Deptford High St
Hackney Flea Market
‘A bustling fair of Vintage clothes, home ware and handmade goods from independent creatives, it’s a monthly event not to be missed’ – this has been recorded as being said by one particular visitor. Starting as a pop-up event in 2013, this has now turned into a monthly weekend market – listen to the local DJ or hear the sounds of rare and obscure musical treasures and soak up the atmosphere.
