Peckham Farmers Market
Serving the residents of Peckham, Dulwich and Camberwell for 14 years, Peckham Farmers Market is a FARMA certified weekly affair. Run by the Urban Farmers Market and offering fresh, home grown produce all under a covered roof, traders include Flour Power City Organic Bakery, Burscombe Cliffe Farm and Alham Wood Cheeses. The majority of vendors are organic, biodynamic or otherwise, and although such phrases often imply that you’ll be paying through the nose, we’re promised that all produce is fairly priced.
