There are very few places better equipped to while away your weekend hours than Broadway Market.
Stuffed with all sorts of goodness, from savory to sweet, cheesy to green, meaty to veggie, and a few nick nacks and fashion stalls thrown in for good measure.
This Saturday grab a gaggle of your favourite people and meet them there.
Lazy grazing in London’s spring sunshine is hard to beat.
Four legged friends are welcome too, of course.
As are short legged, little friends.
You’ll find food from all over the globe.
Crunchy, fresh banh mi.
Open Scandi sandwiches, topped with thick sliced smoked salmon.
Groceries in abundance, all plucked from nearby farms.
Homewares and trinkets.
It’s a carnivore’s dream come true!
And quite the spot for carb lovers too.
Oh, and chocoholics!
There’s a good chance that you’ll want to take a break from grazing, and there are plenty of cafes dotted around.
You must stop for a cuppa, it’s the British way.
Cuddled up for a much needed rest, and digestion break!
Once you’ve recovered, walk up to the top end of the market, away from the river.
Pay The Meringue Girls a visit.
And then stroll over to the right.
You’ll quickly come across The School Yard, which is funnily enough, a school yard!
But instead of giggling children, toys and grazed knees, today you’ll find some of the best street food in London.
Buns of the sweet and savory kind.
Fragrant, hot, spicy, fresh laksa.
And one of the main reasons for my visit, The Dumpling Shack.
Squidgy little dumplings, handmade in front of you.
Fried up to order, with all the toppings you could hope for.
Between meals there’s always time for a little shopping.
I found a wonderful woman who turns her pictures into silk scarves.
(You’ve already seen me wearing this on Snapchat – @rosielondoner – and as promised, here’s where you can find her!)
Our final snack of the day came from Burma King.
Spicy beef or jack fruit sandwiches, topped with a crunchy slaw, sweet potato fries and sweet mango.
Their unbelievably fresh secret sauce is made by a friend of mine, and you have to try it!
Once you’re stuffed fit to bust, cross the road over to the park and lap up some of that sunshine you’ve missed all winter.
Repeat every Saturday for best results.
Find the market here, 9-5 Saturdays, take cash and go hungry!
