Leadenhall Market adds more food options to its portfolio

The City of London’s Leadenhall Market has unveiled three new food & drink outlets opening this month, introducing flavours from Argentina, Lebanon and Taiwan.

First to have open its doors is Argentinian Grill, serving up various cuts of flame cooked meats alongside popular South American sides including Provenzal fries, sweet potato and empanadas. The restaurant is open on Mondays-Saturdays from 11am-11pm and Sundays from 11am-6pm.

From mid-June, Yi Fang will be joining the market with a bubble tea store serving nostalgic flavours of early-Taiwanese hospitality. The store will be open on Mondays-Fridays, 12pm-8pm and Saturday-Sunday, 11am-6pm. 

Also arriving at the market in mid-June is Lebanese favourites Baba Ghanoush, offering falafels and traditional Lebanese cuisines, serving from Monday-Friday, 9am-6pm.

A familiar face will also return to the market in June, as Hoxton Street Monster Supplies reopens its store, open Tuesdays-Fridays from 11am-5pm.

Greg Stalcup, Partner at Levy Real Estate, which manages the lettings for Leadenhall Market, said: “We’re really looking forward to welcoming these exciting new eateries to one of London’s oldest market places. Leadenhall Market continues to evolve, now not only being a place to eat, drink and shop but somewhere for people to enjoy a variety of exciting pop-up stores and events, bringing old and new faces to this beautiful destination in the heart of the City. These three new openings mark the start of a busy year ahead for the market, as we prepare to introduce more outlets later in the summer. These will complement the eclectic range of existing tenants – from family-owned florists to cheesemongers and high-end jewellers, French and Italian restaurants and the award winning historic Lamb Tavern, there’s something for everyone at this historic gem.”

Located in the centre of the City of London’s financial district, Leadenhall Market marked its 700th anniversary in 2021. Originally a meat, poultry and game market, it is now home to a collection of boutique retailers, restaurants, cafes, wine bars and an award-winning pub, The Lamb Tavern.   

The site is owned by the City of London Corporation, who were gifted it in 1411 by the former Lord Mayor Richard ‘Dick’ Whittington. Surviving changes in use, rebuilding and even the Great Fire, its current beautiful Victorian architecture with soaring archways, spectacular painted roof and cobbled streets was designed by Sir Horace Jones (who also designed Smithfield Market and Tower Bridge) and dates back to 1881.
