Brixton Flea Market, Saturdays on Brixton Station Road, SW9

The Brixton Flea market takes place on the first Saturday of every month, right in the heart of Brixton.

Located on Brixton Station Road (a very short walk from Brixton tube), the market serves up the usual flea market fare of bric-a-brac, furniture, food, clothes, jewellery, games and more.

In 1910, Brixton Station Road hosted Marks and Spencer’s original Penny Bazaar, while Michael Caine was filmed for ‘Alfie’ walking down the market in 1966.
