Mexican Independence Day Market at Coal Drops Yard

El Pastor & Coal Drops Yard set to celebrate

‘Mexican Independence Day’ this September


10-12 September 2021

11am – 8pm



This year Mexico celebrates its ‘Year of Independence’ :  the ‘700th anniversary of the founding of Mexico-Tenochtitlan and the 500th anniversary of the fall of the city that became the country’s capital city.’ To mark the occasion, a festive market will showcase the best of Mexico outside Casa & Plaza Pastor on 10, 11 & 12 of September in Coal Drops Yard: The Mexican Independence Day Market.


The event follows the success of the Mexican Christmas Market that brought us such a colourful taste of Mexico back in 2020 in the same place.

The event takes place with the support of El Pastor, Coal Drops Yard and the Embassy of Mexico in the UK.

El Pastor is a small group of Mexican taquerias in London, inspired by the decade the founders spent in Mexico City, running cult nightclub, El Colmillo and searching for the city’s best al pastor taco. The Pastor restaurants make all of their tortillas in-house using heritage Mexican corn and offer tacos, tostadas, quesadillas, mezcal, tequila and lively scenes. The original El Pastor was opened on Stoney Street, just off Borough Market in December 2016, and met with public and critical acclaim. Casa Pastor and Plaza Pastor followed in Coal Drops Yard in October 2018, and El Pastor Soho, the newest in the gang, opened in June 2021 at 66-67 Brewer Street.
