King’s Cross Station market

Billed as the Real Food Market, artisan products, outside King’s Cross Station, I found to be something of a disappointment.

I had spotted it last time I passed through King’s Cross Station, and thought I would get something to eat.

I had in my mind a street food market something like the South Bank Street Food Market, but it is more like a farmers market, in which case the wrong location, as most people are going to be travellers hoping to find something to eat on their journey.

Produce on sale was expensive (though that may be a reflection of pitch fees), for example £2.95 for something like a flapjack.

The market was all but deserted, and that was lunchtime.

Sign said Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Today was Monday.

Having a quality  artisan food market outside King’s Cross Station is an excellent idea, but it has to be quality fare suitable for travellers.  Could it be the chains peddling their rubbish within the station, are preventing this happening?
