more than 40 vendors, a microbrewery and several community projects. 

This market is perfect for a summertime motive and is home to dishes from around the world, all made with fresh ingredients that are locally sourced. This culinary cornucopia gives you options to discover food from Italy, Japan, Columbia, Germany, Vietnam, Argentina and more. 

At Mercato, you can take your taste buds on a journey around the world without going anywhere.
