Deptford Market – London

Every weekend, many street food markets are invading the streets of South East London. I have talked about Brockley Market and Model Market, and today we are heading toward the Thames to the ‘up-and-coming’ neighbourhood of Deptford.

Deptford shows all the signs of gentrification, quirky cafes, nice independent restaurant while remaining an affordable area to live in by London standards. You won’t find any tourist there, only locals looking for some tasty treats on Saturday afternoon.

Walk along Deptford High Street where you will find the daily shopping market (fruits, vegetables, some questionable decorative items) and follow the crowd until you reach Deptford Market Yard.

The area has been nicely refurbished to make the most of the train tracks’ arches, transforming them into trendy shops and restaurants.

On the main square, you will find some food options as well, so I made a little selection of our favourite places to help you plan your Saturday outing.

We usually grab food first and our favourites include Mama’s Jerk for some tasty chicken.

The Cheese Truck is also amazing! Nothing more satisfying than a grilled cheese sandwich with a layer of onion jam. Drooling as I am writing this.

And if you fancy a British classic with a twist, the Muffin Man is a great option. You will be served slow-cooked pork or pulled duck on a good old English muffin. It is surprising, tasty and very filling!

We usually end our visit with a drink either at Little Nan’s. It is a very quirky cocktail bar with dated and funky decor your very cool psychedelic aunt would have rocked in her house in the seventies.

We also love the Taproom SE8, a great place for any beer lover who wants to try something new. We usually grab our drinks and find a sit outside in the sun and chat our lives away while sipping on craft beers.

End your visit with a bit of shopping! I always find it difficult to resist the beautiful English Flowerhouse and Forest.
