5 of The Best Markets in South East London
London is never short of things to do and places to discover. That’s why we couldn’t fit all of our favourite markets into one article, but had to narrow it down to a single area: South East London. Without further ado, here are some of our favourite places to go shopping or have street food.
A classic London favourite, Borough Market sits in the heart of the South Bank, mere moments away from London Bridge. Seeing how busy the market gets on the weekends only proves how delicious and beloved the food and drink there is. Our personal favourite stand is definitely Wokit in Stoney Street.

Flat Iron Square
A relatively new addition to the London market scene, Flat Iron Square is located perfectly, close to the river and right around the corner from Southwark and London Bridge Stations. Combining excellent street food carts with elegant restaurants and vintage clothes vendors with arts and entertainment, the market is an eclectic mix bound to have something for everyone.
No list of London markets would be complete without Greenwich. The oldest market on the list, it’s also set within a World Heritage site. Ideal for shopping or having lunch in historic Greenwich, it’s one of our favourite places to escape the busy Central London life.
Maltby Street Market
One of the trendiest South London locations, Maltby Street is a popular meeting point for young professionals. Celebrating its 7th anniversary this year, the market keeps expanding. One of its latest additions is Ropewalk, a busy market street under the arches that combines shops, street food and bars.
Lower Marsh Market
Among the lesser known London markets, Lower Marsh is located in Waterloo, and it’s definitely underrated. Trust us, we frequent it. The weekday street food stalls are perfect for people working in the area, and if the weather allows it, there are a couple of gardens and parks around the corner to enjoy your meal in.
