The secret is out, from September 25th Catford Food Market is moving to a new location!
You might not know this, but this is not the first time we have moved the location of the market. In September 2019, we relocated from our original spot Catford Broadway to the Catford Shopping Centre as part of wider plans that set out to animate and engage different areas in Catford town centre. Our upcoming move reflects this drive to revive our local area and highlight lesser-known spots around town by creating opportunity and engaging those within the community!
Where are we moving?
From the 25th of September 2022, you’ll find us popping up on Adenmore Road, in between Catford and Catford Bridge train stations . This new location is just 2 minutes and approximately 210 steps, from Catford Broadway, so don’t worry, it won't add much to your travel time!
Why are we moving?
Overlooking the River Ravensbourne, our new-look, riverside market will allow us to share the vibrancy and spirit of Catford Food Market with a broader cross-section of the community and animate different areas in the town centre.
Accessibility is important to us, and situated in between two stations, our new location can be reached with greater ease. Taking just 16 minutes from London Bridge, we expect an increase in customers, both local and those visiting the area.
Our new location also provides increased opportunities for pop-up events run in conjunction with the market throughout the year - watch this space for some of our exciting new projects!
What else is changing?
Catford Food Market, while continuing to celebrate the best of Catford but we will also be welcoming some of the most creative and innovative food and drinks vendors from all over London.
What is staying the same?
Catford Food Market will still be held on the last Sunday of the month and it will remain free to attend! Much like Catford Broadway, our new location also has step free pavement access.
Most importantly however, Catford Food Market will continue to be a welcoming, vibrant spot to meet up with friends and family and revel in the community spirit. Our mission remains focused on reducing food mileage, promoting sustainability and supporting local businesses.
