I worked in Soho for 15 years, and have been back quite a bit recently. Berwick St Market has changed a lot. The old market traders are mostly gone, replaced by street food vendors. On the one hand, they offer an affordable lunch now that all the old cafes have been replaced by trendy and expensive alternatives. But on the other hand, I miss the old Italian cafes and delis, like San Marco on Lexington Street, and a host of others. I know you can't go back, but sometimes the old ways were better.

There is a wide selection of ethnic foods to choose from. I opted for paella which was delicious. i took my food a few blocks away and ate my lunch at Soho Square which was very nice. The market also has a few fruit stands.

Good that it’s still a street market, but it’s nothing very exceptional when there are so many similar street food venue in the centre of London.…

Lively afternoon market with varied food stalls. Great vibe and amazing smells, but the actual food we at from several vendors were just okay Nothing bad, but not great either. It was great for grabbing a quick bite between touring the city and fun to walk thru regardless.

Berwick street market has less goods and clothes sellers and more street food vendors..not bad if you work nearby..but somehow Soho is losing its soul.
