Street food shop

A shop aiming to showcase the best new street food traders and food start-ups has launched in Covent Garden. Startisans is run by the team behind Shepherds Markets, which runs more than 20 regular food markets across London. It is open from 8am – 3pm every weekday, and hosts 15 traders at any one time, with the focus on newcomers. Those currently residing include Simply Handmade Chocolates, macarons from Comptoir Gourmand, raw honey from Bee Happier, and Deeney’s who are serving haggis toasties. Down the line, the plan is to extend opening hours and introduce evening wine tastings.
