Style bible: Brockley Market cooler than Borough

On Twitter, Fashion Bite lets us know that Brockley Market makes it in to Elle's "five of the best" markets. Elle says:

Over in Lewisham, Brockley Market is like a cooler, mini version of Borough.

Open on Saturday mornings, they certainly draw the crowds with their huge variety of artisanal fare, that fully supports local farmers and traders.

A rejuvenating smoothie from Horse Powered is the perfect way to start the day. It's part of the local art collective Utrophia, and is made using solar-powered blenders on their cycle-pulled cart.

Veggies can rejoice at Mike + Ollie’s stall, who sell wraps stuffed full of foraged and locally sourced ingredients, while for meat-eaters, Mother Flipper are well-known on the burger scene.

Either way, you can’t leave the market without trying a sourdough doughnut from The London Particular. Utterly delicious.

Cooler than Borough Market? Come on! It might be the best local market it has none of the sheer attractive feel, buzz or ambience of Borough Market or such a wide range of stalls.

Or the sense that it's primarily aimed at ripping off tourists in search of what's "cool".

Oh god. This really is getting out of control now.

The only think worse than being talked about is not being talked about.

Brockley market is in addition to lewisham and deptford. Still there, assuming you ever use them. No stop being a trolling chippy dick.

Borough market is the victim of its own success.

It is mental, quite overcrowded at times, and somewhat overpriced.

Brockley market is small and has some nice treats and it is walking distance. It is very relaxed, so I guess that is cool.

There's not much honest fare on Brockley Market, that's the part I struggle with. Ditto the vegetarian food which I just find unethical.

I imagine the journalist of that article lives in...Brockley, But even so, well done Brockley Market team for giving us a high quality market all year round.

Poor you and your struggle. You could always just NOT GO! Tesco sells Pot Noodles - you'll love them.

If you need any more help sorting your arse from your elbow, just ask.

Real Market Trolling. A worthy addition. Welcome.

Let's bring back proper markets!

You go for it Anonymous. I'm sure the nearby markets in Deptford, Lewisham and Catford will be delighted to have you onside.

Perhaps for your next trick you could 'bring back' supermarkets or carparks or something else that hasn't actually gone away.

Why do people complain when nice things are bring said about the area in which they live?

Anonymous said...

So a magazine wrote that something is cool, (which automatically disqualifies it from being cool), who cares! Journalists write any old guff.

Is *this* cool? said...

So, apparently people complain when nice things are said about the area in which they live because they are pretending to be too cool to care.

Are people honour-bound to agree when 'nice' things are said?

Let's bring back real markets!

Troll hunter said...

Either an idiot or a troll. Probably both. Which market has been lost as a result of this new market? It's a net change of +1

Fool.

Shhhh said...

I went to a 'real' market today Anonymous. I can't tell you where it was on here because it's all a bit hush hush. Email me at thicktwat@moronmail.com and I'll tell you.
