Maltby Street Market Ropewalk Bermondsey

Visit Maltby Street Market at Ropewalk in Bermondsey on Saturday and Sunday. Set along a pedestrianised road under Victorian railway arches, it’s an adorable market selling street food and other delicious delights. You’ll also find a selection of businesses selling fruit and veg, craft beer, baked goods and more. Maltby Street Market is a must for anyone looking for things to do in London at the weekend or street food markets in London SE1. Since moving to the area, we often pop to this market for lunch. I first wrote this article in October 2016, the market has changed a lot, so I’ve taken new pictures and have updated the content.
