“London is a cultural hub, home to art galleries, festivals, theatres and amazing food markets. From spicy curries in Brick Lane to bakeries in Greenwich, London offers a whole variety of cuisine. In addition, buying products from a market means that you are supporting your local community and having the chance to enjoy authentic, fresh cuisine.
If you are like me and you love travelling, exploring and trying new foods, then you might be interested in finding out about some great food stalls around London. On the weekends, I much prefer to explore the city with my friends – where I often stumble across new places, pop into cafés and try the local food – compared to just staying indoors and playing partypoker with a takeaway pizza by myself. The great thing about food markets is that the produce is fresh and you can see your meal being made right before your eyes. It’s wonderful to walk around a market, look at all the huge pots of food cooking and smelling the different aromas of various cuisines.
Brick Lane is known for its curries and its bustling, vibrant market. In the summer, the cobbled streets become busy with tourists who are eager to try out some of the authentic Indian cuisine, while others admire the colourful scarves and jewellery on sale. Not only is Brick Lane a great place to pick up a fresh curry, but there are plenty of vintage clothes shops and music stores to explore. Brick Lane is also known for its bagels. Two very popular cafés sell huge bagels very cheaply and stuff them with salt beef and mustard.
Another great place to pick up food is Greenwich market which is home to a whole variety of food stalls. Greenwich market is a much more up-market place than Brick Lane; the prices are higher but the quality of the food is exquisite. You can choose from many worldwide cuisines, from sushi and German sausages, to jerk chicken curries and Italian olives and breads.”
