The Great Fete, Alexandra Palace:
On Saturday 17th August, the Great Fete takes place with the same line up for food at StrEATLife (think craft beer and yummy food trucks) but with music, cinema screenings (including Peppa Pig!), ice skating, a silent disco, a playzone for under 5’s and so much more this will be a great day out for all the family. Starts at midday until 10pm and free entry it’s definitely worth a visit. Recommended to go by public transport but there is also parking on site.
Floating Market, Paddington Central:
From tomorrow until Sunday, barges along the Grand Union Canal open up their door to local vendors and there will be stalls selling food and various handmade items (candles, bags etc). There will also be live music to serenade you as you potter around. Why not make a day of it and walk to the Wallace Collection after? Free admission to the permanent collection and there is currently a Manolo Blahnik exhibition for all you fashionistas which is also free.
Urban Makers x Old Spitalfieds Market, Spitalfields
Championing Indie creatives, Urban Makers are in Spitalfields Market this Saturday from 10am to 6pm. Have a sneak peek on Instagram @urbanmakers_uk at all the beautiful things their vendors are selling! Why not combine with one of the many restaurants in Spitalfields (can you tell we like food?!)…
Beyond Retro Garage Sale, Peckham
For any vintage lovers out there we wanted to give this a mention. It’s being held in the Bussey Building from tomorrow until Sunday with new clothes added each day. Open from 10am – 6pm. Perfect mixed with a picnic lunch in Peckham Rye Park and if you have little ones who need to thrash around, the children’s playground in Peckham Rye is ace. If you fancy lunch out too, we love Pedler, Cafe G, Petitou & Andersons which are all close by (plus baby friendly, of course!)
