  • Visitor Information

East Street MarketThis venerable street market has been running for over 150 years - it officially started in 1880. Charlie Chaplin was a regular visitor to East Street Market during his youth in South London, and it's a beautiful scene which is just as suitable to a relaxing browse as to serious bargain hunting. East Street Market comes to life on Sundays when over 250 stalls cram the narrow street selling all manner of goods, from fresh fruit and vegetables to African clothes and materials. A much smaller market specialising in plants and flowers runs all week except Monday.
