The Clapham area is now completely spoilt for choice when it comes to markets. From posh nosh to fresh flowers, we Clappers have it all. Given the number of chain supermarkets and restaurants in the area, it’s no wonder the Clapham markets are increasingly popular with local residents. We want choice dammit! With three markets in the direct vicinity and others close by, there really is no excuse to shop local and benefit from better quality.
The newest market in town, now found by the cinema on the recently spruced up Venn Street by Clapham Common tube. Open every Saturday from 10am – 4pm, this market is a great pit stop for a quick lunch plus some tasty morsels for the evening’s dinner.
One of the most successful and longest running markets in the area, located in the yummy mummy valley of Northcote Road. It’s open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, selling everything from fresh fish to freshly baked pizza to go. Lots of flowers and cupcakes too. Of course, there are plenty of little cafes, restaurants and the odd antique shop to keep you entertained too.
Tucked away just off of the South end of Abbeville Road is this wonderful local treasure selling only farm grown produce. Open every Sunday from 10am – 2pm, they sell a small but perfectly formed selection of meats, baked goods, cheese and other unique products for a reasonable price. Don’t miss out on this one.
Next to the main Sainsbury’s on Clapham High Street is a recently renovated and rather snazzy glass fronted church. On the first Saturday of every month, from 9.30am – 6.30pm, the church plays host to a mini market featuring local artwork to buy and lots of cakes and other crafts. Lots of fun and the cake is awesome.
