Tonight’s opening of the Model Market on Lewisham High Street was a complete smash! Tonnes of people, massive queues, top tunes and the food… oh the food!

Lewisham has been thirsting for a great night out and in Street Feast’s Model Market it has finally found one!
Lewisham is famous for it’s historic street market but if we’re honest, Lewisham High Street has little to offer beyond 6 o’clock- it’s night time economy offer is paltry. Young Lewisham-ites either head to central London for nights out or to the far busier and vibrant town centres- Blackheath, Forest Hill, Brockley…

So well done to Street Feast and to it’s artisan food traders- genuinely some of the best in London- for taking the risk and investing in Lewisham.

DETAILS: The night market is open 6pm till 1am each Friday and Saturday from now until the end of September.

The first few weeks are free entry. Entrance on Molesworth Street (near the Pyramid roundabout).

Read some of the best tweets from the opening night!
