One thing I love about London is the varieties of markets on offer, from Broadway Market to Borough, Portabello to Columbia Road, there is a market for everything and everyone.
Maltby Street market (Bermondsey) is a small, less famous (but certainly not less-good!) market primarily for food . At weekends you can find a variety of food stalls selling all manner of delicacies ranging from waffles to speciality olive oil. In addition to the market there are some permanent shops/bars/eateries under the railway arches, including Aloha which sells vintage furniture and homeware.
However, our main target in Maltby Street was Tozino, a Spanish Tapas bar that transports you to Spain the moment you enter the venue. This was a second visit to Tozino, and hopefully not the last!
From the ceiling are hung many legs of Jamón (possibly my favourite Spanish export). As well as this they have a selection of Spanish wines and cervezas on offer, which beautifully compliment the jamón and tapas on offer.
We ordered some beer and bread and tomato (a very popular snack in Spain) whilst we decided what to pick from the menu (a tricky decision when everything sounds fantastic!). We settled on Migas con Chorizo and a chorizo and chickpea stew.
If you find yourself in Bermondsey a quick stop at Maltby Street market will not disappoint.
