A historic south London market that specialises in antiques and arts and crafts.

If Greenwich Market looks familiar, it could be because you’ve seen Lord Sugar’s lackeys scanning its stalls for random items like skeletons and old coins during the ever-popular ‘buying task’ on ‘The Apprentice’. But this historic eighteenth-century market – London’s only one set in a World Heritage Site – is definitely worth perusing in a more leisurely fashion.

Open seven days a week from 10am-5.30pm, and situated in the heart of charming Greenwich, this large indoor market houses around 120 stalls selling jewellery, clothes, second-hand furniture, unusual gifts and general bric-à-brac. Go on Tuesday and Thursday for a greater number of antiques stalls, or any other day for an arts and crafts focus. The market is surrounded by a range of independent stores and fashion chains, so if you’re in the mood to treat yourself you won’t be disappointed.

Greenwich Market has a lot to browse, but there’s no need to worry about hunger cramping your haggling style. On any given day you’ll find around 40 food and drink stalls selling street bites, sweet treats and artisan sarnies.

Top tip: Make a day of it by travelling to Greenwich on a Thames riverboat and pay a visit to the nearby Cutty Sark, Royal Observatory or National Maritime Museum. Nick Levine

Greenwich Market is my favourite place to spend time at the weekend! They have so many food stalls and options, and all of the people are just lovely people. It almost feels like you're not in London anymore. Everyone lets you sample their cuisine before you make your choice - it's the best! I love the pasta stall that's there and my boyfriend is the biggest fan of the Ethiopian stall. They have a lot of vegan and gluten free options around. There's also a cool fudge place, and a to-die-for cheesecake stall. I cannot get enough of it - I wish I had unlimited space in my stomach for all the yummy treats.

The market stalls are also fun to look around - there's often a cool pop-up cards place as well as a few arty stalls if you want a new addition to your walls.


my wife bought her anti-theft backpack from www.tripatricks.com. She was so much pleased !

Greenwich Market is a small market located just a few minutes away from Cutty Sark's DLR station, where you can find a variety of goods to buy, from designers clothes, to street food, paintings and antiques. However, I found it to be a bit of a tourist trap as the market is quite small, not all stalls are open during the week and most of the so called "street-food" is extremely overpriced.

Greenwich Market is well-established market set in a world heritage site, a great spot to spend a Saturday morning! A large variety of goodies and treats that caters to all. If you're in the area, it's definitely worth a visit.

Probably one of the most ‘posh’ markets in London. Lots of variety and high quality things to buy, from paintings, kids book and clothing to amazing a delicious food - you’ll find vegan, gluten free, yummy in my tummy guilty pleasures and pretty much anything you would hope for.

Definitely one market to visit in London.

It's a lovely quaint market. Lots of talented local designers and a few who also have pop ups/stalls at Spitalfields.


Less touristy than Spitalfields and Borough but it was packed when I was there during the bank holiday weekend.


Great food and drinks offerings but nothing really stand out for me.


The distance will not make me visit often. But it is a great place for those local and close to Greenwich.

A great alternative to the busier central markets (Spitalfields, Borough Market etc), delish food from all over the world, fresh farmer's produce, lovely churros (Brazilian style - filled with the sauce instead of served with it on the side)...

This is a great small market which has lots of food and drink stalls. There are also stalls selling items such as jewellery, clothes and film memorabilia. It was quite crowded when I went. I've also heard that there is a churros stall in the market which has the best churros. I didn't manage to try them so will try to go back just for these!

There's nothing wrong with this market and you can expect all the goodies and groceries you usually would at any other market. What I would say is that there was an air of relaxation in the vendors eyes which was pleasant. Its never great when one is being hustled out of their money and you sure won't experience that here. Well at least I didnt

Friendly and vibrant atmosphere. It's refreshing to find a market where everything is created by those selling it and you can always find something unique and individual. A fantastic creative hub.

I love Greenwich Market for the wonderful variety and especially the food. Because it is hidden in the midst of such a rich area ,the day there is complete and always memorable. I have been 100 times and intend to go 100 more.
