London's Street Food Markets

Borough Market is probably London's most famous food market, but there are plenty of other sites that are worth seeking out. Borough Market  has been challenged by its close neighbour, Maltby Street Market, which runs alongside railway arches. Arrive hungry and fill up on messy burgers from African Volcano, cheese toasties from The Cheese TRuck and salted caramel treats from Bad Brownie, which, in their words, "are so good they're bad."

Berwick Street Market in Soho is one of the city's oldest markets, dating bacl to 1778. Highlights include curry and rice at Afghan Delights, fluffy pitta filled with souvlaki(skewered meat) at Greek2Go and Carribean cuisine at Lime Hut.

While you are there, visit Soho Vegan Market, which opened in spring. The Saturday market on Rupert Street has stalls including Zoe's Ghana Kitchen, Little Leaf Pizza and Planty Hugs, with gluten-free, raw cakes.

Canopy Market is held on weekends by the canal behind King's Cross. While it sells work by artists and has music on Friday evenings, it's Korean rice or arancini balls will grab your attention. Dont miss Growlers, which serves pregos (a Portuguese sandwich). Co-founder Charley Friedman says: "This isn't first-date food! When you eat a prego, you'll get steak juice on your chin, butter on your lips and breadcrumbs down your top."

KERB stalls vary between sites, but look out for paella from Jamon. Jamon and ginger beer-buttered chicken nuggets from Only Jerkin'.

So go on - take a bite out of the capital's street food markets.
