Recently I came across Hoxton Street Market and I have to say, I rather like it.
I was there for the opening party a few weeks ago and it was great to see people dancing in the streets while enjoying the range of delicious street food on offer. I tried out an amazing Korean salad from Korrito – a Korean/Mexican fusion stall whose signature dish is a Korean Burrito.
But this is no new market. Hoxton Street market has been trading since 1687 but the new stalls are injecting a bit of new life into the street.
Head down on a Saturday and you will find food stalls such as Cannon’s British charcuterie and Hoxton Bakery, alongside beautiful homewares, vintage fashion and handcrafeted accessories including handspun yarns from Sheep of Steel, vintage clothing from Aurelia Dupas and Juan is Dead’s collectables from the afterlife.
