From this Sunday, 4th September, Camberwell will have a new weekly market. It will happen from 10am to 4pm in the new market area on the Green, and focus on street food, arts and crafts (presumably to not compete with the Saturday farmer’s market).
Can’t find full details of the opening week’s line-up, but confirmed food stalls are: Rainbo (Asian salads and gyoza dumplings); Return of the Mac (macaroni cheese); Kaki Lima (Indonesian street food); and Pomodoro e Basilico (vegan Italian). Some of these were at Camberwell Fair last weekend, so if you enjoyed the food there, there’s no reason you shouldn’t here.
For the launch of the market there’ll be a specially-made beer called Saint Giles — no word on who it was made by, or how many will be available, but I’m keen to try it out.
In an interview with the South London Press, market organiser Will Herman said:
What we’re trying to do is establish a new haven for foodies and art lovers south of the river, showcasing the best of what is local.
And while the word ‘foodies’ might make me grind my teeth, it will be nice to have a new option in the area. I only wish there was some way we could combine the two weekend markets to have something a little bigger with perhaps an increased chance of success for both.
