Many stalls, cafes and local independent shops. Even cycle stalls repair/advice area. Herne Hill station doorstep, Brockwell Park & Lido across the road, Dulwich Village a short walk away and Brixton just a quick bus ride too. Family fun.

About 50 stalls, excellent produce, foods, clothing, crafts, jewellery etc.
Jan 2020
We’re new to this area but have discovered what an imaginatively evolved place it is, as well as being very well connected and accessible. The area around the junction by the Half Moon and the unsquare shaped square outside the entrance to the station etc are a perfect site for a regular local market with this many and range of stalls together with its bustling and enthusiastic supporters. If you mind yourself down or near here on a Sunday I recommend you wander through here and challenge you not to be distracted or seduced by what is on the usually 50 odd stalls.

A pleasure

It’s always an interesting place to visit as there is a good mix of stalls from antiques, to craft, coffee & food. Crowded but not overwhelming & you could easily while away a few hours. Easy walk from Brixton (via Brockwell Park) or hop on a bus, it really is worth it.

A cut above your average market

We visited on a Sunday morning and what a joy it was. Lots of local crafts and artisan foods with friendly and attentive market traders. The food that we bought was delicious and home made. Well worth a visit followed by a walk round Brockwell Park

Small but perfectly form.

In a sunny 😎 Sunday with time in your hand and need to get some essentials and little indulgence, I will recommend to give this market a go. We went pass in the bus 🚎 saw it and jump out. Just as well we find some bargain in the antique stalls, friendly people, plenty of space to walk and a change for your normal high street shops.

They have stall with; bread, cheese, coffee, tea, flowers and plants and much more. Most of the local shops bars, pubs and restaurants are open or you can opt for a food stall.

JUST LOVE THE VIBE
Jun 2018 • Couples
We live in South Africa so when visiting our Daughter and family (they live in Herne Hill), it is a must to stroll down to the market. Just love everything about it. We always end up buying our lunch from the many food stalls that have delicious things on offer. Clothing stands and bric a brac stands also interesting. If the weather is great then nothing better to stroll around the Herne Hill Market, as we will do on our next visit to London.

To Market To Market....
Jun 2018 • Solo
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!

What A Great Market with Superb food, clothes, furniture and jewellery!
Apr 2018 • Solo
This is what makes London so special. Travelling a lot, I get to meet so many wonderful people and cultures and get to taste such wonderful food. Honestly, there is little to beat the best of what London has to offer at its eclectic and ‘cool vibe’ best. This market is up there. A Sunday (only) market crammed full of things to buy and eat from almost every continent. Stalls sell records, retro chic furniture, clothing, cosmetics, contemporary hand made jewellery, crockery, every type of artisan food you can imagine and more! The market is open from 11am to 4pm every Sunday and well worth a lazy afternoon stroll or lunch f you’re in the area or within 30mins travel. They even conveniently positioning bed Herne Hill rail station in the middle of the market! How helpful is that!! Enjoy!!!

Great Place to stock up for the week with fruit and vegetables.
Nov 2017 • Couples
We visit most Sundays and enjoy such a selection of stalls selling all types of goodies.
The vegetables and produce outlets are a must for us.However,coffees,chocolates and sometimes take away meals cannot be avoided.
Crafts will be a welcome buy coming up to Christmas.
We are lucky to have such a great market not too far from home.
