I’ve grown up in South East London, and have fond memories of this market (most notably, of me being dragged away kicking and screaming from the toy stalls – no joke). On a Saturday, this market is usually very busy, with lots of stalls ranging from clothing, craft supplies, flowers, DIY bits and a fairly large area dedicated to second hand goods.
What I look forward to the most when going to the market now is actually the hotdog stand!
Just of the market is a nice area called the Deptford Project, which features a distinctive train cafe! On the side there are stalls for handmade goods.
We’re fizzing with excitement to introduce our latest Kickstarter project: the Lomo’Instant Square. We’re talking about the world’s first analogue camera to produce square-format Instax pictures. It features a 95mm glass lens for super sharp photos, an advanced automatic mode that takes care of exposure, all of Lomography’s signature creative features — and a compact, foldable design. The Lomo’Instant Square has launched on Kickstarter. Come join the fun and back us on Kickstarter now to save up to 35% on the planned retail price, and scoop all sorts of extra treats. Be sure to snatch up the deals before they run out. Be there and be square!
