Broadway Market, a place where food lovers and thrift shoppers unite.
Broadway Market is a great little venture if you are ever wandering around East London and have a few extra hours to spare. Nestled in-between London Fields and Regents Canal, it is the perfect spot to grab some food and enjoy a beverage whilst listening to talented buskers and watching the quirky London world go by. Its farmers market boasts a wide range of food stalls including artisan cheese and bread, olives, fresh bakes, gelato and organic meat, fruit and veg.
The Heavenly Halloumi burger from The Veggie Table is a must - whether you're vegetarian or not. The combination of halloumi cheese with organic carrots, courgettes, mint and coriander will make you think twice about having a meat burger ever again.
If you get thirsty, there is a vast array of pubs to choose from. However, we decided to opt for the frozen cocktails (strawberry daiquiri or mojito) that were being passed through a hole in the wall by The Souls Bar. £5 per cup, these drinks definitely have a kick to them as we found out after only one, and are made with truly fresh ingredients, aside from being delicious and refreshing – much needed after escaping the throngs and the summer sun.
Broadway market also has a large selection of thrifty clothes stalls where you can find printed shirts galore and a denim jacket or fifty. The market has it all – you can even find the most obscure purchases such as origami necklaces.
