Island Poké opens at Camden Market

LabTech, owner of Camden Market, has announced the launch of a first-ever kiosk for award-winning poké bowl brand, Island Poké.

The kiosk, located in Camden Market’s Lower Market Hall, has been designed to reflect Island Poké’s unique style and aesthetic, and includes 5 counter spaces for sit-in dining. The menu features the brand’s tried and tested poké bowls, with a ‘build your own’ that can have over 52,000 combinations, and as part of the launch the infamous Island Poké ‘£1 bowl day’ will take place on May 26.

With 13 ‘islands’ across London, the brand has expanded across the capital since its launch five years ago, and last year opened in France for its first international outlet. Island Poké developed Europe’s first vegan poké and they, much like LabTech, hold strong sustainability principles; from how they source seafood, to the increase in plant-based options, to exclusively using biodegradable bowls.

Maggie Milosavljevic, LabTech’s Commercial Director, commented: “Adding best-in-class operators that share our principles remains the ultimate aim for Camden Market, and with Island Poké we have done just that. They will fit perfectly with the existing F&B offer here, and the award-winning menu and innovative vegan options will appeal to a great range of Camden’s consumers and international cuisines we already have on offer.”

James Gould-Porter, Founder of Island Poké, said: “Camden Market has a tenant mix that we feel we work really well with, and a customer base that we’re certain will relate to our brand and ethos. Opening a kiosk here, our first ever, is a great step for Island Poké, and we are excited to showcase our unique personable and high energy service to Camden Market’s patrons.”

This announcement follows the recent news that Camden Market has launched The Farrier, its first-ever neighbourhood pub and restaurant, covering 2,100 sq ft of the historic former horse hospital and stables building.
