Borough introduces informal dining area

London’s Borough Market has launched a food-court-style communal dining area, featuring more than 20 food traders.

Borough Market Kitchen opened on Monday 18th November at the popular public market near London Bridge station.

The latest initiative will see traders such as Arabica, Brindisa, La Tua Pasta and Juma Kitchen operate from stands and stalls around long tables where consumers can eat the dishes they buy. 

Spanish, Jamaican and Iraqi cuisines will be on offer among many other options. 

Borough Market Kitchen is constructed from recycled materials, and will be entirely free of single use plastics. It will be open from 10am to 5pm from Monday to Saturday, with an extra hour until 6pm on Fridays. 

After hours, the area will revert to a hub for wholesale operations. 

The opening has allowed a reorganisation across the market. Three Crown Square and the entire Green Market area are now dominated by producers and produce sellers, while Rochester Walk continues to offer a blend of ingredients and prepared foods.
