Best Food Parks in South London

Where to eat the city's best street food!

There’s nothing quite like the unique flavour that comes from Street Food. Dishes from all over the world can be found in every corner of London but the new food parks have gathered the best together and offer an exquisite experience of niche culinary bites. Here we have gathered the best you can find in South London so you don’t have to travel all the way to central to taste cuisine from other countries.

Mercato Metropolitano

The small community that conforms Mercato Metropolitano brings some of the best food in the area. Small-scale farmers, local producers and members of the local community have built an area where not only can you find Turkish, Indian, Mexican, Lebanese and Italian food; but also a yoga studio, moving picture cinema and live bands to play for all the guests. It’s truly a place to visit to enjoy the day in the best environment.

Vauxhall Street Food Garden

This is almost a secret spot as the entry isn’t very visible but once you’re there, you’ll realise why it’s being kept under wraps. Vauxhall Street Food Garden might be small but the dishes it offers make up for the size of the venue. Here you can find the finest gourmet food, which includes burgers, Italian, crepes and waffles, Greek cuisine, and Asian food. They hold events every weekend so it’s your perfect excuse to ditch the clubs and have a more chilled Friday.

Pop Brixton

Disco may never die in this side of London and Pop Brixton brings it up to a next level. With a dancing square perfectly set up for the weekends, the music boosts up while the hanging disco ball takes you back to the days when David Bowie walked around the area. Make sure you visit the great cocktail stalls they have, as you can taste local gin and beer. You can also try out Latin American food from Venezuela and Mexico, Caribbean treats or Asian classics like Cantonese food, sushi and even Ramen. There’s certainly something for everyone–including vegan!

You can also find events on the weekends like Yoga and fitness classes, themed days and even vintage clothes market.
