Camberwell Market is back for the Summer

After a successful launch last year, Camberwell Market (not to be confused with Camberwell Farmers’ Market) is back on the Green this Sunday, 23rd April, from 11am to 5pm. There’s a mostly new line-up of stalls, including (descriptions provided by the market management):

  • Serious Hashbrowns—a brand-new venture from Daniel Mntungwana of Love Walk Cafe, serving up Gourmet Hashbrowns (from a converted horse box!)
  • Daddy’s Japan Soul Food—scrumptious, authentic Japanese street-food.
  • Meltsmiths—mouthwatering grilled cheese sandwiches.
  • Books-Peckham—beloved and hugely popular book stall returns!
  • Fashion Clicks—playful, fun, quirky, inspired vintage/retro fashion.
  • And many more.

It’s great to have the market back for the summer. I still think, however, it would be good if the Saturday and Sunday markets could merge—it would make for a much better destination. I’ve heard there are regulatory reasons why they’re separate, but I’d still like to see it.

  1. Great post — thanks. I heard that the farmer’s market won’t allow hot food to be sold, hence having two markets — is that true?

    1. The people who run the farmers market are adamant that hot food should not be served! I think they have shot themselves in the foot a bit there.

  2. Camberwell’s looking a bit knackered at the moment, quite a few closed up premises. Anything going to happen ever at the old Peacocks site? Or the old HSBC? Or the other boarded up shops? And what’s happening to the post office?

    1. Old Peacock’s seems to be in development hell. Was long intended to be a gym upstairs, shop units down, but have seen no progress there for a while and in the meantime another gym has opened. Will check the planning register later to see if there are any updates. Ditto HSBC.

      The Post Office is having a refit, finally, although was only supposed to be closed for two weeks in January, so god knows what’s happening there.
