Sourced Market opens first City store in Barbican

Food and drink specialist Sourced Market has opened the doors to its latest market, located in London's Barbican. Created around the concept of a 'food library', the space houses both a retail deli and food store as well as an open kitchen serving grab-and-go and dining-in food.

Designed by London agency YourStudio, the venue is open from early morning through to evening, with a range of craft beers on tap. The environment modulates to suit the time of day, effortlessly transitioning from bustling breakfast venue to sophisticated pre-theatre hang-out in the evening.

The seating ranges from upholstered banquettes and Thonet bentwood chairs to window perch bars and a bespoke concrete cast sharing table with a central trough bursting with ferns and other woodland plants.

The choice of colours, textures and materials frame the transition from daytime to evening with soft lighting playing on white tiling and marble, drawing customers' eyes to the food and drinks on offer.

YourStudio created a space that feels warm and welcoming, whatever time of day you arrive. Quarry tiles on the floor draw reference from the nearby Barbican and Golden Lane Estates, with cast concrete industrial details.

A bespoke mural by Alice Bowsher illustrates local places and characters, giving diners something to look at while sitting in the window.
