Market Hall Fulham will officially open its doors in May, providing the neighbourhood with a community hub dedicated to homegrown food and drink.
Joining Claude’s Deli, Yard Sale Pizza, Press Coffee and Thima by Farang are six new operators. The final set of vendors to be announced include smoked meat specialists Hot Box, Hawaiian poké pioneers Ahi Poké, fried chicken connoisseurs Butchies, Calcutta Canteen from the team behind Darjeeling Express, and new site Fanny’s Kebabs from the people behind Tommy Tucker and Claude’s Kitchen. Ice cream bar Soft Serve Society will be offering their ice creams, bubble teas and baked treats.
Market Halls’ first site in London will be housed in the Grade II-listed, former Edwardian ticket hall of Fulham Broadway station located near the current Underground entrance.
It will hold nine kitchens, a deli, coffee shop and bar, with a large communal dining area for over 200 people. Utilising the original London Underground ticket office booths, the bar will champion independent British-made beers, spirits and soft drinks.
The Market Halls team have been working closely with North Cornwall brewers Harbour to create their own house lager ‘Market Helles’ as well as having rotational beers from Cloudwater, Wild Beer Co and Siren Craft Brew. Sussex brewers Good Things will also be on tap. Completing the draught line-up will be Bermondsey-based Hawkes with their Urban Orchard Cider. Working with Kicking Horse Craft Beer Merchants, there will be a total of six British craft beers on draught available, as well as 20 bottles and cans on offer. There will also be a short cocktail list made using British craft spirits, as well as a range of wines and a selection of non-alcoholic drinks.
Market Halls is headed up by CEO Andy Lewis-Pratt, a former property investor and philanthropist. Simon Anderson, an entrepreneur and the restauranteur behind London’s Pitt Cue Co, joins him as director of restaurants and operations.
