The Cheese Truck and other popular street food ventures will get their first permanent home at the newly renovated Deptford Market Yard.
The mixed-use regeneration project is a public-private partnership development group U and 1, formerly Development Securities before it merged with Cathedral last year, and Lewisham council.
Grilled cheese vendor The Cheese Truck is a regular fixture at Glastonbury Festival, has catered at fashion events for Alexander McQueen and spent six weeks trading in Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
It will be joined at the historical railway arches next to Deptford station by Indian-inspired Frankie Goes to Bollywood, Jamaican street food specialists Mama’s Jerk and supper club turned all day eatery, Dirty Apron.
Lomond Coffee will roast and serve their own blend of coffee while cocktail pop-up Little Nan’s gets its first permanent residency.
Other independent businesses include art shop Childs Draw, homewear store and gallery Depot, lifestyle boutique Win & Ruby and florist -interiors store The Room.
As well as the 14 arches, Deptford Market Yard will be home to a regular weekend market and further retail spaces.
The outlets have begun to open with all stores and restaurants set to be fully operational by early October.
