My Day in Pictures: Market Sunday

Maltby St

In my week in pictures post I mentioned a visit to Maltby Street Market and this past Sunday I headed there again for brunch with my gal pals.

I know I said previously I wanted to keep this market under wraps because it’s nice and chilled out but it’s just so lovely I had to share it with you.  You won’t tell anyone, right? 😉  It’s the ideal spot to sample foods from around the world and a great people-pleaser allowing friends to dine together on whatever cuisine they fancy.

There are a few places to sit within the market but it was such a sunny day we perched on a wall at the market’s edge and used the opportunity to soak up a few rays before they give way to higher winds and autumnal rainclouds.  Price-wise, some stalls are more reasonable than others.  I went for a falafel and salad box which came in at £4 and was delicious though I did see an overpriced wrap going for around £8 which I think is just too much.  Maybe it’s the best wrap in the world but the price put me off wanting to find out.

If you’re as keen on coffee as I am, the stand closest to the entrance does the best lattes, mochas, piccolos and, I’m told, cold brew that you will find at the market.  If your tastebuds crave something a little more indulgent their hot chocolates, made from melted chocolate drops, are rumoured to be the best in town.

Malty Street is a stone’s throw away from Ã¼ber hip Bermondsey Street where you’ll find pricey coffee shops and restaurants, boutiques, galleries and apartments to lust after.  It’s also handy to the Shortwave Cinema if you fancy catching a film in the afternoon.  This cinema only has a small selection of films and prices vary; depending on which day you go you can expect to pay between £6 and £10 to see the film of your choice.  Weekend matinees at 2pm appear to be £1 cheaper than at 5pm or 9pm so take advantage of the post-brunch bloat and snuggle down in a soft seat with a good film.  (I should say, I haven’t been to Shortwave Cinema yet but am itching to see Everest.  I’ll let you know what I think.  If you’ve been you can let me know what to expect!)

That’s all for the moment.  I’ve a vlog on its way this weekend for anyone who fancies an escape to the country.

See you then, L x
