To tie in with the reopening of its Oxford Street store on 2 December, Selfridges will also be extending outdoors with its first-ever open-air Christmas market. Christmas Market on the Mews will see nine food trucks pull up to Edward Mews, round the back of Selfridges, along with festive fairground rides, stalls selling wreaths, Christmas trees, decorations and gifts, and, weirdly, a ‘tunnel of light’ – presumably with a capacity of one household bubble at a time under social distancing. Street Feast founder and very busy man Dominic Cools-Lartigue has helped curate the food truck line-up, showcasing eats influenced by cuisines across the world.
The market will feature food from his recently launched Tramshed Project, as well as hosting the likes of Fundi Pizza, Pabellon and even vegan pick ’n’ mix from Ask Mummy Daddy. To complete the Christmas market mood, Pop Dogs Official is selling German currywurst and bratwurst. Glühwein from an actual booze trolley – the Drinks Cart will be roaming around the market selling hot buttered rums and warm apple ciders, as well as trad mulled wine. The Marylebone mews market will be launching on 3 December and will run daily throughout December, between 4–9pm on weekdays and 12–9pm at weekends.
