A street market with a unique brand of colour and excitement featuring international street cuisine, artisan grocery foods, ethically traded items, handmade arts, crafts, clothing and jewellery.
The inaugural Store Street Spring Market will take place from Friday 29th to Sunday 31st March 2019. Supported by The Bedford Estates, the market will feature a vibrant, colourful selection of international street cuisine, artisan grocery foods and ethically traded handmade arts and crafts
Visitors will have the opportunity to discover an array of unusual items from around the world. The Famous Last Stand Bar will be serving a range of beer, ale, lager, cider, prosecco, wine and gin, whilst street entertainment will be provided by talented musicians, adding to the festival atmosphere. The Store Street Spring Market will complement Bloomsbury’s independent retailers.
The award-winning gardening team from The Bedford Estates will be holding a series of pop-up workshop demonstrations each day throughout the Store Street Spring Market to show visitors how to grow your own (GYO). Come along and learn all you need to do to be successful and GYO this summer. Not only do home-grown veg look good, they taste good and you get to enjoy the satisfaction of growing the food you eat too! No matter how large or small your garden – or even if you only have a balcony or window sill, the gardeners will show you how to create luscious window boxes full of fresh herbs and juicy salad vegetables. Join them sowing seeds, pricking out seedlings, discussing the tastiest varieties to grow and the merits of using peat-free compost.
The range of fresh street foods on offer will include barbecued meats, burgers with homemade toppings, arepas with chicken, pork or vegetarian options, Thai and Chinese delicacies plus Mexican and Jamaican inspired dishes. Handmade groceries such as vegan cakes, tarts and fritters, crafts, clothing and handmade silver jewellery will also feature strongly in the line-up.
Store Street Spring Market is free to enter and will be open on Friday 29th March from 12pm to 7pm, Saturday 30th March from 10am to 9pm and Sunday 31st March from 11am to 5pm.
Tottenham Court Road, Goodge Street, Holborn and Russell Square tube stations are all within a short stroll.
