Seven Dials Market is a food market located in the historic Seven Dials area of Covent Garden in London. It's an evolution of the modern market experience, merging London’s rich market heritage with contemporary culinary offerings.

Seven Dials Market is housed in a former warehouse known as Thomas Neal’s warehouse, which in the 19th century was a spot known for selling fruits and vegetables. It wasn’t until 2019 that the Seven Dials Market we know today was opened by KERB, a well-regarded food market operator in London. This historic journey has made the Seven Dials Market an iconic symbol of London’s ever-evolving food scene. It’s on the opposite side of Short’s Garden to Neal’s Yard and only a minute away.

The market features a curated selection of food traders, ranging from local artisans to international cuisines. Expect to find everything from gourmet burgers and vegan tacos to artisanal cheeses, speciality coffees, and desserts.

Cucumber Alley is a unique market section for snacks and desserts such as dumplings, buns, waffles and crepes. Several sections of the market are named after fruit and vegetables as a nod to the market’s history.

The market is designed with both communal seating areas and more intimate spots, suitable for different types of visitors, from families to solo travellers. The interior combines modern design elements with rustic touches, creating a cosy yet vibrant atmosphere.

Sustainability

The market focuses on sustainability, with many traders offering locally-sourced ingredients and the market itself working towards waste reduction and other eco-friendly practices.
