There’s a new food market on the block especially for hungry east-end city folk. Although this one may be smaller than the likes of Borough and Spitalfields… it packs a powerful selection of food & flavour. You can’t beat it for a decent Friday lunch.
Attended by some of London’s best street food vendors, ‘Bite’ street food market welcomes a range of independent street food stalls, live music and a pop-up bar – bringing eats and beats to historic Chrisp Street on the last Friday of each month from 11am-3pm. Sept has just taken place proving very popular and the next one is 24th Oct – make note.
Chrisp Street in Poplar, East London has hosted a market selling household goods, clothes, fruit and vegetables and everything in-between since the early 1950s. It’s the perfect spot for Bite to give a platform to the burgeoning food talent in East London.
The food on offer is superb from Lousianna style gumbo and cornbread, to grilled marinated meat, Lebanese wraps, Chinese, Thai and Malaysian pancakes, pulled pork sandwiches and homemade mini brioche, ox cheek, and pulled lamb – some of which start from just £1.50. There’s literally something from every corner of the world.
Bite is located opposite All Saints station, just a four-minute walk away from Canary Wharf on the DLR – well worth a visit to spruce up your Friday! Great work Bite.
