Pop-up Monthly Markets: SoLo Craft Fair

More details

Putting the market back into Leadenhall, the weekend series will see this grand Victorian marketplace – built on the site of London’s original Roman forum – return to its roots as a trading ground, with new stalls full of unique hand-crafted items on selected Saturdays.

Complementing old with new, come along monthly on Saturdays from June for the SoLo Craft Fair from June. The South London-based organisation run by makers, for makers is famous for its unique hand-crafted art, jewellery, home accessories, children’s toys and more, from a pool of carefully-selected, talented crafters.

SoLo Craft Fair can be found in Leadenhall Market on Saturday 8 June,  13 July, 10 August and 14 September with stalls from 12 - 5pm. Register for free to attend.

A number of restaurants, cafes and bars will also be open to keep you refreshed and replenished.

Heads-up: another monthly pop-up market takes place on Sundays - Judy’s Vintage Furniture & Flea.
