20 With the Christmas Market’s newest addition, the Urban Food Fest, joining us in Guildhall yard, we take a look at London’s historical love affair with the humble street food vendor. Roman London Victorian London In London today most of our oysters With London’s population surging to are sold courtesy of TFL, but rewind to over 3 million demands for street food Roman Britain and these now luxury morsels are thought to be the fuel that grew amongst the working classes fed London. Abundant at the time in who once again had little or no access British waters, Roman excavations of the Square Mile nearly always to their own kitchen. Popular dishes include oyster shells! included hot eels, pea soup, pickled whelks, sheep’s trotters, fried fish and perhaps slightly more appetising plum dough! It is believed there were over 6,000 vendors working in the City during that time. Medieval London Georgian London Without access to kitchens, street The most famous street food vendor food was the only hot food available of the time was Drury Lane’s the to London’s lower classes.

London in particular saw the rise of ‘haute cuisine’ and paying lots of money for minuscule plates of food was the done thing.Most street food of the time consisted of the faithful kebab van, the perfect end to a great night out.20th century London 2015 LondonFollowing World War II, a new surge As much as us Londoners love toin population arrived as a result of moan about being in a rush, weimmigration and streets were filled secretly love the frenetic energy thiswith new vendors offering food from city exudes and who has time for a sitfurther afield.
