London Bridge is getting a new food market

In the last year, London has seen tonnes of food markets open, and London Bridge is the latest area to benefit from one.

Joining the likes of Boxpark, Market Halls and Pop Brixton, Vinegar Yard will be a mix of food, drinks and shopping when it opens its doors on Wednesday 3 April. Found on St Thomas Street, under the direct gaze of The Shard, Vinegar Yard is a mere two minutes’ walk from London Bridge Station and Bermondsey Street.

The market will feature art installations, container pop up shops, bars, street food traders and a sizeable garden area complete with enough outdoor seating to comfortably fit hundreds of people.

Baba G's will serve Indian-style burgers

Open seven days a week from the morning until late, Vinegar Yard already looks set to feature an enviable line-up of street food traders, including Million Pound Menu winners Baba G’s, who will serve Indian-inspired pachos and their signature ‘naanwhiches’.

Elsewhere, you can also expect to chow down on Argentinian-inspired steak and chimichurri from barbecue experts Up in My Grill, as well as burgers and croquette from Nanny Bills. Borough-based coffee experts, The Gentlemen Baristas, will provide an all-day coffee shop and dining space, serving food from breakfast through to late every day of the week.

Coffee cravings will be taken care of via The Gentleman Baristas

An open-air bar will serve cold draught beer and a rotating tap for local craft breweries, while sustainable shopping will be at the forefront of Vinegar Yard’s collection of vintage traders, who will be selling clothing, homeware, books, ceramics, cameras and more. Worried about the often unreliable British weather? Vinegar Yard has an indoor space too!
