Greenwich Market is a hive of activity that can be found within the Royal Borough of Greenwich, if you are heading through the town when you turn off from the side road to get to the market you are immediately hit by the volume of people trying to get in. We went at Sunday lunch time it was jam packed, people everywhere spewing onto the street, the aromas from all the different stools filling the air. You have Brazilian, Mexican, Thai, Chinese, American, Vegan (yes I know thats not a country), Indian and many more cuisines. It’s not the cheapest of markets but it has never been advertised that way either. Greenwich itself is a pretty pricey area and the popularity of the market has meant there is no need to cut prices. I can assure you though it is worth every penny!
The market has been in its current location since 1831 and is steeped in history, if you are that way inclined it is worth googling Greenwich Market to find out all about it, for me I am more interested in my belly unfortunately so can’t wait to tuck into some of the delights the market has to offer me. I pick the Pad Thai from a stall called Thai Kitchen and get stuck in, the taste is delicious anf the portion generous, next I head over to the fresh juice stall to find something to wash it down, here I am greeted by a wide choice of fresh fruits that they turn into juice on site.
If you’re in Greenwich and you want to check out the market:
