Located in the pedestrianised square off the King’s Road, The Duke of York markets have the freshest and best ingredients available (Chelsea residence would expect nothing less, of course!). They sell everything from good quality French cheeses to cup cakes, Malaysian cuisine to Moroccan food. They also have an oyster and champagne bar (oh, so Chelsea!).
More than 150 small speciality food producers are involved with an average of over 40 stalls setting up shop each week. It is quite a sight to see, even if you go with the intention that you just want to ‘browse’, I bet you won’t be able to resist the odd purchase! However, with all the samples going around (truffle cheese is my fave, I am sure you will fill right up!).
The Duke of York markets started up by the upmarket food shop Partridges back in 2005, the market gives small, artisan producers and family businesses the chance to trade in this expensive part of town. Popina, winner of the Waitrose 2006 Small Producers of the Year Awards for Bakery, is a good example.
It’s a fun way to spend a Saturday afternoon and real foodies always drop into Patridges whilst you’re at it 🙂
When? Every Saturday 10am-4pm
Where? Duke of York Square, The Kings Road, Chelsea
