Feasts and flavours of the Southbank Food Festival, London

With more than 40 small, independent producers the Southbank food festival offers a wide variety of street food and produce bringing fresh food into an exciting part of London, itself dominated by the concrete of the Southbank Centre, the Royal Festival Hall and other arts buildings that sit between the River Thames and Waterloo railway station.

From charcuterie, cheeses to fresh pasta, paella, curry and of course craft beers there is plenty to buy and take home or eat as you stroll by the river. The market is open each Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Click here to find out more.

In the meantime, here is a short film giving you a flavour of whatโ€™s on offer at the market, a great place to visit for an hour or two even if the sky is little overcast.
