Weekends at Maltby Street are getting bigger and better, with at least 20 more market traders joining the fleet.

Building on its success as a street food hotspot, Maltby Street is also catering to locals, who can stock up on supplies for the weekend with fruit and vegetables, meat, cheese, bread, takeaway craft beer, and coffee on sale. A trial period for the expansion is set to run for 18 months after over 550 traders applied to join the prestigious foodie line-up.

Market Manager Jordan Stone is welcoming newcomers, as well as some familiar faces.

“We are excited to welcome back old market favourites Sub Cult who, after some time away concentrating on family life, are rejoining us in their iconic van to serve up some of London’s best sandwiches, including their signature ‘submarine’ – a 12 inch sub roll packed full with delicious tender pork, marinated squid and the freshest of scallops,” Jordan said.

There’s been much excitment  for the arrival of Mike and Ollie, crowned by Time Out as one of London’s Top Five street foods.

Mike and Ollie are serving up their iconic flatbreads, filled with seasonal and locally sourced ingredients, such as Veasey and Son’s mackerel, rhubarb ketchup, and seasonal root slaw.

New to the street food scene, Ethiopian Classic Cuisine is selling spice mixes so customers can recreate Eritrean flavours at home.

Community projects on the agenda include a drop-in bike repair stop, craftspeople and makers selling their wares, and stalls piled high with antiques and curiosities for the home.

Maltby Street is continuing to donate all food surplus to the Borough-based homeless charity St Mungo’s.

Maltby Street Market is open Saturday from 10am-5pm and Sunday from 11am-4pm. Ropewalk, SE1 3PA. www.maltby.st
