Take a look at some of the best markets to visit in the area:

Deptford Market

Deptford Market has been operating in the local area since 1872, where it originally served as a cattle market for meat traders at Smithfields Market. Since then, the market has moved to Deptford High Street and is open to the public on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, offering a wide variety of goods from local traders, including fresh fish, fruit and vegetables, clothing and household items.

Deptford Market Yard

A modern take on a market, Deptford Market Yard brings together restaurants, bars and shops beneath the arches of Deptford train station. Keen foodies have plenty to discover at Deptford Market Yard which includes the likes of The Tapas Room, which serves authentic, Spanish tapas, and Mama Jerk’s, offering flavoursome Jamaican street food. There are a number of independent businesses to support too, such as record store, Disc World, and artisan florist, The English Flowerhouse.

Brockley Market

A short walk away is Brockley Market, an award-winning farmers market taking place every Saturday at the Lewisham College carpark. There’s a vast selection of produce available to purchase including seafood, dairy products, baked goods, herbs and spices and locally roasted coffees. Those looking to grab a bite to eat there can feast on an epic burger from Mother Flipper or delicious doughnut from Crosstown.

Greenwich Market

Also nearby is the famous Greenwich Market. Established in 1713, Greenwich Market had around 60 stalls when it first opened, the majority of which were butchers, from across London. It’s now home to more than 100 different traders selling everything from antiques and art to street food and clothing. There’s also an astrologist at Greenwich Market as well as Ki Life Energy, which provides healing treatments through sounds and vibrations.
