FOOD & DRINK
You must contact Camden Council and register yourself as someone selling food. You can download the registration form here.
Things work slightly differently with selling food. The first thing you need to do is submit a “food proposal” to the management via our online form. This is basically just a menu, outlining what you intend to sell. We ask for this to stop people selling the same kind of food. If you can include pictures please do.
All food traders start mon-fri only. After an initial trial it is possible to obtain a weekend pitch, if one is available. Food Stalls also start at £15 per day. If you have any more questions at all please give us a call on: 0207 485 7963
Food stalls are restricted to a total of 4500 W, which is about 3 hot plates. You will need to use gas, which you supply yourself, if you need more power than this.
All of our outdoor electrical supplies use 16 amp IP44 plugs. You must have adequate cables of a good quality, of sufficient length (at least 15m) with the correct connections. You must supply your own electrical cables.
Storage is available to permanent stall holders only. Please feel free to talk to any of the managers to discuss the various options.
Parking is available near by. We can easily direct you there once you are here. It is around £12 per day if you let them know you are a trader at Camden Lock.
Limited free parking is available close by at weekends – please ask a manager to direct you when you are here.
