Isn’t it great when you find new places in your city? One of the (many) beauties of London is that there are so many great places, just waiting to be found.
On Sunday morning we looked online for markets in London, knowing that we’d been to a lot, to see if there were any we hadn’t. We discovered this list and set of to Maltby Street Market, which I hadn’t even heard of! (Have you?). Armed with city mapper we set off on our way to find it.
It’s very different from a lot of London markets as it’s much smaller in size; it’s one, short road. But, it’s packed full of lovely food.
You can choose to eat in one of the indoor cafes or from one of the outdoor stalls. Due to the freezing temperatures, we opted for indoors and found ourselves in Comptoir Gourmand, where they served the biggest croissants I’ve ever seen!
We’d had breakfast, so settled for some delicious alternatives and you definitely can’t go wrong with spinach, onion and goats cheese. It was so very delicious!Carlos went for the cheese and ham.All washed down with Hot Chocolate.
Before re-walking the rest of the market and picking up a delicious fig and pecan sourdough loaf, and some honey beer.
What’s your favourite market? Have you been to Maltby Street Market?
I’ve been to some amazing markets in London but I haven’t been to this one! I would love to visit all of them (I LOVE Markets) so I’ll have to try to catch this one next time I’m in London!
It was a great find! I’m a fellow market lover, is there any better way to spend a weekend than perusing them? 🙂
I love London and this is such a cute market! Perfect to visit the time I’m in London! Those croissants look amazing! I’m glad I came across your blog on the Travel Tuesday Link Up 🙂
I’m excited to try the croissants next time! They looked so deliciously flaky, yum! Glad to have found your blog too 🙂
I haven’t been to London yet but would be all over the markets when I do get the chance to visit! That hot chocolate looks so good!
There are so so many great markets in London so you’d love it!
I never visited Maltby Street Market when I lived in London. I love the flags though – reminds me of Dublin! This is one of the things I miss most about London – there’s something new to explore down every street!
So true! I’ve lived in London for 19 of my 26 years and I still find new places 🙂
Ah, Maltby is my absolute favourite – I love it there 😀
So glad I discovered it!
I love markets! Love all the food stands and your food just looks so delicious!
It was all great, too much food to taste for just one trip!
I love London markets, but never heard of this one, will have to check it out some day 🙂 I like Broadway market myself, especially if the weather is nice and one more reason for visiting is Climpson and Sons coffee shop, which is one of my faves.
I’ve only just recently heard of Broadway Market, and I’m planning to go very soon 🙂 Markets in the summer are just lovely… hurry up spring 😉
Oh, yum! This is one of London’s markets I still haven’t made it to yet, but I’ve been hearing so much about it lately that I think I need to make the time pronto! Everything in this post makes my mouth water!
You should definitely take a trip there, I can’t believe I hadn’t heard about it sooner!
London has such fantastic markets, so I’ve heard & seen, because I’ve never been to any myself yet. Next time I think I’m going to skip most of the typical tourist sights and seek out places like these 🙂
Agreed! I always try to advise people on going to more of the real parts of London, rather than just the touristy spots!
Wow! Fellow Londoner myself and I too hadn’t heard of this market till now! Which market is your favourite? I have to admit I sadly haven’t been to many!!
But your breakfast with goats cheese looks lovely!
Will definitely save the list of markets to put on a to-do list!
You should definitely check it out! My favourite market is Brick Lane Sunday Up Market – I love all the global foods they have 🙂 I’ll probably write a post on it soon Which is yours?
That sounds great! I’ll definitely go in my half term!
I’m soon going to portobello – so I’ll have to let you know my thoughts on that one 🙂
One of the best food markets in London, good work! Although you missed St Johns custard doughnuts 😳
I’d love to have tasted something from evey stall… But, that would have been a bit excessive 😉 It means I can try those doughnuts next time!
