The long awaited Market Halls in Fulham, Broadway is about to open and we couldn’t be more excited. Opening on 8th May 2018 from 8am-11pm, Market Hall shall offer a diverse and eclectic mix of food, highlighting the incredible local food vendors of West London all under one roof.
Although food halls are nothing new, the aim of the Market Hall is to create a permanent, unique fixture of dining hubs that work with and for the local communities. The buildings used to house the food halls were originally commercial or cultural hubs bustling with people. The idea is to not only bring them back to life but make them useful spaces for all to cater for locals, workers and families alike and connect people to the area.
The first confirmed in the line-up is Claude’s Deli. Created by Claude Compton, a neighbourhood restauranteur who is extending his nearby Claude’s Kitchen to an all-day eatery, Claude’s Deli. With simple good quality ingredients and a core value of real food the deli will offer British food with a selection of homemade bread, pastries, cheese boards, charcuterie and an abundance of seasonal fruit and vegetables. The menu will also include salad bowls, sandwiches and soups.
The second in the line-up is Yard Sale. Born out of three friends love of Pizza and beginning life in a backyard in Clapton, co-owners Nick Buckland, Dan Spinney and Johnnie Tate, these three mates now have four bustling shops across the East and North London. Their double fermented pizza bases are what makes the award-winning pizza flavour so special and when topped with only the finest ingredients from locally sourced producers this winning combination is a guaranteed hit that the masses will enjoy.
Farang’s Seb Holmes unique new Thai concept – Thima – is another much anticipated addition to the hall with it’s pared back and simple approach to Southeast Asian food that has gained Farang critical acclaim.
