  • Visitor Information

A colourful collection of exotic arts and crafts adorn the stalls of this little known gem in Greenwich.

Established in 1849 there are 120 stalls stacked with distinctive goodies. Wooden toys, model ships, trendy clothes, handmade jewellery and wonderful accessories are some of what is on offer. The market is also bristling with young-designers, releasing an infectious energy into the air.

Located by the River Thames and close to well known historical landmarks it really does make a superb day out.
