I’ve been visiting Leather Lane market each week, for over three years. Though it’s close to my work, it’s not the proximity, nor the convenience that has me returning time and time again.
Leather Lane market spans the entire length of the lane, nestled snuggly between trend-setting Clerkenwell and diamond-clad Hatton Garden. Historically Leather Lane market was a classic bric-a-brac market, it has stayed true to this, to some extent, still selling a bit of everything from fruit, fresh flowers to fantastic coffee.
The reason I go to Leather Lane though is not for any of those above though. In recent years Leather Lane has become a haven for those working in local businesses to sample some truly fantastic cuisine. Amongst the cheap clothes and fruit and veg stalls is some of London’s most delicious street food. Office workers go in swarms to graze the eclectic mix of street food.
There’s everything from Indonesian, Classic British, Jamaican to BBQ. My personal favourite dish comes from Victus and Bibo, who serve a legendary lamb and halloumi wrap, packed with flavour. It has a balance of succulent meat, salty cheese, crunchy salad and punchy chilli perfectly enveloped within flatbread.
Having grown up in London I’ve been spoiled by the variety and cultural melting pot that is the foodie scene here. We have every type of cuisine here and you don’t have to wander too far to find something new. Leather Lane’s innovative, flavourful food sets it apart from other markets in East London and the City.
Leather Lane market is just a stones-throw from Chancery Lane underground station and open from 10am to 2pm; it’s well worth a visit if you’re nearby and looking for lunch somewhere which is still a bit of a hidden gem!
