Streatham Green market
The new street market - officially Streatham Green Artisans' Market - will take place next to Streatham Green on the corner of Babington Road and Mitcham Lane by the Manor Arms. It will launch with a ‘Christmas market’ on Sunday 16th December, 10am – 3pm.
The artisan market looks as if it will be a kind of farmers market meets crafts market, featuring farm produce, fine foods and local crafts, based on Abbeville Farmer's market in Clapham, but with a more 'Streatham' feel.
The timing couldn't be better with the forced closure of Streatham Vale Farmer's market due to the Greyhound Lane Bridge closure.
A website is apparently in the process of being constructed. There will also be a twitter feed: @StreathamArty and a Facebook page: www.facebook.com/StreathamGreenMarket (NB These have not been set up at the time of writing!)
More information is available by emailing Joel Northcott: abbevillefarmers (at) yahoo.co.uk
