  • Permanent market ingredients. Also get to taste, cheese, Pate, bread, alcohol, sweets, and variety store still has fun. And even the chartering car snack is recommended can watch while eating.

  • London’s oldest market, and still one of its best! No visit to London would be complete without a visit here for a grazing brunch or lunch. The best and busiest days is a Saturday when all the traders are open and the atmosphere is at its liveliest. Best to come early though to avoid having to queue too long. Amazing selection of different foods and treats available , and it’s hard to pick just a few items. There is seating available in the market , or you can take your purchases and head to the churchyard next door, or head towards the Thames where you can relax and enjoy the London buzz.
  • Excellent food here, most by small suppliers and artisans. Not at lot of places to sit and enjoy the food, but still worth the visit. Here you can find excellent wine and natural wine (try Elliot's restaurant), cheese (stall and just outside the market, Neal's), fresh baked bread, craft beer, fruit juices, seafood, flowers, etc. Just amazing. Most places take cards, but it's good idea to bring some cash. It's a good option to go on a rainy day.
  • Definitely worth a visit when you are in London. The market gets busy on Saturday's but it is part of the charm. The grounds contained various food joints that were fun to pass by even if you did not want to buy anything. Some tents had bigger lines than others depending on the popularity. There is a place to sit if you go outside of the main market area where you can actually sit and eat.
  • I love this place..i come here all the time. So many samples to try. Take time to chat to the stall holders rather than just stuff your face. They work hard and are up at the crack of dawn setting up. If you love diversity like i do you will love this place
  • Travelled here as a passing point between The Shard and Tate Modern, and I was thoroughly impressed by the sights and smells. They were promoting the use of refillable bottles as opposed to plastic, and the food itself was very tasty. There were a great range of stalls as well.
