What a feast!

Norwood Feast

New Sunday markets in West Norwood .

Congratulations to all who made the first Norwood “Feast” on Sunday 3rd April  a fantastic success, bringing more than 2,000 people pouring into 4 markets in the centre of West Norwood . Brilliant planning & marketing by local residents working with Space Makers and support from Big Yellow Storage & the council  combined with good weather resulted in a great market day.

Norwood Feast is a set of markets dotted through the town centre on the first Sunday of every month,

There is a second-hand goods/retro clothing market outside Rosebery’s auctioneers on Knight’s Hill, food stalls and children’s entertainment in St Luke’s Church garden, an arts and crafts fair at the end of Chatsworth Way and plants, fruit and vegetables on the corner of York Hill and Norwood Road. Local shops joined in: Beamish and McGlue served hog roast outside their shop on the corner of Lancaster Avenue and Kahvah welcomed a record number of customers in its Norwood Road café. O Girasol was also doing a roaring trade and  B&Q staff reported a large increase in business.

Fringe events included guerrilla gardeners who planted around trees in Norwood Road ,  trampolining for children and  cemetery tours for adults..

Shoppers came from a wide area of south London – Lewisham, Balham and Mitcham as well as Streatham, Dulwich and Crystal Palace. Jane Pickard, local councillor for Knight’s Hill, said: “The markets are  a huge success and I look forward to the next events in May & June.”

The next feast event will be Sunday 1st May 10-4pm. Get there early as some stalls sold out by lunchtime!
