Brixton Market Tours

Brixton Market
Brixton Market is comprised of three covered market arcades called Brixton Village, Market Row, and Reliance Arcade. The area is at the heart of Brixton’s multicultural food scene. Influenced by the waves of immigrants to the area from the West Indies starting after WWII, the markets reflect the Brixton’s strong Afro-Caribbean history and culture. A commerce hub for the city, they’ve flourished as a cultural center and dining destination for people all over London.

The Basics
With well over 100 independent traders, cafes, and restaurants, the bustling markets are spread out over a warren of indoor stalls, shops, and cafes serving all manner of culinary treats hailing from all over the world, with everything from gourmet burgers to Caribbean cuisine. A variety of tradespeople sell everything from hand-woven baskets to wooden spoons, jewelry, and vintage clothing in Market Row. The arcades are included on a number of private walking, culinary, and heritage tours of the area.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The markets are open everyday from 8am to 11:30pm (with the exception of a 6pm closing time on Mondays).
  • There are weekly rotating themed markets on Saturdays, and a farmer’s market on Sundays.
  • On Fridays the markets offer street food, crafts and vintage finds.

How to Get There
The markets are easily reached by tube, bus and train. Turn right out of Brixton tube station, then take the first right down Atlantic Road. The Brixton Station Road overground stop exits almost directly into the market. A number of buses also service the market. There are bike racks in the courtyard of Brixton Village and a parking lot on Brixton Station Road.

When to Get There
Brixton Market arcades are open year-round, seven days a week. The markets are covered, so you can visit in bad weather, and they offer different goods depending on the season. 

Saturday Markets
The first Saturday of the month brings the “bread and flea” market selling freshly baked cakes and antiques. On the second Saturday, the makers market offers handmade crafts and art. The third Saturday is the retro and vintage market, with racks of clothes and shoes. The fourth (and fifth) Saturdays see all of the traders reconvene for the Brix Mix market. And on Sundays it’s the farmer’s turn, selling organic veggies, local honey, artisan chocolate, cheese, and more.
