We visited Tottenham Green Market on Sunday and thoroughly enjoyed it. Rachel from The Vurger Co (veggie and vegan burgers) contacted me to sample their food. I wasn’t aware of this market so decided to pop along and investigate. It wasn’t large, there were just over fifteen stalls there, mainly food. But I must say that it was the friendliest market I’ve ever been to. The traders were really happy and there was a great atmosphere. If you’re looking for street food stalls in London, places to eat in Tottenham or things to do in London at the Weekend then visit the Tottenham Green Market.
Tottenham Green Market Street Food
If you’re hungry and in the vicinity, then you’ll enjoy the street food available. My friend and I tried the vegetarian and vegan burgers from The Vurger Co which were fantastic. This venture was set up by couple Rachel and Neil who for their own health reasons needed to explore a natural diet. This is how they came up with their idea for using 100% plant based ingredients in their patties which are gluten, dairy and soy free. Being a vegetarian and a lover of burgers I was interested to try these and I wasn’t disappointed.

We sampled the Quin-Wah which featured quinoa with carrot, chickpeas, onion and garlic for the patty which was topped off with slaw. We also munched on the BBQ Nut made from black beans, brown rice, walnuts and onion with lettuce, tomato and smashed avocado on top. Both were totally delicious and served in a brioche bun. We tried a Savse raw super smoothie to wash it down which was very healthy. The Vurger Co are doing a pop up on Saturday 15 October 1pm-11pm at The Pillbox Kitchen, 115 Coventry Road, London E2 6GG which is near Bethnal Green so check them out if you can.

Meanwhile, my friend Alan was chowing down on a Thai red chicken curry with jasmin rice from Tangys who also serve a vegetarian option. Alternatively, you can try their crispy rolls of slow roasted duck, satay chicken, shredded Thai pork or tofu and chili which are accompanied with a relevant dipping sauce.

Other street food stalls included the Wrap Game with a selection of filings in a wrap such as jerk chicken or Mexican spiced chicken. They also offered tacos and salad boxes. Stokey Bears, the burger joint from Stoke Newington, were cooking up a selection of burgers. The Faytrade stall was serving up Antiguan chicken, fish and patties. There are a few tables and a bench you can sit down on to eat your food. Don’t forget to treat yourself to a Cravings Coffee to perk you up.
