The best farmers’ markets in London
Located in Lewisham College car park, this friendly weekly market makes a great place to pick up some quality groceries. The focus is on locally-sourced seasonal food, whether that’s a joint for your Sunday lunch, your basic supply of fresh fruit and veg, or cakes, artisan breads, cheese and charcuterie for a special occasion. Highlights include organic meats from Jacob’s Ladder, free-range poultry from Fosse Meadow, organic veg from Wild Country Organics and excellent Spanish cheeses and chorizo from Flavours of Spain.
This award-winning monthly food market puts on regular events and performances to keep its punters happy, but really it's all about the edibles. 26 farmers and producers run stalls selling everything from Portuguese custard tarts to venison and wild boar sausages. The market runs on Maple Road from 9am-1pm on every third Saturday of the month.
This famous market has been around for quite a while, with its history stretching all the way back to 1737. What the original stallholders would make of today's mix of record stores, fashion shops, contemporary art galleries, tattoo studios and spas is anyone's guess. They'd probably be okay with the antiques, though. The market is open throughout the week, with many of the venues open every day but some sellers operating on specific days. Shops include Rush Hair, The Flood Gallery, Beadoir Jewellery, Beauty and the Bib, Oliver Bonas and Waterstone's. Restaurants include Bill's, Champagne + Fromage, Cafe Rouge, Sticks 'n' Sushi, GBK and Bianco 43.
