One of south London's busiest, the Deptford market has been in Deptford High Street for centuries. London's first railway, from London to Greenwich was built through Deptford in 1836. Christopher Marlowe, the playwright was murdered nearby.
Many of the stalls have passed from one generation to the other.

The market takes place every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, from around 7am until 4pm, in Deptford High Street, Douglas Way and the junction with Giffin Street. To see the whole range of stalls it is best to visit before midday as some stallholders pack up early.
There is a broad mix of stalls selling items from fresh fish, foods, groceries, to antiques, second hand clothes and collectibles. Many of the stalls sell ethnic goods, including African, Indian and Chinese foodstuff.
