I am really happy to report that I have had the great pleasure of talking to the great team at Eat St, who are behind the new King’s Boulevard street food micro-market (amongst other fabulous ventures you may have seen them at).

Happily I’ll be sharing content from the blog with their website, with this post the first to feature on both.

It was fantastic to talk to Petra, co-founder and, I have to say, all round superwoman, who is part of the team behind this excellent cooperative of high quality street food traders.

Since my last post in early October, I have visited the site a number of times and it has already developed a lively and magnetic atmosphere, drawing people in from surrounding areas throughout the day, which seems incredible given the short space of time it has been there. The trial period is over but due to the overwhelming success of the first month, the site is now trading three days a week: Wednesday to Friday, 10am – 4pm.

With what Eat St are calling a “smorgasbord” of street food traders rotating every day, with special guests popping up every now and again, there will always be something to whet your appetite: whatever time of day, whatever the weather.

And whilst you’re up there, I would highly recommend a look around the new Central St Martins building: an amazing site from both inside and out. Oh to be an art student – they may be lamenting the move from Soho but you couldn’t ask for a more fantastic and inspiring piece of architecture to spend 4 years learning your craft in.
