Posted September 6, 2019

Looking for the finest veggie + vegan bites in London but don’t want to spend a fortune? Why not try some of the amazing street food from world-famous Markets while you’re roaming around the city. Here’re some of our favourite  spots for Vegan and Veggie Street Food in London.

Camden Lock Market

Camden Market is one of our favourites places to eat. The food is amazing, cheap and when it comes to vegan street food, there are plenty of options to choose from. Depending on what you feel like, you can find vegan fast-food burgers, hot dogs, burritos, pizza, poke bowls. Also, you can find a big range of Chinese, Indonesian, Middle Eastern type of food and many other more, including desserts like ice cream, cookies, cakes and the must try one is the famous halva from SesamMe – It is to die for!


Borough Market

With so many vegan and vegetarian options it will be hard to choose just one thing at Borough Market. We suggest walking through the market to see all the options before you decide. Try a vegan burger from Hanks, they have the Moving Mountains “bleeding vegan” burger that is 100% plant based, it tastes and looks just like a traditional burger. If you are looking for a more traditional English experience, we would recommend you try a pie from the famous Pieminister, they have a creamy vegan chicken pie called “Chooks Away” that is beyond delicious! Make sure to add mash and a side of mushy peas to complete the English experience!

The market has tons of other options including a few Indian stalls serving up authentic vegan and vegetarian dishes. Of course, there is always falafel, who doesn’t like a good falafel wrap? If you fancy something more on the sweet side check out The Free From Bakehouse, they have lots of vegan options. The market also has tons of unique fresh produce and groceries for sale so make sure to have a look before you leave. The market is open every day except Sundays.

Brick Lane

If you’re in London on the weekend, Brick Lane is an area of town you should experience on a Sunday. A vibrant atmosphere accompanied by the vast range of food on offer. Known historically for its array of Indian cuisine; boasting both hidden gems and more commonly well-known spots. Each weekend the Boiler House Food Hall in Brick Lane opens its doors for everyone to enjoy over 30 different multicultural cuisines.

With a vast selection of salads and dishes, Ethiopiques is an authentic representation of traditional Ethiopian food. When in search of somewhere with generous servings -always worth to pay a bit extra for the larger portion – and countless ingredients in each plate, Ethiopiques is a nice option to try a different cuisine! Colourful food combinations with its cultural flavour in its own right.

This little market stall ethio-piqued my interest 👀⁣ ⁣ I’m going to set the scene for you: ⁣ 🚶🏼‍♀️A little, hungry (maybe even on the verge of hangry) London vegan wanders along the South Bank contemplating (maybe even moaning a little about) what she’ll eat in a pretty meat-heavy street food market. Just as she and poor @thebigjolleyvegan (who has had to deal with this spout of hanger) thinks that all hope is lost, they turn a corner and are greeted by the dazzling green of the @ethiopiques tent ⛺️ Her mood dissipates and is replaced by a gigantic, over the top smile (no surprises there) as she realises that this is a 100% vegan Ethiopian stall 😱🌱 ⁣ ⁣ That’s the truth behind this @ethiopiques photo 😂 So, what did we eat and what did we think?⁣ ⁣ 🌱⁣⁣Set mixed plate⁣ 💰£8⁣ ✏️This gives you a chance to try a little bit of everything and every bite was bloody brilliant 😍 There’s a great combination of flavours and you can use the injera to soak up all of them 🤤 Super fresh and left me feeling light! ❓Order Again?⁣⁣ ⁣Yes⁣ ⁣ Ethiopian cuisine doesn’t get enough praise, in my eyes. It’s so vegan friendly, it’s overflowing with flavour, it’s good for ya and it’s deceptively filling. If you haven’t tried Ethiopian food before, I strongly urge you to give it a go!

With these options just being a very small amount of places you can go with an amazing variety of vegan and vegetarian street food, London has many more markets throughout the city all of which cater for all types of dietary requirements. We hope you enjoy our suggestions, be prepared to get a little bit annoyed though as all of the food always smells so good it is very hard to make a decision, so be ready to make more than 1 visit to the markets if you have the time.
