One of the pioneers of the street food movement, Sourced Market started life at festivals and events in 2007, before opening a permanent site at St Pancras in 2009. The owners are friends Ben O’Brien and Dan O’Neil, who wanted to house passionate local producers with convenience store hours. They now serve 13,000 commuters weekly and have just launched their second, larger venue in Marylebone. Inside, you’ll find a coffee bar, deli counter, bakery and off-licence with 16 craft beers and wines on tap. Seasonal British foods occupy 90 per cent of the produce space and the Scotch counter serves different takes on the traditional favourite. The beetroot and cumin offering is our pick of the bunch. Barbecue season is in full swing, so grab a bottle of Dalston Chilies Chipotle Ketchup for this weekend’s burgers and wash it down with World of Zing’s barrel-aged negroni. Owner Ben is obsessed with craft beer and with more than 80 craft breweries in London, he saw the off-licence as a natural progression to mix business with pleasure. Building strong relationships with new-wave British brewers such as Beavertown and The Kernel means Sourced gets access to limited-run brews that challenge wine for complexity and flavour. LF.
