Located in old workshops behind Sainsbury’s, this little market is a great place to rummage for antiques, collectables and good old fashioned junk. The old workshops that have become home to the market are a little chaotic, but that’s part of its charm. Among the interesting things to be found here are all kinds of discarded toys and figurines, one trader dealing in books and DVDs and on the first floor there is a unit dedicated to vintage clothing. There are also a few more selective 20th century vintage specialists with some genuinely collectable furniture at a reasonable price.
This little market is a good place to while away an hour and you’re sure to emerge with something interesting to treasure from a Penguin paperback to a genuine 1960s coffee table. The market is best visited on a Saturday when the outside courtyards are the site for the wonderful Crystal Palace Food Market.
