Achieve Pop Up Success at Shepherd’s Bush Market

2016 saw a whole new wave of pop up food traders hit our historic market.

From crepes to Caribbean food we’ve seen a whole new generation of trader achieve success right on our doorstep. So if you’re on the fence about trading with us, why not see how our most recent additions found their experience…

The German Wholegrain Baker’s Shop

Run by sisters Susanne and Alexandra, we just loved what TGWBS added to the market. Selling wholegrain bakes, the family recipes went down a treat with customers and traders alike. Exceeding even their own expectations, they sold out of bread only half way through their first day! We asked the siblings how they found their time here; We had a very good time at your market. We can see the potential for us here as many customers were very interested in our products and the variety. The ambience is very nice and friendly and it seems that the customers enjoy strolling through.”

The German Wholegrain Baker’s Shop will hopefully be making a comeback soon, so keep an eye on our twitter!

Wowshee’s

Wowshee's at Shepherd's Bush Market

Sister brand to The Beledi Kitchen, ‘Wowshee’s’ is a new street food concept that has taken Shepherd’s Bush by storm. A unique twist on Egyptian street food, these sizzling sandwiches are prepared fresh everyday, with your choice of meat (beef or chicken) or vegetarian – they also serve up an amazing Nutella Wowshee which is not to be missed! So we asked owner, Adam Eleshi, how has the experience been so far?; “As a trading company the Beledi team have found it very easy to settle in. We found existing traders very supportive and an excellent management team that has helped us every step of the way.”

Heavenly Crepes

Serving up some amazing creations Heavenly Crepes were hugely popular within the market. Not a moment went by during their first day that they weren’t busy, exceeding their expectations by a mile!

Owner Kaz said ‘We had a great day, we’ll be back with some exciting new crepe creations’ – and so they did, they immediately signed up for the day after!

Street Feed

Our latest pop up trader Street Feed has been serving up the best jerk chicken this side of town for the last few weekends. Serving up burgers, wraps and rice dishes this Caribbean cuisine is not to be missed. With over 7 sauces from sweet to spicy, and a range of dishes to suit everyone’s taste, they’ve settled in so well they’ve signed on indefinitely…
