Moving to St. Mary's School on Masbro Road with further expansion planned
Wingnut Wines will be one of the stalls at the new location
On Saturday 6 March, Brook Green Market & Kitchen is moving to St Mary’s Primary School, Masbro Road.
The organises say that, as this is a bigger site than the current location at Addison Primary School, they will bringing all the same produce and street food traders that have been present over the past six years, but with much more space to grow. The new location is just two streets away at and will be launching with an line-up of new street food and produce vendors before expanding to include lifestyle, arts and homeware sections.
There are nine new faces joining the market on day one. For street food, there will be the West London debut of Pleasant Lady, the jian bing specialists who sell Chinese pancakes filled with Iberico jamon, duck and tofu alongside their older sister, the Soho dim sum legends Bun House and their Insta-famous custard bao.
The new site will also be home to Smallfry, the latest venture from Jolene and Quo Vadis chef Matthew Dykes whose tempura dayboat fish and seasonal veggies come topped with the likes of crispy seaweed, togarashi and gochujang aioli; as well as Lovely Bunch of Coconuts with their charcoal-fired Mauritian BBQ biriyani and grilled-to-order rotis.
On the produce side of things there will be handmade seasonal pies and pickles from former St John, Rochelle Canteen and Albertine chefs at Copper Rattle; natural wines from the experts at Wingnut Wines; Japanese interpretations of traditional French patisserie from Kichiya Pastries; premium Spanish imports from Finer Things Deli; and game-changing croissant buns from Buns From Home.
The new line up is in addition to the dozens of traders that have made Brook Green Market a foodie destination over the past six years. Whether it’s organic veg from Wild Country Organics, dayboat fish that arrives at The Fish Stall still stiff from rigor mortis, or biodynamic fruits and fungi from Brambletye Farm, shoppers at Brook Green have always been able to find a wide range of products.
On top of the additional space for traders, the new playground is dotted with picnic areas, covered benches, a secret garden and cosy nooks and crannies to spread out into with a cocktail, a cold pint or a bottle of natural wine. The organisers say that the site feels more akin to a festival ground than a primary school.
There will also be an indoor section to the market that will see homeware, fashion, art, ceramics and other lifestyle items come to Brook Green as soon as current restrictions on non-essential goods lift. This expansion to both the size and scope of the market aims to make the operation into an all-day shopping, eating and drinking hub that local residents can use as a social space, listen to live music and engage with a series of events and workshops that will be available to all customers.
