We’re back in lockdown again but outdoor markets are allowed to stay open for takeaway food and drink only (obviously with social distancing rules and safety measures still in place). If you’re ready to get out for a bit of open air shopping, these are the markets currently open in London.
Victoria Park Market – Victoria Park Market is staying open with the produce stalls in their regular location (with entry limited) and the street food traders spaced out further up the park to make room for queues.
Westgate Street Market – this new produce, street food and lifestyle market, which opened back in October, is running every Saturday at London Fields Primary School with traders including The Fish Stall, French Comte, Pasta e Basta, Galeta Bakery and Bottlebrush Ferments.
Borough Market – London’s most iconic market has managed to remain open and provide essentials during the pandemic but now that restrictions are easing, more traders are returning. Hot food and coffee will be available to takeaway, and that means away from the market as communal seating is still out of action.
Netil Market – the market by London Fields is running with food from BAO, Sonora, Lucky Chip, The Bagel Guys and Treats Club. Entry to the market is restricted to ensure distancing can be maintained and all seating areas are closed for the moment.
Broadway Market – after getting shut down briefly for being too busy, Broadway Market is back in action with stalls on Saturday and hot food on Sundays, a significantly reduced capacity and a new queuing system.
Brockley Market – the South London market is open on Saturdays with produce and street food to takeaway but there’s no lingering allowed and you must wear a face mask when shopping.
Lloyd Park Market – like its sister market in Vicky Park, the Walthamstow market is open on Saturdays, selling fresh fruit and veg, organic meat, locally baked bread, deli items and street food. The market has moved onto the front lawn by the William Morris Gallery to make more space for the stalls and to allow socially distanced queuing.
Maltby Street Market – the stalls along the Ropewalk are in action at the weekends with produce and street food for takeaway only, and there’s a one-way system through the market to comply with social distancing.
Venn Street Market – you can still pick up produce and street food from the likes of Makatcha, Hop & Roll, Vinn Goute and La Cocinita at Venn Street Market, which is running 10am – 3pm on Saturdays.
Camden Market – selected food stalls at Camden Market, like Ugly Dumpling, Lords of Poke, Yorkshire Burrito, Bill or Beak and The Cheese Wheel are open takeaway service. A new one-way system has been put in place and hand sanitiser stations have also been installed around the market.
Greenwich Market – the historic market is open for takeaway food only. The layout has been modified to allow for enough space between each one, with signs in place to direct customers.
Brixton Village – it may be a covered market but Brixton Village is still open with traditional traders like Esme’s, Nour C&C, Latin and Carribbean Food Store and Jeffries Fishmongers open to shop from, with takeaway available from the likes of Fish Wings & Tings, Jalisco, Kao Sarn, Mamalan, Black Bear Burger and more.
