Eating My Way Through London: Maltby Street Market

Maltby Street Market is a hidden gem, a quirky version of its neighbour Borough Market, although without the crowds and the tourists. It is bustling and vibrant, offering a selection of groceries, breads, meats and cheeses.

However, it is also ideal for lunch and I defy anyone to walk down there and not feel their stomachs rumbling, no matter how recently they’ve eaten.

It’s a bit of a task to find (although not for us, as Ruud lives around the corner from it), however once found, it’s definitely worth a repeat visit. Nestled under a railway bridge, it is a crowded tunnel of aroma and colour, with a blend of cuisines from around the world.

The Ethiopian food stall is highly recommended, although next time I really want to try one of the matcha brownies from Bad Brownie.

The market is only open at weekends and closes early evening.
