Two weeks ago the team at KERB confirmed they were temporarily closing their West India Quay market after five years, saying “we gave it a good go”, but like many hospitality businesses at the moment it became unviable as daily sales dropped by 90%. So, it’s good to see the recent announcement that they are launching a new lunchtime spot on the pedestrianised South Molton Street in Mayfair.
A short walk from Bond Street station, the market is bringing back some of the capital’s favourite street food traders. Vendors will change weekly, and kicking things off are CODE’s 30 under 30 alumni Utter Waffle, seafood specialists Calamari Canteen, as well as climate-friendly burgers from GROUND and home of the first African burrito Jollof Mama. Other traders include Ehla serving eastern Mediterranean food, Sweet Chimney Bakers and Yaay Yaay offering Thai street food.
Open Wednesday to Friday each week, the market launches next Friday 5 November. So if you’re nearby, be sure to check it out and support the traders.
