With its in-your-face attitude and anti-establishment identity, Brixton is one of London’s most exciting food scenes. In the street around its stations, a vibrant, innovative and creative food culture has grown that is a heady mix of traditional market traders, restaurants, food producers, design stores, cash and carry supermarkets and Caribbean food markets.
This burgeoning food scene is the result of a Space Makers urban generation project initiative “Empty Space Project” five years ago with London & Associated Properties Plc and Lambeth Council. Since then, the market has grown attracting newcomers as well as retaining its old residents. It is this mix of peoples and food traditions that makes Brixton so interesting. On a Saturday morning, you’ll mix with local shoppers bartering over prices with a new generation of locals enjoying breakfast.
