The company launched its 30-trader market site in Camden’s west market yard two years ago, and has since curated a rotating roster of traders from its books, serving a variety of world street food options. It later launched what was billed as its first bricks-and-mortar site in the same section of the market.
“We have loved our time at Camden and are proud of the transformation that we have driven,” reads a statement on the company’s website.
“We have developed over 30 new street food businesses, re-designed the market, overhauled quality and hygiene, animated the canal area, and now it is time for us to move on to new projects in the capital.
It is unclear whether all the Kerb traders will be leaving the Camden site before Camden Market takes back the responsibility of running and managing the market, although vegan Mexican trader Club Mexicana is the first vendor to confirm that they will be vacating their pitch by the end of the month.
The company says that its aim is to “animate spaces, in collaboration with partners who share our vision for the future of street food”, and says that it will continue to do so at other yet-to-be-announced London locations.
KERB currently operates sites in the capital in King’s Cross, West India Quay, London Bridge and at The Gherkin.
Last week, it launched two new markets in further-flung areas of London, in Peckham and Crouch End. The two new markets collaborate with local producers and craftspeople, and are open on Saturdays only- a first for the group.
Big Hospitality has contacted Kerb for comment.
