New London Street Food Market – a Q&A with founder Mike Norledge

Hartland Pies (available to buy at Primrose Hill Market, sister to the new Hampstead Food Market starting this weekend) Boom! Hampstead’s getting a new food market, folk. So what’s the deal? In short, the new London street food and produce market is run by the same people behind the successful Primrose Hill market, so there will be a mix of fresh produce and hot street food to take away.

Exclusive: new London street food kitchen from The Bowler

Jez Felwick and his van The Bowler OK here’s some really exciting news for you all. One of my earliest favourite London street food traders is Jez Felwick who, after quitting a life in TV, started up his own grass covered wagon, The Bowler, serving excellent meatballs with pasta, meatball subs and more. He and his black bowler hat have popped up at many a Street Feast, KERB market, and others. Furthermore, not only is he a good cook but also passionate... Read More

How can more people eat London street food? More markets…

Some new London street food traders

  While I am loath to recycle writing material, I realised that my blog has a slightly different audience to that of the London Evening Standard (where I work during the week). Given that my primary aim with LSF has always been to simply to show people what delicious, affordable food there is to eat on the streets of London, I thought it would be OK – in case you missed it on Standard.co.uk – to highlight a piece I wrote about some of... Read More
