Characterful but shabby Shepherd’s Bush Market has been around for over a century, and clearly its organisers feel that it’s high time for a refresh.
Little Feast will launch on Thursday 2 July in a space at the Goldhawk Road end of Shepherd’s Bush Market which is not usually open to the public, running there from Thursdays to Sunday.
It’s a sister project to the Feast food festivals which have run in Brick Lane and Tobacco Dock, and will be home to eight street food stalls in wooden huts, including Green Goat serving grilled fish, Got Seoul offering Korean bbq, Venulezean arepas from Guasaca and a brand new stall called Poptata selling fries.
An old fish shop under railway arches nearby in the market will also be turned into a deli and bar called The Arch. It will offer coffees, breakfasts, salads and sandwiches during weekdays, and will be Little Feast’s main bar – serving cocktails, ciders, beers and wine – when the street food market is running.
The whole space will be decked out with plants and long communal tables for eating at while there’ll also be sunken sofas under trees and regular DJs of an evening.
Little Feast will run from 5pm Thursdays and Fridays and 11am on Saturdays and Sundays until 11pm each evening (9pm on Sundays). The Arch will serve coffees and food from 7.30am – 5pm Tuesday to Friday. Entrance is free.
