The area
Address
Neighborhood: Southbank
Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the reasons that Southbank is such a collectively cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly activities and venues lined up along a pedestrianized river bank between Westminster Bridge and Waterloo Bridge, visitors can always expect a casual and festive atmosphere. On top of all the fun stuff to do at Southbank is the opportunity to simply sit back and admire photo-op views of iconic landmarks like Parliament and St Paul's Cathedral, just on across the Thames.
How to get there
  • Waterloo • 4 min walk

The most awful food I have ever eaten at a Street food market
Aug 2017 • Friends
My partner and I went to 2 different stalls as we wanted different food. I had a burrito (which had sweet potato and courgettes in it?????) and my partner had vegetable biryani.
Today my stomach has been feeling very unwell and I have started questioning the hygiene level of this stand. There is a leave out 4hr rule with food (but yesterday the weather was particularly hot in London)
I noticed when he was making my burrito that there was no refrigeration of food and my vegetables were re heated from a container that was 1. Not covered and 2. Not refrigerated.
I have owned a cafe in the past and know what it takes to keep food hygiene at a good level.
The burrito was not good at all and my partners biryani dry bland and inedible!
Rupert Street food market blows the roof off the Southbank centre food market.
I suggest a check of who you are serving food to...some of us have high standards and are Londoners and tend to come back...we will not be back!

Great Variety of Food Choices
Aug 2017 • Family
Located next to the Royal Festival Hall. Open Weekly (Fri 12-8pm, Sat 11am – 8pm, Sun 12-6pm).

This little market features some of the best artisan food (from all corners of the globe) and drink producers. It is affordable food right on the Southbank.

A definite alternative to the chain restaurants around the Southbank.

Enjoy!!

Great international food

Might get a little crowded, still totally worth going - good choice, reasonable prices and great feel (surprisingly, the lack of tables and having to sit on the stairs makes it way more interesting). My Pad Thai was amazing.

Lovely Market
Jun 2017 • Friends
Always visit this market when in London! My favourites are the duck confit burger, pork sandwich and the curry shack! There is also a stall that sells jars of hot garlic pickle.

Delicious international food and drink
Jun 2017 • Friends
On the 'wrong side of the National but still busy. This is a lovely market with a mixed bag clientele consisting of friends, families and lots of tourists.
The food choice was truly international. We settled on Sri Lankan which was delicious. We sat on the steps alongside all the other 'diners' and thoroughly enjoyed our meal.
Not expensive either.

Amazing Food Options
Jun 2017 • Couples
Perfect for a sunny evening after work or an evening stroll for tourists. Vibrant with lots of amazing food and drink options. A bit light on seating but it's a street market after all so get cozy with a stranger on one of the benches or perch up on the steps nearby.

Great market - not a huge amount of choice
May 2017 • Couples
We visited on a busy bank holiday, and at the time it was celebrating Indian foods. The food we tried was awesome, although it would have been great to have a little more variety (even in Indian foods), as most stalls were very similar.

Ultimately all worth a visit though!

Vibrant !
May 2017 • Friends
What a vibrant place, full of contrasting and often unusual foods from throughout the World. A shame that it is generally only operating on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
