Street food is so hot right now that catering equipment specialists feel like they are making accessories for campervans and major multiples scour the kerbside for the next big food trend.
London is the epicentre of the trend, and its newest and biggest player, KERB Camden Market, will officially open to the public on Friday 12 August.
Open 364 days a year, 35 of the capital’s best-known and most innovative traders will offer locals, Londoners and visitors a unique eating and drinking experience in this iconic canal-side location.

Camden is the perfect place for us to grow our mission and engage Londoners with the best and most diverse food offering out there. We are very excited to be working with the Camden Market team to help establish a new era for this historical market.” Petra Barran, founder at KERB.
