Bermondsey Night market The StockMKT is back with a two night special on the final Thursday and Friday of June. Inspired by the night markets of the Far East, it's a mix of eating and shopping, with a very cool vibe.
"So what ‘s new at the June StockMKT double header?
A different programme each night but with some common themes:
Healthy stuff: More delicious street eats from summer-friendly and lighter Eastern-inspired traders Bangwok, Bibimbap and Pom Pom Takoyaki representing Thailand, Korea & Japan. We’ve also got Vegan Peasant doing veggie gourmet to tempt even the staunchest carnivore.
Bad (meaning good) stuff: And, if the idea of ‘healthy’ frightens you, don’t panic we’ll have some of the dirtiest burgers (from Mother Flipper), pulled pork (from African Volcano), and the most fantastic array of sausages products known to humankind.
Liquid stuff: What’s the hottest (cold) drink in London this summer? That’s right Sherry. You didn’t know? Well you do now. So we’ve got Stylist wine writer / FT contributor and all round wine popularising good egg Jane Parkinson doing 21st century Sherry tasting.
Classy stuff: Last time Kamm and Sons’ ginseng cocktails were a smash and while they return, this time we also have London’s coolest gin makers and shakers, Sparrow London Dry Gin bringing their 50s inspired set to the Square.
Sweet stuff: Proper ice cream, sherbets and sorbets from Sorbitium, Bea of Bloomsbury debuting her Lolly Cart, and old-fashioned milkshakes from Retro Shakes. And cakes a-plenty from the scrumptious Sweet Tooth Factory, Crumbs and Doilies and Chai Cupcakes!
Take home stuff: We have a jewellery cluster, to-die-for Dutch bikes and hand made home accessories, loads of upcycled vintage wear from new stallholders supporting Mary Portas’ ‘Lover Your Local Market’ concept.
Ear stuff: Albert Ball’s Flying Aces are back but we also have some quirky new friends on the bill, throwing their musical magic into the mix!"
