This is now our regular Saturday treat! - Edit

We love this market, we've been going regularly since it was a monthly affair, and now everything Saturday begins with a - slightly guilty - acknowledgment that this will probably be the source of our lunch.

It's never let me down, the stalls change quite often - though there are a handful of regulars such as BigV, Young Vegans and Temple Of Seitan, but there's usually some exciting new treats to be had as well.

On this visit we had the Tofish burger by Itis Vegan and the weekend special pie from Young Vegans, as well as a couple of cakes from Vegan Delice. What a perfect combo that was!

It's also the place where we first got a taste of vegan Baileys, which immediately made its way onto our Christmas list!

Sometimes the range isn't super extensive, and if it's a nice day it can get very busy, but it's a market, it's changeable, that's part of the appeal and I hope it long remains a fixture of our Saturday schedule.

Pros: Good regular stalls, Nice variety of stalls, Friendly atmosphere

Okay, not fantastic - Edit

Considering this is an all-vegan market I thought it would be a bit better - but there were not a huge amount of options - you're kind of better off going to Camden market and ignoring the omni vendors. In fairness I still think this place is new and finding it's feet.

I got the ramen (super good, and gf) and a Young Vegans pie. Very very good. The V Burger line was insane but people seemed to like it.

The desert stands were nice and the people working there super friendly. Lots of free samples. The Spanish lady selling cookies was a highlight for me - and the middle eastern sweets too. The cashew cheese stall was awesome.

Pros: Certain vendors, Free samples, Lots of (outdoor) seating

Cons: Limited stalls currently, Short opening hours

amazing food!! - Edit

Love this place, make sure u don’t visit with a full tummy! They have everything! Cakes, donuts, fried chicken, mac n cheese plus more. Spent most of the day in a food coma. It’s so nice not having to check if things are vegan.

fabulous! - Edit

I'm so happy this is in Hackney. I've been twice now - an excellent line up of london's best vegan vendors both times and a really vibrant atmosphere. It's on the third Saturday of every month; bring cash.
