There's been something of a renaissance in South London over recent years and Brixton like so many blossoming cultural hotspots south of the river is deservedly being lauded as a hive for exciting arts events, cool indie cafés such as Federation Coffee and for its famous food market. Attracting a young crowd comprised of trendy professional types and foodies, you'll love the enriching indulgence that lies within Brixton Village.
Brixton Market is often a hive of activity with so much going on.
If it's fresh produce you're after head down to the Farmers Market for a taste of Britain; or you can find something mouth-wateringly tasty at Brixton's Honest Burger, which famous foodie Jay Raynor touted as one of the best affordable burgers in London (which I wholeheartedly agree with). However a highlight has to be Street Food Corner offering a menagerie of scents and flavours, with fresh and exciting foods from all over the world pitching up and satisfying the crowds.
The Street Food Corner and Farmers Market's are hugely popular in Brixton Village.
In the evenings you'll love to tear some bread and share Tapas with Seven At Brixton a lively restaurant that even has its own exhibition space upstairs, which is a showcase for local art if you're after some culture. There's Pakistani cuisine at the Cornercopia or a taste of Thailand at KaoSarn (both stunning), but for a more traditional dining experience Bellantoni's serves amazing Italian dishes with a great atmosphere to match. There's plenty of fun to be had trying new dishes and soaking up the buzzing atmosphere, which makes Brixton Village an amazing foodie experience in London. But don't just take our word for it, head down and enjoy this South London gem for yourself.
