These markets have enough options to tickle anyone’s tastebuds

Spotlight on: Vinegar Yard

London Bridge is already a huge foodie hotspot, from Borough Market to Maltby Street, and now there’s a new kid on the block: Vinegar Yard. Just a hop, skip and a jump away from the station, this new street food market is an all-day destination hosting art installations and pop-up shops alongside food and drink traders.

The most iconic of the art installations is the train carriage covered with giant ants whacked right at the entrance to the space, and there's more from Joe Rush, a sculptor who has worked for Glastonbury. On the shopping side of things, Flea London takes over every weekend to make the yard a vintage-lover’s paradise, and other vintage shops pop up during the week as well.

But let’s get to the food. Though the line up changes regularly to keep things fresh, you can expect things along the lines of Baba G’s, Million-Pound Menu winners and general rulers of the street food scene with their Anglo-Indian ‘naanwiches’; Italian vendors Sugo with their ciabattas; and Nanny Bill’s with their comforting, homey mix of croquettes, burgers and more. If that doesn’t sate you, why not just go all in and get a flame-grilled steak from Up In My Grill? One thing’s for sure: at Vinegar Yard, you’re not going to get bored.

Why? With an inside and an outside space, Mercato Metropolitano is a good idea whatever the weather. Plus, their environment- and people-friendly ethos has us feeling good about spending our money there

Flat Iron Square

What? A foodie hub that calls Devonshire House and the railway arches beside it home

Where? London Bridge

Why? This one is for people who are serious about the grub they’re grabbing: Bar Douro, Where The Pancakes Are and more all reside here

Pop Brixton

What? An outside food court made of recycled shipping containers

Where? Brixton

Why? The shipping container aesthetic makes Pop a really fun and idiosyncratic place to spend a lunchtime, plus the Mexican options are divine
