Saturday Morning Spa Terminus Food Market

Spa Terminus is a splendid food market, and if you live in Bermondsey or near Tower Bridge, you may have heard about it. Located inside railway arches dating back to the 1800s, you’ll find locals buying their organic vegetables, orchard fruit, artisan cheese, biodynamic wine, and Monmouth coffee beans. Many food and drink businesses make or stock products here, which they sell to trade suppliers during the week. On Fridays and Saturdays, from about 8.30 am until 2.30 pm, they open their doors to the public. It’s a short walk from Maltby Street Food Market and is worth exploring if you’re looking for a farmer’s market in SE16 or Bermondsey Food Market.

Look Out For The Signage To Food Suppliers

The suppliers are dotted around, so could you keep your eyes open for signage? Ensure you visit Dockley Road Industrial Estate, Discovery Business Park, Apollo Business Park, Spa Business Park and Voyager Business Park. For more information, see the Spa Terminus Website; clicking the company name will give you the address. Opening times on Saturday are approximately 8.30-2.30 but do vary. I would say go about 9.30 and don’t go too late as some may close at 2 pm. Enjoy your foodie fest!
