The people who do the market on Saturdays are a really cool bunch. There are 2 veg stalls, rositta who does the best organic/allergy friendly food you could wish for and its all home made, and Fabien who sells meat from her own farm, and it is really good quality. It's flanked by restaurants and hej coffee house.

Who on earth goes to this little market at 4 am? This is the time given in all the ads we have seen. We have been to this market last year and wanted to go again. Don't bother to go before 8 am or even later as the sellers are still unpacking. The market itself is about 15 tables and... More

I think it's open only on Friday or at least Fridays is the best day to go. It's a small market with 15 tables with beautiful antiques to bargain. It's an alternate to big markets if you're not much a fan of big crowded places. As a hint go to lunch at Zucca on Bermondsey Street, 50 meters walking (please... More

Its a very small antique market occupying a small plaza. It had about 25 to 30 tables selling different items form real antiques, silverware and brass to not antiques and junk. Go there with an open mind and surely you will find something to bring home. The idea is to bargain without being offensive as everyone seems to be in... More

An overwhelmingly dingy feel to the place and most of the stalls. Like a car boot sale but without the charm! Most stall holders were friendly enough but if I tell you the best aspect was the smell of the bacon sarnies and quality of the coffee you'll get the idea. Do not go out of your way for this...

This market is really not worth the bother. Bermondsey Square was modernised and enveloped in big modern buildings a few years ago and now is a bland square - into which 10-15 stall open early on a Friday morning - selling overpriced junk

Bustling and friendly with a number of quirky shops, wine bars, pubs and and restaurants. A resurgent part of LOndon thats well worth a visit.

Maybe ive been one of the unlucky ones. I have been to this antiques market in Bermondsey square twice now and can't seem to find value in any of the items I like. What's more, its not really a market when its literally empty at times. Have decided to go back in a few months to see if the offering... More

This is the market where antiques dealers go to buy their merchandise. Get up early and hail a cab and visit this market if you love antique flea markets.

I actually visited this market back in the seventies when it took place on what I assumed was a large bomb site. It was recommended you got there before six otherwise the bargains would be gone and by mid-day all the traders would be gone. Bit more gentile now and a real pleasure to walk round a relatively small square... More

Staying in Southwark

Neighborhood Profile
Southwark
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighborhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
