From fine foods to artisan crafts, Wimbledon’s markets are definitely worth a look.
Weekends were made for markets. Browsing stalls for fresh produce, crafts or vintage wear makes a great day out and London is famed for its amazing range – selling everything from flowers to fruit and antiques to street food in neighbourhoods across the capital.
Wimbledon is no exception. The well-established farmers market at Wimbledon Park has been joined by two new kids on the block – in Wimbledon Village and Southfields. Plus, there’s the eclectic monthly craft, clothing and food market in Wimbledon town centre’s Piazza.
Read on for all you need to know about what’s in store at Wimbledon’s markets:
The weekly Wimbledon Park Farmers Market has been going strong for almost two decades. Based in the lovely grounds of Wimbledon Park primary school, off Durnsford Road, the market is a two-times Time Out award winner.
It brings together a superb range of produce, with friendly and knowledgeable stallholders. Examples include Grange Nurseries seasonal cut flowers, Galileo Farm for organic meat and poultry, milk and cheese from Ellie’s dairy, plus a huge range of fruit and vegetables from Perry Court Farm, Wild Country Organics, Chegworth Valley and Ted’s Veg. There’s also fresh fish and shellfish, a variety of cheeses, Ethiopian coffee and Italian pasta sauces.
Bring the family and decamp to next-door Durnsford Rec after your shop. The market takes place each Saturday from 9am to 1pm – stalls vary from week to week.
This new Sunday farmers market is held every week between 10am and 2pm in the surgery car park, 35A High Street (next to our premises). With plenty of farm fresh produce including veg, meat, pies, fresh fish, cakes, artisan bread, fruit, juices and coffee, it’s also a great place to grab a picnic before heading to the common.
Southfields now has a farmers market too, every Saturday from 10am to 2pm at St Michael’s School, SW18. Pop by for fresh fish, cakes, baked artisan bread, fruit, juices and more from sellers including The Parsons Nose farm sausages and pies, Flour Power artisan breads and Heritage Cheese.
Wimbledon’s buzzy town centre market in the Piazza is held during the first weekend of every month. Additional markets take place every weekend in the run up to Christmas.
Stalls vary from week to week but include beautiful handmade products, delicious world foods, clothes, accessories, art and crafts – and it’s single-use plastic free.
The market is organised by Love Wimbledon, the town’s business improvement district (BID) a business-led not-for-profit set up to improve the town centre.
Right by the River Wandle, Merton Abbey Mills is a collection of shops, eateries and workshops, housed in the former Liberty silk-printing works. There’s been a weekend market here for 30 years, specialising in arts and crafts, pottery, jewellery, books, furnishings and crafts.
