Fulham Market Hall

September 11, 2018

Our Catering and Leisure team recently had the fantastic opportunity to visit the new Market Hall in Fulham Broadway. It is the first location for Market Halls in London, but the company is set to open two new destinations in Victoria and the West End – and we can certainly see why they are expanding!

Street food is still an emerging trend in the UK but this is something we have witnessed popping up more frequently across Europe – with the Time Out Market in Lisbon famous for being the catalyst for the development of market halls. We got to experience Copenhagen’s Street Food first hand on the recent Revo Study tour of the Nordics – and since then we have been completely sold on the concept.

We think we are going to see more of this across the UK, with food halls becoming a favourite among consumers who are eating out more than ever and want authentic dishes to satisfy increasingly sophisticated palettes.

Market Hall Fulham is housed in the renovated Edwardian Underground station in Fulham Broadway, which has retained the former ticket hall from the original 1880 station, giving it a quirky feel and bringing the building back to its history. It boats nine kitchens, a coffee shop, a deli, a fully stocked bar and over 200 communal dining seats.

It is rare you go to a place and see such a mix of people. On our visit we saw a great mix of ages of people – from families to work colleagues, and young people socialising and the Market Halls is even dog-friendly – so we saw some furry friends. The reason it attracts so many people is because this new offer has a fun and unique atmosphere, which is mainly due to layout, which creates a buzz, but also because of the variety, allowing people to interact through the different offers available. It is also open 7 days a week and serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks, with a wide selection that will suit everyone’s tastes, therefore suiting a cross-demographic of people.

In a nutshell, food halls are becoming quite the trend and are popping up more and more across the UK. We are particularly enjoying this way of dining as it gives a chance to try food from a few different places and introduces the possibility of a mini food crawl. Lucky Fulham…we can’t wait to have one in the West End!
