Maltby Street Market
The weather is cooling down here in London, but give me that blue sky and the autumn colours and I don’t mind it one bit. I love a lazy Sunday and this one ended up with a short walk from our place to Maltby Street Market. Open since 2010 you can find this lesser known foodie’s paradise hidden between London Bridge and Bermondsey Stations in the alley known as the Rope Walk. The market starts at 11:00 am on a Sunday, so being a little bit early there was little to no crowd.
I had walked the entire market up and down before I was able to choose what to have! The first stop was The Cheese Truck where my boyfriend ordered the blue cheese, honey and walnut melt. The piles of gooey scotch eggs from Finest Fayre caught my eye, and I ordered the original, which was accompanied by chips and slaw.
There is no shortage of cuisines to choose from Lebanese, Greek, alcoholic stands, dumplings, juices, waffles and more. With vegan and vegetarian dishes also, there is something for everyone.
Continuing our food journey and although feeling full from my scotch egg we ordered “dessert” from The Gyoza Guys. The staff working in this stall were so friendly and funny. The gentleman making the dumplings was a laugh and a half. Seeing as they have made TimeOut London’s best street food 3 years in a row it was no surprise that our pork belly and chive and mixed seafood dumplings were out of this world.
Maltby Street Market is open:
Friday Lunch 12pm-2.30pm
Saturday 10am – 5pm
Sunday 11am to 4pm
Go with an empty stomach and enjoy!
