Situated in the heart of the City of London, Leadenhall Market is usually closed at the weekends, but for a couple of months, it will be open as a craft fair marketplace.

The weekend series will see the grand Victorian marketplace return to its roots as a trading ground, but instead of selling meat, poultry and game, stalls will be filled with furniture, fashion and crafts.

A number of the market’s restaurants, cafes and bars will also be open, serving food and drink.

Judy’s Vintage Furniture & Flea will kick off the new venture, selling furniture from the mid-century onwards and fashion from the twenties to the noughties. Complementing old with new, Leadenhall will also welcome SoLo Craft Fair, which will offer hand-crafted art, jewellery, home accessories, children’s toys, and more from a pool of carefully selected, talented crafters.

The market will be open from 12pm to 5pm on the following dates:

  • Sunday 26th May – Judy’s
  • Saturday 8th June – SoLo
  • Sunday 30th June – Judy’s
  • Saturday 13th July – SoLo
  • Sunday 28th July – Judy’s
  • Saturday 10th August – SoLo
  • Sunday 25th August – Judy’s
  • Saturday 14th September – SoLo

The market is a short walk from Liverpool Street and Fenchurch Street stations and Bank tube station.

You can either look at it as a chance to shop at the market on a day it’s usually closed or curse because you can’t get those Instagram-friendly empty marketplace photos for a few weeks.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.
