Street Feast ARE coming to Woolwich Indoor Market in March 2018

Remember a year ago when Greenwich Council revealed in a council report that the popular food market Street Feast were coming to Woolwich? It then appeared the council had jumped the gun and Street Feast revealed they wouldn’t after all.

Well, jump forward a year and now it’s confirmed that they are to open on site. Great news for Woolwich.

By the way, that tweet was posted before Greenwich Council confirmed the news.

According to Greenwich Council, they’ll be “eight great street food traders, three specialist bars and two mezzanine levels featuring a ‘Pool Deck’ and an event/activity space. The central market area will have seating for up to 300 people, and when the market is closed, the space will be available for community events such as a pop-up cinema, sports screenings and kids clubs”.

Street Feast weren’t the only bidder in a recent contest to run the site. Commiserations to losing bidder Roi who has operated the successful Tooting Market and spent much time and effort into opening the Woolwich site.

The one year delay from the botched announcement last December has meant the site laying empty for many months when it could have had occupants and brought life to the area.

But at least something is now confirmed and Woolwich’s food and drink options will further increase early next year.

Street Feast will operate for two years before the site is demolished as part of the 740-home Spray Street development.

  • I’ve always loved the public market, from the outside, not so much the inside. This really is a great addition to Woolwich.

  • Went last night, it’s fantastic. Internally, the roof structure is amazing. Does anyone know when this was built?
