Street food moves off the street at KERB’s Seven Dials Market.
KERB may have left their Camden Market digs, but the search for a flagship site hasn’t taken very long. They’ve taken ownership of a covered market in Seven Dials, and are aiming to open a huge new street food market in summer 2019. Expect to be spoiled for choice when Seven Dials Market opens, as they’re aiming to fill it with no less than 26 traders.
It’s a pretty big step for KERB, as Seven Dials Market marks their first foray into the undercover market game – where they’ll be competing with the big dogs of Market Halls Victoria, Mercato Metropolitano, and Borough Market. Still, they’ve honed their craft across London, so we’re pretty sure they can handle it. Seven Dials is set to be the West End’s only covered food market, and the position, tantalisingly close to Neal’s Yard and Covent Garden, means it’ll hoover up punters like anyone’s game.
Seven Dials Market will be housed in a former banana warehouse, and they’ll retain a link to the building’s past by hosting fresh produce stalls, along with a rotating cast of street food traders. With 22,000 square feet of space to play with, they’ll have seating for hundreds of hungry visitors, too. It’s another mouthwatering addition to what was already a rather foodie spot, so you’d do well to carve out some time next summer for what’s sure to be a very filling trip.
