We’re celebrating all October long as we reach an epic milestone – OUR 10TH BIRTHDAY!  

Throughout the month we’ll be going full circle to take a look back at the journey of KERB and its members over the last decade. 

From scoffing Petra’s chocolate dipped bananas, to munching on street food at one of our many events, visiting our weekly markets, supporting our inKERBators, and of course, feasting with us here at Seven Dials Market… Over the past 10 years we’ve seen over 200 incredibly talented street food traders rise up through the ranks and go on to some amazing success, selling over 6.5 million dishes between them.

Get those elasticated waistbands at the ready as we take you on a culinary adventure of KERB history…

KERB hosts The Bucket List and Living on the Veg (and then turns five!)

The Bucket List – London’s ultimate fried chicken adventure came to King’s Cross – with KERB traders competing to win the fried chicken crown. Did you join us? El Pollote were crowned the winners, and went on to move in to our flagship food hall…

But it’s not all about the carnivores. How can we forget Living On The Veg? The event featured eight traders over two days, serving up their finest vegan street food dishes, including deep fried jackfruit wingz, peanut-butter mud pieces and so much more. Petare were crowned the winner!

And just like that, we turned five! As always, our birthday bash was another one to remember.
