THIS IS NOT THE HIGH STREET. THIS IS THE ALTERNATIVE.
Known as London’s most diverse and vibrant market, Brixton Village sits at the heart of Brixton town centre and consists of Market Row and Granville Arcade.
Brixton Village is the dynamic home of food, goods and community with more than 100 independent vendors, representing over 50 nationalities. This diversity is reflected in the wide range of products and services on offer, from Caribbean street food to vintage clothing, handmade jewellery, Indian kimonos and African fabrics. Walking through the market, you’ll hear a cacophony of languages and see a kaleidoscope of colours, all blending together to create an electrifying and welcoming atmosphere with a palpable energy and an uncanny entrepreneurial spirit. Traders include restaurants and bars, food & green grocers, and retail ranging from fashion, to interior and lifestyle, records, jewellery, religious artefacts and more. A delight for the senses – you will always find something new to see, taste and discover.
Everything that happens in the market is significantly shaped by its community and Afro-Caribbean heritage. A stroll around the Village is a multi-sensory experience. Life lived to a different rhythm. A place that is bold, curious and ambitious.
Food is a major draw to Brixton Village, and the market is renowned for its wide range of international cuisine, including traditional Jamaican seafood, Mexican street food, Ethiopian injera and Japanese pancakes.
THE TRADITIONAL TRADERS
Brixton’s food scene isn’t just about restaurants – it was built on our long standing fruit and green grocers, fishmongers and bakeries, known as the traditional traders.
These small, independent shops offer fresh, locally sourced produce, as well as a range of exotic fruits and vegetables that you won’t find in your average supermarket.
THE BAR SCENE
There’s also a dynamic bar scene – choose between tropical rooftop drinks, cocktails served from a pink camper van or authentic German craft beer. In the Courtyard there’s a new rotating bar in residence each season.
GOODS CRAFTED BY LOCALS
What’s more, Brixton Village is an exciting place to shop for unique and handmade goods. The market is home to a range of independent boutiques, selling everything from vintage clothing to artisanal pottery. You’ll find one-of-a-kind items, made with care and attention to detail by local craftspeople. Whether you’re looking for a statement piece for your home, a bargain or a unique gift for a loved one, Brixton Village has something for you.
Brixton Village is a cultural hub, hosting a range of inclusive events and performances throughout the year. From live music and spoken word, to art exhibitions and pop-up markets, creativity is a big part of the market’s identity.
