A Hidden Gem – Maltby Street Market

A lively London market with a combination of stalls, under-arch shops, pop-up bars and eateries; Maltby Street Market in Bermondsey offers fresh produce, including breads, meats and cheeses.

Food offerings include seafood and grilled meat from Cornish Grill, Greek oils, honeys, preserves and cured meats from Maltby and Greek, Reubens sandwiches and Jewish chicken soup from Monty’s Deli, oysters and sous vide cooked meats to reheat at home from Market Gourmet, preserves and pickles from Pink’s Organics, and pastries, cakes and other baked goods from Comptoir Gourmand. Another recent addition at Ropewalk is the under-arch Tozino tapas bar, Spanish grocers and ham carvery.

No market would be complete without a coffee stall, and the Ropeway’s coffee cart is Coffee, Mate. Also on offer in the beverage department are wines from Life’s a Bottle and classy gin cocktails at the pop-up Sparrow Bar put on by small-batch London gin distillers Little Bird Gin.
