kerb to open indoor market in seven dials
KERB know a thing or two about running a street food market – they’ve popped up across London and been home to some mega traders over the years – and now they’re heading indoors with a massive covered market opening in Seven Dials this autumn. Taking over a 22,000 sqft former banana warehouse, KERB’s Seven Dials Market will be home to a range of street food traders and new talent as well as Cucumber Alley, where businesses will be able to stock deli produce and fresh bread, plus a florist and a bookshop.
There’ll be a strong female line-up of traders with the likes Club Mexicana, Yum Bun, INK, Square Root and Rice Guys all setting up shop inside. Club Mexicana will be doing a taco-focused menu, you’ll be able to get steamed buns and yakitori from Yum Bun, Rice Guys will be doing Chinese bowls like iberico pork char-sui over rice, INK will serve up fritto misto and battered fish, and Square Root will be building an alcohol-free bar.
The team behind Camden’s Cheese Bar will also be trading inside the market with Pick & Cheese, a conveyor belt set-up where you’ll be able to choose from 25 different British cheese and condiment combos, like fresh ricotta with sherry-infused cherries. There’ll also be grilled cheese sarnies and even cheese-flavoured soft serve to choose from. Yo Sushi but for cheese? We are in.
The two headline restaurants for the market have also been revealed; one is fresh pasta concept Strozzapreti from the Franco Manca founders and the other is Nanban, a second outpost of Tim Anderson’s Japanese restaurant. And after closing both their respective restaurants, Monty’s Deli and Claw are moving into the market too.
