The Myatt’s Field south and Loughborough Junction areas have been identified as food deserts due to the lack of access to good quality, nutritious food. To help combat this, the new market is bringing fantastic growers and producers from south London and beyond to the Grade II listed, community-run park.

The first market kicked off on 20 May and the organisers have amassed an impressive selection of independent growers, producers and cooks. Eeach Sunday from 10am to 2pm, expect to find the likes of:

The market isn’t stopping at food. There’s an eco-cleaning products refill station, handmade non-toxic beauty products stall, face painting and drawing classes, Lambeth-based craft producers, mask making as well as performances from acoustic acts and local choirs on the bandstand. The Little Cat Café in the park will also be providing coffee, ice cream and other refreshments all day.
