History

One of south London's busiest, the Deptford market has been in Deptford High Street for centuries. London's first railway, from London to Greenwich was built through Deptford in 1836. Christopher Marlowe, the playwright was murdered nearby.

Many of the stalls have passed from one generation to the other.

Economy

A collection of new and used goods, with a prominence of food stalls spread out on the side streets and pavements, this vibrant market is filled with a diverse range of stallholders.[1]

Details

The market takes place every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, from around 7am until 4pm, in Deptford High Street, Douglas Way and the junction with Giffin Street. To see the whole range of stalls it is best to visit before midday as some stallholders pack up early.

 The range of items for sale range from fresh fish, foods, groceries, to antigues, second hand clothes and collectibles. There are even some ethnic shops where you can buy African, Indian and Chinese foodstuff.
 It benefits in having a Docklands Light Railway Station and a British Rail Station close by.
