Exploring the Food of Greenwich Market - Greenwich, London SE10
There has been a market at Greenwich from before 1700 - that's a long, long time! The current market is open five days a week, closing on Monday and Tuesday. It is a sensation to sight, sound and most important to me smell!!
The market is made up of craft stall holders which take up two thirds of the square, the other third is taken up by the most amazing food stall holders. From Thai to Tapas, from delis to drinks, it really is a fantastic experience.
Some of the most memorable stalls include the deli stall with a mountain of cheese and salami and the paella stalls with their gigantic paella pans. There are baked goods, fried good, curried, spicy. Sicilian Rice Balls, Ethiopian Vegetarian, Texan BBQ! Is your mouth watering yet?
There isnt just savory here though, check out the Brazilian hot doughnut stall, and the crepe makers! Yum!
Feeling thirsty after all that food? Try the juice bars, and the cider bars!....
Dont forget the edges of the market, there's Hola Paella - everything Spanish! Fabulous tea shops too - possibly for that mid afternoon snack......
As the evening draws in why not hit the many pubs in Greenwich, two of which are on two corners of the market....The Coach and Horses and The Admiral Nelson.....
Phew, full yet? There is so much to eat and drink at the market - you will have to ensure you go again just to try everything! Bon Appétit
