Berwick Street Market and its recipe for success

What makes Soho so iconic? For some, the age-old attraction has been the bold sense of liberalism, for others, it may be the quirky independent retailers that have filled the bustling streets.

What makes Soho so iconic? For some, the age-old attraction has been the bold sense of liberalism, for others, it may be the quirky independent retailers that have filled the bustling streets. One thing’s for certain, the Berwick Street market has been an integral aspect of this unique charm.

Its origins trace back to the late 1770s but it was not officially recognised as a market until 1892, still making it one of London’s oldest markets. Even back then, what made the market so special was that it played host to a vast array of nationalities from Italians to Huguenot immigrants1 all serving their native delicacies. Since then, it has established itself as a leading location for the most exotic foods that London has to offer. Did you know for example, that Berwick Street Market introduced London to the tomato in 1880 and the grapefruit in 1890?

Not simply just another food market, visitors can experience contemporary cuisine from across the globe, whether it be Afghani street food or Jamaican rice and peas. With a continued appetite for discovering foods of the world, the market is a place that locals and tourists alike continue flock to.

PMB Holdings understands the rich heritage of Soho and has made sure that this project is specifically designed to both sustain and invest even more character into an already rich legacy.
