Brixton Makers Market in Station Rd, Oct 8th, Nov 12th, Dec 10th & 24th
Brixton Maker's Market (formerly Make it, Grow it, Sell it) is now every 2nd Sat in the month, in Station Road beside the Brixton Recreation Centre.
So see you there on Oct 8th, Nov 12th or Dec 10th - and for people who are still running about desperately looking for presents on Christmas Eve, there is a special Christmas Market on Dec 24th :)
In case it isn't clear in the name, Brixton Makers Market is for people to sell and buy products made or grown locally.
For buyers, wander a few yards from the covered markets to see lots of great local produce, hear some live music & maybe find some unique gifts. Come & help us generate a happy happening atmosphere in Station Road!
For makers/growers it's a great opportunity to try out having a real-world stall - the organisers are lovely & have made it as easy as possible for us, they set up the stalls and tables and clear them away & it's only £20 for a big stall with table & canopy, I recommend sharing it with a friend if your items aren't large, it is more fun and a lot easier to take breaks.
All you need is public liability insurance, stock, change & wrapping for people's purchases. The first event was Sept 10th and most of the stallholders really enjoyed it and have signed up for the next one.
This Sat (8thOct) is your next opportunity to come and check it out :)
Hey Maya thanks for the lovely comments :)
I think you've covered every thing there
We're now taking bookings for the next Makers Market on Saturday 12th November (though only a few spots remain) 10th December and our Christmas Makers Market special on the 24th which is going to be gorgeous.
If there's any Retro & Vintage lovers, the Brixton Retro & Vintage Market will commence on Saturday 19th November and were currently taking applications
The Brixton Flea Market commences on Saturday 5th of November. If you have any old goods you'd love to sell on then this would be a great market for you.
And our Brixton Friday Food starts on Friday 4th November and will run every Friday. We're currently looking for locals who make their own produce (unfortunately we can't take on anymore cake makers), such as a jam/chutney maker.
