Not just a cool something-for-everyone market, West Norwood Feast is also a worthwhile local enterprise. Space-makers – the regeneration group behind Brixton Village – came up with the market idea to give a boost to a forgotten borough. It’s resulted in this pretty and quaint shopping oasis popping up in SE27. There’s Retro Village, up by West Norwood station, serving up vintage fashion and homewares to fans of the old-fangled; Artisan’s Hub, with live craft sessions and workshops from and for the knitting-needle clackers; Fresh ‘n’Green, which is the food and garden produce bit; and Food Fair – where gluttons can dive into street nosh. It’s a cracking operation – one local told us they’d moved to West Norwood because of it. We wouldn’t go that far, but it’s definitely worth spending your Sunday here.
Martin Grover, who you’ll find in the Artisan Market, is a local artist whose prints of Norwood life and fictional bus-stops are surprisingly un-naff.

This event was in my "what to do this weekend" email from Timeout. I was so excited to go because my family and I had lots of fun at last year's feast. I'm standing outside the usual feast venue and there is NO feast this weekend! Timeout got the date wrong! Timeout, I'm very disappointed. Check your facts before you post. The 1 star is for timeout while the event itself I'd give 3 stars.
This is a cracking monthly event (with a few down months in winter), but you need to check the website more carefully as today was just a volunteer drive, not the actual event. We went down there as I saw you said it was on, and it wasn't. Next time I'll just check the actual Feast website! http://westnorwoodfeast.com/
Great day out in West Norwood with plenty of things to do and to eat, West Norwood Feast is become a trendy place.
