The seasonal Model Market, focal point of Lewisham street food, has opened for another summer of trading on Lewisham High Street.
A great opportunity for south-east London foodies, the market offers a varied selection of food and drink which, while indulgent, isn’t too “pricey”. It will be open every weekend from 5pm until 1am.
The spacious venue next to Lewisham shopping centre includes small bars with various types of alcohol and is accommodating and comfortable.
Even the cold weather of this spring has not been a problem, as the market is equipped with heaters around the seating area.
The food and drink options are numerous: from the freshly opened but promising new food stalls, like ‘What The Fattoush‘, to everyone’s favourite regulars like ‘Mama’s Jerk’ and ‘Sodo Pizza’, coming back to make the Lewisham foodies happier.
Despite already being open in Deptford and Canary Wharf, ‘What The Fattoush’ is part of the Model Market for the very first time and the owners found the preparations very exciting.
The freshly opened joint offers “traditional Palestinian food turned vegan junk food” where for just £10 you can get a delicious vegan burger and fries combo.
The two best friends behind it, Jess Howe and Meg Maule, got the idea while travelling and helping out in multiple refugee camps across Serbia, Palestine and Greece, among other places.
“We have been open at this location for exactly 20 minutes,” said Jess, one of the creators and co-owners of What The Fattoush, “but today’s preparations have been incredibly exciting and it is already going well”.
