Eating Out This month's must try

Must Try for October: Camden Market

Sign advertising Camden Market

Whilst we don’t like to have favourites, we’ve grown to have a very soft spot for this vegan-paradise in North London. Camden Market has been open since 1974, and although the area might not be everyone’s cup of coffee, the Market is a must-visit for vegans in London.

Sign saying 'Oh my God it's all vegan?!'

OK, slight exaggeration. It’s not all vegan, but there’s certainly enough choice that you simply have to return to try everything.

Vegan pancakes at Camden Market

OSU Coconuts flip freshly made vegan pancakes Mon-Sun, serving a menu that includes apple crumble, berry mad and cocoa power, as well as a classic plate of pancakes. They’ve also just launched a savoury menu for those without a sweet tooth.

Find OSU Coconuts at Camden Market, Mon-Sun, 11.30am-6.30pm.

VBurger with sweet potato fries and vegan mayonnaise

VBurger is top of our list every time we’re in the Market; their menu is 100% vegan and includes seitan schnitzel, vegan cheeze and coleslaw, as well as specials like a bbq seitan burger. Don’t miss those those sweet potato fries and mayo!

Find VBurger at Camden Market, Mon-Sun, 11am-7pm (11am-21pm Fri-Sat).

Club Mexicana sell vegan tacos and other vegan Mexican food

Stop off at Club Mexicana for a real treat: fish tacos, cheese fingers, mac n cheese, hot sauce and sour cream.

Find Club Mexicana at Camden Market, Mon-Sun, 12-5pm.

Sign for Crosstown donuts

We know you’re not meant to have your pudding before your dinner, but these donuts have to be the first stop on the tour – if for anything to make sure they don’t sell out! Crosstown Doughnuts have two flavours, and they change every week. If you find they have sold out, don’t panic – they have nine more shops in London.

Packaging for Crossdown donuts

Two vegan donuts, one strawberry and one chocolate

Find Crosstown Doughnuts at Camden Market, Mon-Sun, 10am-6pm.

Vegan cookie dough stand

Smile Cookies have brought real cookie dough – with all the trimmings – to Camden. One of the first in the UK, vegan and gluten-free cookie dough can be piled high with fruit and sprinkles, depending on what mood you’re in.

Make sure you save room for cake, and these thick slices of cake are a must-stop destination. We picked up salted caramel and carrot cake.

More sweet stuff, this time at the Cereal Killers cafe. Their retro menu features a decent amount of vegan options, including toppings, milk and more. It’s not cheap, but it is fun.

Find Cereal Killers cafe at Camden Market, Mon-Sun, 9.30am-7pm.

If you venture outside of the Market, you’ll find Mildreds and Biff’s Jack Shack – both well worth a visit, too!

Food aside, let yourself get lost through the cloudy incense-filled corridors of the market, and take in the rows of stalls and traders. Enjoy a cocktail or freshly-made lemonade by the Lock, explore the jewellery stands, visit the Amy Winehouse statue and stick around in the evening for live music.
