LabTech, owner of Camden Market, has announced the launch of plant-based concept, Clean Kitchen, at Camden’s Buck Street Market, the UK’s first dedicated eco-conscious destination.
Clean Kitchen, co-founded by former YouTuber Michael Pearce and TV personality Verity Bowditch, was established as a dark kitchen in 2020, during the first Covid lockdown. Set over two floors and catering to up to 54 covers, the brand’s Buck Street Market site is their first permanent restaurant space in London.
The menu includes their established favourites, such as the beetroot bun chick’n burger, truffle burger, and ‘Plant Girl Summer’ meal deals, as well as vegan bacon mac n cheese, no-chicken katsu bowls, and no meat meatballs, accompanied by some delicious shakes and sides.
Commenting on the opening, Dominic Sergeant, Asset Manager for LabTech, said: “It has been a pleasure collaborating with Clean Kitchen, and supporting them in opening their debut permanent location. It’s an indication of the draw Buck Street Market has for new brands built on the principle of sustainability. Clean Kitchen’s values align seamlessly with the Buck Street Market ecosystem, as they join other hospitality and retail pioneers who are all pushing a more eco-conscious and progressive form of trade.”
Verity Bowditch, Co-Founder of Clean Kitchen, added: “We are delighted that Clean Kitchen has opened at Buck Street Market, as we celebrate our one-year anniversary. To have a permanent space in a destination that promotes shared values, in London’s most forward-thinking neighbourhood, is a great step for our brand. Clean Kitchen makes vegan food and drink exciting from breakfast through to dinner, and we cannot wait to showcase our menu to Camden’s visitors.”
Buck Street Market maintains its commitment to both safe and sustainable practices and processes, including emphasis on recycling and the zero-single-use plastic policy on-site. Whilst across the country, the majority of social distancing measures have been lifted, Buck Street Market will be retaining its hand sanitiser stations and will continue to encourage the trader community to wear masks. Clean Kitchen will, like all businesses, adhere to the most up to date government guidelines on social distancing and cleaning.
