Christmas has come to Bermondsey’s Blue Market with a festive-themed food and crafts market.
The historic Bermondsey marketplace will see traders selling their Christmas wares up until Christmas eve.
Stalls include businesses selling traditional baked goods, artisanal gifts for loved ones and clothes for women and children.
“We’re all about promoting what Bermondsey has to offer, hosting events for local people and those from further afield, whilst providing a platform for our excellent local craftspeople, food producers and hot food vendors to grow their businesses,” said Make it Blue, the organisation behind the market days.
The food and crafts market is running on the 12th, 19th, 21st, 22nd, 23rd & 24th of December. The stalls will be open from 10am to 4pm.
It comes amid a bid to regenerate the marketplace.
The market was last year awarded a £2.3m regeneration grant from the Mayor’s office to “turn Bermondsey’s historic town centre and street market into a thriving area, building on The Blue’s identity as the ‘Larder of London.’”
Work is expected to begin early next year.
