If you fancy trawling a great london market for vintage homeware and nicknacks then head to Bermondsey, London, on a Friday !
Bermondsey Square London SE1 3UN
6am til 2pm
Time Out says:
Held every Friday, this long-running south London market is heaven on earth for bargain-hunters.
Situated at the end of buzzy Bermondsey Street, this market is a south London institution. Every Friday, locals with magpie eyes flock here to trawl around 200 stalls for bargain china, silver, furniture, glassware and pottery. Not everything here would make it onto ‘Antique’s Roadshow’, but sifting the fab from the tat is part of the fun. In recent years, the market has expanded to include fashion, craft and food stalls, but antiques are still the focus. Just remember to arrive early: trading begins at 6am and most stall-holders will be packing up by lunchtime. When you’re done bargain-hunting, lively Bermondsey has loads of lunch options.
This March, book this great ceramics fair in the diary. This three day London based event is full to the brim with incredible ceramicists.
