Greenwich Market

Greenwich Market in Greenwich, south east London dates back to 1700 when the market was located at the Royal Hospital (Old Royal Naval College).

Greenwich Market has been at its present location since the first half of the nineteenth century.

Greenwich Market has a wide range of stalls, with arts, crafts, jewellery, prints and unusual collectibles hard to find anywhere else in London.

At weekends, when people flock to see the Cutty Sark and the Greenwich Meridian, many varied street food stalls offer a cosmopolitan mix of snacks and world cuisines including vegan and vegetarian options.
