Herne Hill Community Market
10-4, every Sunday in Station Square.
A blind-folded piano player? WI-style cake competition? How about a Lebanese falafel while you wait? And have you met Daisy the… (no, not cow) sheep?
All of the above, please. That’s the order of the day at the Herne Hill market which, despite its relatively short 2 and a half year history, has gone from being a traditional food market to a weekend destination with its bustling stalls, glorious aromas and quirky events programme.
The stalls host a wide array of locally sourced goods, with delectable cheeses and chorizos, breads from local bakers, Kentish ciders, South London burgers, as well as hot food from across the globe –Ethiopian curries, Thai wraps and Vietnamese salads.
But it’s not just about the food, oh no. Chefs are joined by craftspeople selling their handmade jewellery, printed T Shirts, pretty watercolours and vintage bric-a-brac. And with deckchairs, giant board games, piano competitions, live music, farm animals, cookery demos and its very own town crier, you would be forgiven for thinking you’d stepped out of South London and perhaps joined Alice, in Wonderland?
It’s no wonder that it has earned praise from the Queen of Hearts / Shops herself, Mary Portas, who is a big fan, and has been awarded by DCLG as a thriving town centre.
So if you’re yet to sample the Herne Hill Market goodness, come on down, and keep an eye on our events page to see what new, phantasmagorical idea we dream up next.
The Market is organised by the Herne Hill Forum (in association with the excellent CCFM), a volunteer-led community group of local residents and traders, who work together to make Herne Hill a fantastic place to live, work and do business.
