London is already one of the most exciting cities in the world with its signature double decker busses, telephone booths, and royal family drama, but what’s even better is its incredible range of vegan options!

In this guide, we’ll dive into London’s best street food – vegan edition!

Let’s dive in!

Where to Find London’s Best Vegan Street Food

London is heaven for vegans with so many incredible vegan and vegan-friendly restaurants that you’ll never go hungry. That being said, sometimes when you’re on the move, London’s best street food is the only thing that will do!

Some of the best markets at which to find vegan street food in London include:

Greenwich Market: Greenwich Market is a bit far out of central London but is easily accessible by London’s public transportation. Greenwich is home to many amazing London photo sites, like the Tulip Staircase in the Queen’s House along with their large indoor market where you’ll find a few different vegan street food options, in addition to plenty of shopping opportunities. Be sure to check out Goddards at Greenwich, a famous pie and mash shop with a vegan pie and mash option.

Broadway Market. Broadway Market (where I worked selling vegan cheese), is another fantastic place to discover local vendors selling both food, veggies, drinks, and different wares. I recommend heading there towards the end of the day to get some last-minute deals on bread and perishables that won’t last (Crosstown Donuts always has some end-of-market deals).

Victoria Park Market. This little market is located in the beautiful Victoria Park, a fantastic London garden, and although there aren’t a ton of vendors, it’s a fantastic way to spend a morning. Grab some veggies for the week and then head to one of the many vegan street food stands to grab lunch. Sit in the park and enjoy!

Borough Market. Tourist or local, you’ve almost definitely heard of Borough Market. This famous indoor market has hundreds of vendors, many of which offer amazing vegan options. Most stands are permanent, but you’ll occasionally find some rotating stands or even a vegan feature section on occasion.

Netil Market. Netil Market is just around the corner from Broadway Market and while it’s very tiny, it is a great little gem where you’ll find the incredible Get Dappa vegan icecream.

Old Spitalfields Market. Old Spitalfields Market is another amazing market with stalls absolutely full of vegan options (including some amazing Ethiopian dishes) as well as plenty of sit-down restaurants. The indoor market is well-loved by locals and is busy at lunch and on weekends, so head there in the early afternoon to have your pick of lunch spots!

Vegan Nights London. Vegan Nights London is THE vegan event to get your fill of the best street food in London, all vegan of course! Typically, Vegan Nights London happens each month throughout the summer in an outdoor venue (with a small indoor bar space). It really is a fantastic event, and worth the small ticket price. Be sure to keep an eye on their Instagram for a chance to win free entry!

Jake’s Vegan Steaks

Location: Varies, Typically Broadway Market
Must-Try: Standard Philly Cheezesteak
Completely Vegan? Yes

Cheesy, meaty, and completely vegan – what’s better than that? Jake’s Vegan Steaks is a fantastic vegan food stand, frequently found at Broadway Market. The self-proclaimed “First Vegan Philly Cheezesteak” company in the UK is well worth a try, and as they branch out into other “meats” and dishes, Jake’s Vegan Stakes should be on your radar!

Arabica Bar and Kitchen

Location: Borough Market
Must-Try: Vegan Falafel Wrap
Completely Vegan? No

This delicious Middle Eastern restaurant has a fantastic vegan offering in their Borough Market food stand, although I would not recommend sitting down because their tapas are pricy and not very vegan friendly (as of 2018). However, you can find vegan Turkish delight and the most amazing falafel wrap at the stands just outside their restaurant.

Brazilian Churros

This one is for my fellow sweet toothers! A fabulous Greenwich Market find is vegan Brazilian churros. These tasty donuts can be rolled in sugar or cinnamon and sugar (which I recommend) and stuffed with vegan chocolate sauce. They’re absolutely delicious and not at all too greasy. Though I’ve never been to Brazil, I’m keen to go now simply for the churros!

Panzerotto Blues is an Italian food stand that can be found at Greenwich Market. They serve the panzerotto, which is not a calzone. They are quoted as being “10 inch sourdough pizza pockets”. Though not exclusively vegan, they do have a vegan option with tomato, aubergine, spinach, capers, black olives, mushrooms, and black pepper. Fried and filled with tasty vegetables, what’s not to like!?

Find them at Hackney Downs Vegan Market and on Deliveroo! Their food is absolutely incredible and I can not give it enough praise. A classic British meal that even the carnivores of your group will love.

Get Dappa

Location: Check here
Must-Try: Anything with popcorn or a special
Completely Vegan? Yes

Get Dappa is one of the best vegan ice creams that London has to offer. At about £5 per cone, it’s not cheap but really is worth the splurge every now and again, especially in one of their very Instagrammable charcoal cones. While Get Dappa doesn’t have its own shop, you can generally find them at Netil Market and at various restaurants around London, including What the Pitta, one of my all-time favorite vegan restaurants in London.


Location: Varies
Must-Try: Wings
Completely Vegan: yes

“Vegan junk food gods” Biff’s is primarily delivery only and found all over the UK, but they do still pop their heads up occasionally around London. Their wings are absolutely incredible and they truly bring a new level to junk food for vegans.
