Dating back to at least the 1700s, the Greenwich Market sells an eclectic assortment of crafts, quirky hand-made fashion items, and vintage collectables. The Market began on the West Gate of the Royal Naval College and soon spread to the neighbouring areas in the 1800s. Roofs were later built to cover the Market, with the current roof installed in 1908.
Visitors would find that the Market best for finding gifts for loved ones and thrift vintage clothing. Stores in the market have a style very distinct from what you would find in chain clothing stores, sure to satisfy shoppers with a quirky sense of style.
A limited market is available on the weekdays, but visitors should wait for the full weekend market to visit. The full weekend market spills out onto the open space in front of the Cutty Sark and features many more craft stall and food stalls, perfect for a weekend brunch and stroll. Visitors should be reminded to bring enough cash, as free cash machines are scarce in the area.
