The already pretty nice (and pedestrianised) road on which this is held is elevated to almost Richard Curtis-like twee with the presence of the varied and interesting stalls that make up this market. Super expensive across the board though to be honest, especially the fruit and vegetables. Absurdly pricey in fact. Really liked the stall selling old map prints of South London and very much enjoyed the doughnut I bought too.

The arty-farty-crafty weekend markets are a dime a dozen now, and seem to be springing up in every part of London. Stuff they sell is starting to look the same in them all, and once you’ve ‘been-there, done-that’, you probably have little reason to go back anytime soon!

So how delightful it was to discover such a market that is good! Very good in fact! And one I’ll definitely be returning to. Here’s why.

1. The market seems really well conceived, and well managed. This is evidenced in the excellent balance of ‘foodie’ and ‘non-foodie’ stalls, which I estimate would total about 50 or so.
2. There was a really noticeable emphasis on the vintage, and particularly recycling and upcycling: old vinyl records have become fabulous cake stands; pre-loved textiles are now wonderful scarves, quilts and cushions, oilcloth bags, and picnic blankets; vintage mid-century tired furniture items have been given a facelift or a complete overhaul and would look good in any sitting room; and bits and pieces of old silver, waste metals and stones have been crafted into unique and quirky jewellery pieces - brooches, pendants and rings! There’s a great collection of stalls selling vintage clothing, and 20th century collectibles.
3. The market teems with quirky and eclectic craft items: traditional pottery and modernist ceramics, beautiful hand-made greeting cards and stationary items, jewellery items made with fossils, Kenyan baskets, scented candles, delightfully crafted baby and toddler clothing… and so on and so on.
4. For the food lovers, there’s a host of ‘different’ choices to tantalise the taste buds: hot dishes from Ethiopia and Morocco; amazing savoury (and sweet) crepes made for you on the spot; pakoras and bhajis; hand-crafted breads, mouth-watering patisseries, pastries, cakes and tarts (the blueberry and raspberry Pastel da Nata were sumptuous); biltong; beautiful cheeses (with generous samples freely given), including the Bath Soft Cheese (a winner in the World Cheese Awards of 2014); loose teas (including caffeine-free tea); and a marvellous selection of fruit preserves, chutneys, fruit compotes and ketchups! That’s in addition to free fruit and vegetable stalls.
5. The market oozes quality; it has a vibrant and up-market feel to it, and indeed it is. I would think the management are particular about who takes a stall there, and I believe there re some requirements about the goods for sale being ‘local’ (well, to a radius of 100 miles or so).

It was really busy the Sunday I was there - almost crowded. It would be great to see a bit more seating available to those who want to enjoy the foodstuffs purchased, but space probably limits that. The market is held in a long narrow square right at the from entrance to Herne Hill Rail Station - hence very easy to get to. It’s open from 10:00 to 16:00 every Sunday. Even with the crowds, it's wheelchair accessible.

It really is wort the trek. And if you are tossing up between this Sunday market or the Saturday market on nearby North Cross Road in East Dulwich, the Hern Hill Market is the absolute winner!

I’ll be back!

Came to HERNE HILL MARKET & stumbled across this stall. Indonesian food that makes you taste the flavours of the country. Authentic flavours and big portions. You'll get your money's worth that's for sure!

Dear Sandia H Huge thanks for reviewing us and approving of Lemon Grass our weekly Indonesian hot food producer we will surely pass it on to Harry and his team who have been with us since the market started in Herne Hill. Next time you are visiting be sure to try Harry's new Katstu curry dish - a dish that's possibly on par with his fabulously tasty Rendeng !! Best wishes from everyone at CCFM City & Country Farmers' Markets.

Amazing market by Herne Hill train station. There are some wonderful food stands covering everything you can imagine. I tried everything from tartiflette, sausage rolls, Korean noodles, savoury pancakes and a burger- all stunning. Very friendly vendors. Can't wait to go back next weekend!

While very small - it's not going to take long to wander through - the Sunday market outside Herne Hill station has a number of good quality food stalls, as well as the inevitable arts and crafts and other miscellaneous stalls. There's a lot of tasty treats to try, so go hungry! Despite being clustered around one, fairly short, pedestrian street, it has a lively buzz and a Continental vibe (no doubt helped by the babble of European accents).

Nice market and nice stalls but they leave the street looking extremely disgusting with litter afterwards - this has to be addressed.

Herne Hill is just a special place, but the variety of stalls, quality of food, the sprawling Brockwell park across, and dotted about boutique shops and great pubs make this a one stop shop for a weekend.
