There isn't really any bad choices at Strutton Ground - it's changed beyond belief following the street food revolution and is now a bit of a foodie heaven.
There's the usual shops such as an Eat and the obligatory supermarket, but there is also a decent hardware shop just around the corner and a quality Oxfam book shop.
Now for the food - there's stands and shops in abundance. My favourites include the Thai shop and the burrito stall but I also quite like the French stand with its daily changing menu. I also hear that the coffee stall serves a decent cup, and there's yet more food available from the Indian stand (you must try the mixed kebab - so tasty) as well as a falafel place and a Moroccan stall. So much choice!!
A small street market in Westminster primarily serving the local office workers trade but also very popular with local residents, of which I am one.
Excellent value for money! There are 2 fruit and veg stalls (great characters working on these stalls), a florist stall, a hardware/electricals stall, the regular guy who sells books, children's books and diaries, a regular well dressed lady who sells office and casual wear (she wears what she sells and she looks good) at down to earth prices, a young couple who run a hats, scarves and accessories stall etc etc. Some stalls are long term features and sometimes there are guest ones.
Since last year or so there is a hot food stall called Madame Gaultier (regular-ish) selling continental style hot dishes for lunch. A pasta dish or potato gratin dish here or there. I go there for my fix of celeri remoulade and grated carrots salad. Towards the end of last year a Jamaican couple have started selling West Indian dishes like Jerk Chicken and rice and peas which is great.
Well worth visiting if you are in the area. The whole street is cobbled (i.e. not tarmac covered) and has character.
Fantastic little lunch market with huge variety in lunch options and in price ranges. Three shops on the same side of the street all sell baguette sandwiches with a range of fillings for about £2 or £3 max. A fish and chip shop and pizza place also add some variety on that side of the street (the cheaper side) and a new, upscale place on the other side sells beautiful quiches, salads, sandwiches, and desserts! In the middle of this pedestrian only street market, vendors cook up big vats of delicious-smelling food, although they are a bit more expensive. This is a great place for everyone to find tasty and filling lunches, either on a budget or those willing to spend a bit more!. Being just off Victoria Street, this market is crowded at lunchtime so be prepared for long queues between 1 and 2pm.
