ABOUT: This weekend market in south London specializes in arts and crafts, books, furniture and jewellery. The market takes place in the former textile mills that were once the home of the silk-printing works for famous Regent Street store Liberty’s. The mills ceased operation in 1970 and lay empty till 1989, when they were converted into a cultural visitor centre.
Stalls are free to hire, which encourages a multitude of sculptors, card-makers and other artists to show their wares. Additionally, live music and children’s activities take place every weekend, as well as craft classes, pottery workshops, demonstrations and plays.
The market is surrounded by restaurants, shops and pubs which are open every day of the week; dance classes, theatre and other workshops also take place regularly throughout the week. The market opens every Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 5pm.
