London To Get Three New Market Halls

This article in the Standard, describes the start of an interesting new venture.

This is the first few paragraphs.

Mannequins will make way for food stalls at the former BHS store in Oxford Street as it transforms into a bustling hub for foodies under plans to open as the UK’s largest food hall.

BHS ceased trading in 2016 and the site sat largely empty until Polish fashion label Reserved moved in last year. Now, the remaining space at the beleaguered department store chain will be the flagship branch of a new venture bringing three permanent food markets to the capital.

A disused Tube station ticket hall in Fulham and a former nightclub in Victoria will also be transformed.

Between them the markets will feature more than 50 bars and eateries, including outposts of well-known London restaurants and street food traders as well as a smaller number of start-ups.

The venue in Oxford Street will certainly be handy if I need a spot of lunch, when I’m in the area.

But will it make the streets more crowded? Or will Crossrail and pedestrianisation give everybody a lot more space?
