Greenwich Market

Weekends see Greenwich Market packed with international tourists enjoying arts, craft and food stalls. Some of the offerings (logo T-shirts, 'art' canvases, leather bags) can seem a little unimaginative if you're used to the plentiful and varied markets of central London, but the covered arcade still holds a certain charm. While the market is on all week (Tue-Sun), antiques and collectible dealers dominate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Head along on these days to unearth unusual finds among a selection of stalls dealing in antique jewellery, vintage clothes, old books,1950s and ’60s ceramics, lamps and more.

I'm giving this 5 stars given that I picked up an amazing red vintage red long cape from a store here for a bargain price of £70 which comes out every Christmas! Such a nice atmosphere and plenty of interesting things to look at. Lots of nice food stalls for snacks and drinks, especially fab sweet treats like yummy cupcakes!


There is nothing not to like about Greenwich Market. It's full of history and culture, and the stalls contain handmade gems from all corners of the mind. There are pottery and textile stalls, each selling 'one of a kind' pieces, as well as a plethora of amazing smelling (and tasting) food stalls. 

Warning - do not go here on an empty stomach, or with an empty wallet - you will  have no choice but to buy an obscene amount of food, eat it all and then wonder why you feel so comfortably full! BUT, it will taste amazing, and you can wash it down with a pint from one of the million pubs nearby! My particular favourite is the sushi stall, where you can watch super skilled sushi chefs make it in front of you, with hands so quick you could only dream of replicating.


Greenwich Market is a dangerous place to go. It has great character and there are so many creations for sale that you've been perfectly happy to live without before, but suddenly really want, that you have to be quite disciplined. 

Whenever I go there, I have the sudden urge to want to create something myself to display there as the creativity and inventiveness on the stalls is always amazing.  The food stalls all look tempting as well - why can't there be room in our stomachs for one of each?


With the change in the weather this is the perfect time to wrap up warm and head down to Greenwich Market on the weekend to indulge in the glorious food market. There is something for everyone. Make sure you have a good look round before making a commitment as there are so many tempting choices pulled pork rolls, home made indian snacks, churros with salted caramel sauce, dim sum, Ethiopian veggie delights. Excuse me got to call some friends and see if anyone fancies a lunch date at Greenwich tomorrow. 


Greenwich market is one of my absolute faves. It's small, compact but really buzzy, almost always. Some great little stands, and some nice permanent shops around the edge. But it's the food market that wows - I guarantee you can't walk through there without buying something to eat. It's a 1 minute walk from Cutty Sark station, and a nice mid way point on a stroll back or forth from the beautiful park. 


Cute and bursting with character Greenwich market is almost as though somebody has handpicked the best bits of all of London's other markets and put them all under one roof. The market oozes with the quality that others lack. Here you will find lovely people selling fresh food, clothing, gifts and odd bits and bobs such as letterpress characters. The shops and cafes that line the outside edges of the market mean that a whole afternoon could easily be spent here - coupled with a trip to the cutty sark or Greenwich Park and your whole day is sorted ;)

What's not to like about Greenwich Market. It's beautiful and full of character. It's nice to see the old architecture is still present in the area. The market is full of hidden treasures from Bric-a-brac, vintage clothing, food and even a military stall which had loads of old medals and pieces are you wouldn't normally find in many places in London.

We love going to Greenwich Market   Our family favourites are Mr Humbugs sweetie shop, the Mr Magic Man stall, the crazy kaleidoscope stall,  the beautiful designer jewellery especially Charlotte Rudkin and yes - the food! You need to show  their new website - it's all there
