Albion Street, Rotherhithe, SE16 7HZ
March 17th 10am-6pm
It might seem strange that a bi-annual Scandinavian Market is held in a quiet back street of Rotherhithe, but the area has a long association with the Scandinavian community who settled here having worked at nearby Surrey Quays. Albion Street is still the home to both the Finnish and Norwegian Churches who run the market.
Albion Street is a quiet back street of Rotherhithe, but this Saturday it will be transformed into a celebration of all things Scandi with about 30 stalls offering delicious scandi food, handmade crafts and arts, traditional homewares and even a few second-hand stalls. The event is a shadow of the fabulous Christmas market which extends over three days in November, but it's a lot of fun with live bands and an enormous Moomin on hand to spread the love.
