Canopy Market at King’s Cross

OPENED 198 DAYS AGO

Canopy Market is a new food, drink and craft market at King’s Cross, open every weekend, with live music on Friday evenings.

King’s Cross is becoming quite the destination for street food and drink – don’t forget one of London’s best street food markets KERB also have a site here.

The Spot:

The market revives a historic site and there’s a stunning Victorian glass and steel roof. In the 1800’s, this was home to a potato and Sunday fish market. Now as much as we love both potatoes and fish, the offerings are a little more exciting in 2018…

On Friday evenings there is live music as part of ‘Canopy Sessions’ hosting musicians and DJs, and the market stays open late too.

The Food:

Producers include Bread Ahead, one of London’s best British bakers, particularly famous for their doughnuts which burst with vanilla cream or chocolate fillings (they also now have a Bread Ahead branch in Soho if you find yourself around that way with a desperate craving for dough). World of Zing is here too, with their line-up of punchy chilli sauces, globally influenced marinades, spice mixes and just about anything else that will give your food a flavour boost.

There’s street food from Growlers, who make hefty Portuguese sandwiches called prego, which are messy, sloppy and as they put it very much ‘not first date food.’ Although, if your date doesn’t enjoy getting involved with saucy steak sandwiches then they can find another love interest as far as we’re concerned…

Arancini Brothers, BAP Korean and Big Melt (grilled cheese sandwiches) are also there along with a spot for guest traders, including Slingin’ Po’ Boys and Le Bao.

The Drinks:

There’s freshly ground coffee, plus beer from Craft Beer Rising, English wine from Redhill Farm Estate and cocktails for those evenings with live music. We all shop better when tipsy, right?

The Damage:

Prices vary between traders but think average street food prices (£5-10 per item) and you’re on the right track.

In a Nutshell:

London’s market scene just goes from strength to strength, doesn’t it? The same goes for King’s Cross. What was once a dreary and very undesirable area of London is fast becoming a foodie hotspot.
