Time Out says

A south-east London market that sells quite possibly everything.

Not to be confused with nearby regenerated commercial hub Deptford Market Yard, Deptford Market is as traditional as they come. Dubbed by social researcher Charles Booth in the 1890s as ‘the Oxford Street of south London’, this market might no longer see the high footfall of the past, but in the face of staunch competition from pricier farmers’ markets and the rise of online retailers, it’s managed to thrive.

The market, which operates on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 9am-5.30pm, spans Deptford High Street, Douglas Way and the junction with Griffin Way. Deptford High Street is where you’ll find fresh fish, fruit and veg, multi-cultural foods, fabrics and assorted bits-and-bobs. Meanwhile, Douglas Way is a treasure trove of bric-à-brac, both new and old. It’s worth popping down before midday, as many traders pack up after lunch. Alim Kheraj
