IN A NUTSHELL
Located on the site of Lambeth Marsh, first recorded in 1377AD, Lower Marsh Market is one of London’s oldest market streets. Officially used as a market street since the mid-nineteenth Century, today Lower Marsh Market is a bustling South London spot, loved by locals and relatively undiscovered by tourists. Throughout the week from 10am-5pm, the market offers scrumptious street food and more from an array of regular stalls. On Saturdays the market is opened up to a hand-picked selection of artisan traders specialising in high quality fresh produce. It also makes room for a fascinating flea market for experienced traders or indeed anyone who fancies renting a stall.
