Maltby Street Market
Time Out says
During the summer of 2010, a quiet bubble of gastronomic intent was swelling under the railway arches in Bermondsey. This unlikely south-east London backwater quickly became a popular destination for a Saturday morning wander with a bit of grocery shopping along the way. A few years on, many new traders have got involved, the recently Ropewalk has become a full-on street market, and some of the original bunch have moved down the road to Spa Terminus. Find out about the gastronomic delights that await beneath the arches.
Ropewalk is now open 9am-4pm Sat and 11am-4pm Sun but Spa Terminus is still strictly Saturdays only (around 9am-2pm for most producers), so that’s the day to take it all in.

Re-visted this market after several years and it has really picked up! Huge number of stalls with lots of different food on offer. Can get crowded but there's spots to sit along a wall at one end of the street.
Great market with a mixture of street food, bakery treats, cafes and bars. I especially like the gin bar where they serve their gin cocktails out of jars - very on trend! It does get super busy on the weekends so be aware of crowds, but still worth a visit.
It's easy to forget that for all of Matlby's charms, they food spots close ridiculously early on a Saturday - but that's my only qualm with this pretty market. It looks lovely in the sunshine and offers a great variety of stalls including the wonderful Waffle On, which does an incredible chicken and waffles.
It's worth pilgrimaging down here early on a Saturday morning just for the St John doughnuts. Eat in their new bakery restaurant and have a few with a glass of bubbly for an extremely decadent sugary start to the weekend. Their granola is also awesome, so worth picking up a bag of that too while you're down there.
