The fourth location for the Sourced Market independent food and drink market has opened on Goswell Road, in collaboration with the Citadines hotel, two minutes walk north from Barbican Station and almost opposite the Barbican’s newest block, Blake Tower, and John Trundle Court. The concept is both a shop and a café which is open through the day from breakfast time to the evenings featuring food and drink from independent suppliers with the option to purchase and take-away, or to eat in on site. Dining in menus may be viewed on the company’s website.
If you are quick you can take advantage of a 50% off launch offer – 50% off food 7am-5pm, 50% off drinks 5pm – 10pm up until the end of the week.
From 21st May, Sourced Market Barbican will be offering a 10% discount to Barbican Association members on production of their membership card at the till.
“We think the Barbican is something of an icon so we took a few design cues from it for our interior” says the market’s founder, Ben O’Brien.
The first Sourced Market opened at St Pancras Station in 2009 and Ben took his inspiration from the food, drink and eating options available at Borough Market where he had been living close by. It was important, as he saw it, to combine the quality, sourcing and atmosphere of a market like Borough Market and combine it in a retail deli/café type outlet where people could buy food to take away, or eat and drink on site. Given that food outlets in railway stations back in 2009 were pretty dire the St Pancras opening went extremely well and O’Brien comments that 25% of the custom has been provided by people coming into the station specifically to access what Sourced Market has to offer.
Sourced Market has opened subsequent outlets in Marylebone and Victoria, so the Barbican opening makes four.
“Our mission is to help our customers discover delicious food and drink from independent producers. Visit us to browse our retail offer or stop for coffee or all-day drinks and dining” states the company’s website – www.sourcedmarket.com
The new ‘Barbican’ market will offer fantastic coffee, artisan bread, bean to bar chocolate, craft beer, wine and a selection of great food that will take you from breakfast to lunch to light plates in the evening. All the produce on offer is ethically and sustainably sourced from producers such as Beavertown beers to Cobble Lane cured meats and Crosstown Doughnuts to Origin coffee.
