Serving the residents of Peckham, Dulwich and Camberwell for 14 years, Peckham Farmers Market is a FARMA certified weekly affair. Run by the Urban Farmers Market and offering fresh, home grown produce all under a covered roof, traders include Flour Power City Organic Bakery, Burscombe Cliffe Farm and Alham Wood Cheeses. The majority of vendors are organic, biodynamic or otherwise, and although such phrases often imply that you’ll be paying through the nose, we’re promised that all produce is fairly priced.

Peckham has no shortage of market style stall for food and spices but shopping on a sunday means you can mix it up and throw in the farmers market options too.


There is everything you would expect from a farmers market and actually much more reasonably priced than some of the other local competitors (ahem telegraph hill, constantly bankrupting me). There is an amazing pastry stall, full of the most sticky sweet treat (try their custard tarts, crispy and chewy with light vanilla filling) and organic produce from the uk, if you, like me, seem to be constantly on the hunt for particular ingredients this is a good bet- wild garlic, elderflower or fresh oregano etc!

Its located under the library, well worth popping along.

Peckham's Sunday Farmers Market under the infamous library's extended roof has somewhat become a little institution in its own right. Both early birds and night owls will find their 5-a-day goodness here, which in the case of the night owl may be well needed indeed. Fresh produce, a box of organic eggs for about £1.50, colourful veg, fragrant bread and sticky-sweet cake...the quality is great and the prices are not to be mourned over! The only thing that could be improved is its size. I am sure a couple more stalls would be received with open arms, perhaps even some music or a way to engage the local children! After all, this neat little market is nestled in between the Peckham Community Wall (a large mural full of well wishes, dreams and ideas that the local community collectively created in the wake of the 2011 riots) and The Peckham Platform Community Art Gallery. This little centrepiece has seen a lot of change over the years and with community engagement now being its core aim and value, a little bit more effort to encourage people to stick around would make this place a truly "Peckish" gem!
