Catford Broadway Market

Lewisham Council writes:

Catford Broadway is due to host a new monthly Sunday market from Sunday 1 July.

The new market will see producers selling cakes, cheeses and chutneys alongside street food stalls offering everything from homemade sausages to quesadillas. As well as food there will be antiques, arts, crafts and flowers.

Running on the first Sunday of each month from 10am–5pm, the market embraces Lewisham’s creativity, diversity and entrepreneurship.

Louise Constantino of Louise Queen of Tarts said: “I had a brilliant day during local markets fortnight in April. It was my first time trading so I didn't really know what to expect but I was sold out by 2pm. It was a fantastic experience for me.”

Local people can also have their say on the proposed changes to Catford Broadway, which are being jointly funded by Lewisham Council and the Mayor of London’s Outer London Fund, which is helping to increase the vibrancy and growth of high street places across London.

If you produce, grow or make your own products and would like to apply for a stall then contact the markets team on 020 8314 2050, email catfordbroadway@lewisham.gov.uk or visit street markets to download an application form.

Excellent. Never seen a market I didn't like, good move from the council.

Like some of the local Farmer's Markets once a month is not regular enough to get any impetus or a decent following. The Brockley Market has shown you need a regular weekly event to be successful.....IMHO

Only wish it was bigger as thought it was excellent. I might have been quite early so wasn't all out yet.

We are taking part in the market today selling a range of South African inspired artisan foods.

Have been twice now. Not more than about 5 stalls each time but they were all great. Lovely lovely cake stalls and home made quiches, jams, breads etc. Pricing and quality is definitely much more high end than the catford shops so a bit of a shock to be asked to pay top (over?) price for a slice of cake/toffee apple. Still, for those desperate for quality products in this location it's a welcome addition.
