After being hit by a second lockdown, Selfridges is trying to make up for lost time.
This week, the famous department store’s doors will reopen but this time, with an added twist.
Selfridges is redesigning the mews market that was first opened back in the summer, with a well timed Christmas revamp.
The market will feature gourmet street food, as well as retail stalls and even fairground rides.
Among the list of businesses trading there will be Fundi Pizza serving Neopolitan style pizzas and Only Jerkin with their fried chicken and jerk gravy.
Selfridges will also be selling their own selection from their food range so you’ll be able to buy Christmas pudding, gingerbread and more.
Other food stalls will include:
- Pabellon – Venezuelan traders serving dishes such as Arepa filled corn bread
- Tramshed Project – Run by chefs Andrew Clarke and Daniel Watkins, who will be serving burgers and BBQ
- Ask Mummy Daddy – Traditional and vegan pick and mix sweets.
- Pop Dogs Official – Currywurst and bratwurst as well as vegan sausages.
- Gully – North Indian street food
- Choco Fruit – Fruit drizzled in chocolate and covered in a choice of toppings
- Sicilian Goods – Italian Christmas sweet treats
- Cheese Wheel – Fresh pasta made in a supersized wheel of Grana Padano
Drinks will also be available to buy from a roaming drinks cart, serving different beverages from mulled wine to warm apple ciders.
You’ll be able to stock up with Christmas decoration and goods, with items such as trees from Moyses Stevens, toys and wreaths.
The Marylebone mews market will be launching on 3 December and will run daily throughout December, between 4–9pm on weekdays and 12–9pm at weekends.
‘We’re very excited to welcome customers back into our London store with the addition of our brilliant new Christmas market – a destination for visitors to become immersed in the joy of Christmas,’ said Meave Wall, store director at Selfridges.
‘We’ve brought together some of the best food traders in London, alongside fairground rides and stalls with gifts from independent British brands for those wishing to do some Christmas shopping.’
‘The open-air environment not only means everyone can wrap up and enjoy warming hot chocolates and the festive lights, but it’s a convenient way for Londoners and any visitors to the capital to enjoy the festivities and create magical new memories.’
It won’t be one to miss.
