If you are up for some street food you will be able to grab a bite to eat on the mean streets of Woolwich.

Starting this spring, Street Feast is coming to the Plumstead Road Covered Market to transform the derelict site into a place to eat.

The Spray Street Quarter has proposed redevelopment plans in the works, but until that goes ahead it would have been left unused.

That is why the Street Feast market is stepping in, with a range of independent traders selling food from across the world, as well as specialist bars with events and music.

Street Feast were chosen by Greenwich Council after their work running similar venues in Shoreditch, Canada Water and Giant Robot in Canary Wharf.

Greenwich Council deputy leader Councillor Danny Thorpe said: “I'm delighted we've managed to bring Street Feast to Woolwich. They have a fantastic reputation and will provide a vibrant and exciting destination for families and people of all ages.

“Whilst plans for the Spray Street Quarter continue to be developed, this will be a great space for everyone to enjoy in the town centre.”

Street Feast is scheduled to open in early spring 2018 on the site and the central market area will have seating for up to 300 people.

Matthew Sanders, from Street Feast, said: “We’re really excited about bringing Street Feast to Woolwich. As well as breathing life back into the market, Street Feast will support at least 20 small, independent businesses and over 50 jobs for local young people.

“Street Feast already supports a network of small businesses at the core of the company, bringing world-class food to the markets and helping to transform lives and communities through the power of street food.

“The council has an impressive plan for Woolwich town centre, and we’re looking forward to working with councillors, residents and other local businesses on what this space can do for the local area.”
