Visited on a Sunday morning, travelled some way as their website marketing makes this look like a big market with a lot of varied stalls.
In reality it is super tiny, you can walk round the market in less than 5 minutes - seriously - i couldn't believe it was so small, most stalls are selling things no-one actually needs, this market must for people who don't know what to do with their lives except shop for junk to clutter their homes.
The food stalls claim to be vegan and gluten free but you can see they're really meat based stalls with one item on the menu just to try to pull in hipsters who follow fads rather than catering to the true vegans and gluten free market. There's an Italian food stall with a badly hastily written sign saying 'vegan', and a stall that sells goat curry that says 'vegan options'. No thanks.
There's not much for the true vegan or coeliacs or those who can't eat gluten for health reasons since the street food stalls will have major cross contamination. Really all these stalls seem to be paying lip service to vegan and gluten free, you can tell they don't really believe in it.
Greenwhich market website marketing might be flashy but it sets the wrong expectations, definitely didn't meet expectations.
Disappointed in the experience, and I expect most people will be underwhelmed if they visit too, which is why I can't recommend this as a place to visit, hence the one star. If it was possible I'd have given it zero.
Total waste of time and money travelling to visit here, would never come again.
I enjoyed Greenwich Market as part of a day out with my mum and our family friends. Though we didn’t buy anything, I still enjoyed mooching around the markets taking in the atmosphere and hope to return soon. The food and drink options were particularly enticing, although we had the promise of pie and mash to follow our market visit so managed to resist, though next time I’ll be sure to sample the grub on offer! The crafts stalls were interesting to see, although lent themselves best as souvenirs or gifts I thought – not really something I’d personally pick up for myself. No toilets at the markets but was told the pub on the corner (can’t remember the name) allowed use of their facilities, felt a bit rude but we went in nevertheless and they didn’t bat an eyelid.
very very helpful site I was trying to find out which markets were on a Wednesday to combine with a Tuesday evening Theatre visit
