New Foodie Boxpark Launches in Croydon

East London's Boxpark, which opened in 2011, is now so much a part of the Shoreditch landscape that it's hard to imagine the area without it.

The shipping container pop-up mall has proved so popular that a brand new one is opening on the other side of the river: drumroll please for Boxpark Croydon, which launches on 31 October.

The south London addition to the Boxpark family will be a solely food and drink affair, with over 30 traders of all styles and cuisines. Carnivores' favourite MEATliquor will be serving up their famous burgers and fried chicken, and London institution The Breakfast Club will be on hand the Morning After to offer remedies for even the biggest Night Before.

Fuel up on your five a day from Get Juiced, or cure your caffeine craving thanks to the Department of Coffee and Social Affairs.

Brazillian food from Carioca

Spice-seekers will be satisfied with offerings from Thai Express, Indi-go and Chilango, among others.

Set over two foodie floors of iconic shipping containers, the sheer variety of gourmet goods may be more mind-blowing than the chillies. Brazilian food will be served by Brixton's Carioca - think cassava rosti with slow cooked spicy pulled beef and crispy sweet potato, best served with a strong Caipirinha. We're sold.

The new Boxpark in Croydon will have space for 2000 people

Offering a capacity of 2,000, Boxpark Croydon aims to establish itself as a casual dining hotspot south of the river. Just around the corner from East Croydon station, the new food space will be a focal point for an area that is fast evolving into a cultural hub.

As well as a place to head to when you have nothing in the fridge/fancy some epic food, Boxpark will also offer private dining, and a number of regular and special events. From weekly markets to cooking workshops, launch parties to chef masterclasses, there'll be lots going on.

The launch follows the weekend's hugely successful opening festival in partnership with Eskimo Dance and NME, which saw grime artists Jme, Section Boyz, Ghetts, Novelist and more play at the brand new development.

There will be plenty of options for a hearty breakfast

Boxpark will open properly to the public on October 31. Monday to Saturday, the pop-up will be open 7am-11pm, and 8am-10pm on Sundays, meaning that, technically, you could go there for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. When the food and drink line up looks so good, who could blame you?
