Top Tips For Camberwell Sunday Market

Camberwell Sunday Market has been operating for over forty years and has grown to almost 400 stalls selling anything and everything. Its success is no mistake and to ensure you get the most out of your visit,  here are some important tips:

Arrive early if you plan on redecorating your home with furniture. There are lots of items on offer but, naturally, the best items get snapped up quickly.

Although there is car parking available, it is limited. Due to the excessive amount of people visiting, it is much easier to arrive via public transport. There are many services available – there are trains to Camberwell Station or trams down to Camberwell Junction.

Plan the timing of your purchases. Items in plentiful supply will have their prices dropped towards the end of trading. If purchasing flowers, make this the last thing you do – no sense in carrying them around a busy market and risk damage, plus they become much cheaper at the end of the day.

Camberwell Sunday Market is a serious vintage hunters delight and it is easy to whittle the hours away digging through all the stores. However,  there is little entertainment for children, so it is worth considering the best way to organize your trip if traveling with your family.

There are no specific stalls selling one specific item, Camberwell Sunday Market is ever-changing and encourages new vendors each week.  It is advisable to search around the whole venue to make sure you see everything that is on offer.
