Where to find 5 of the best Craft Fairs in London

On Pedddle, of course! London hosts numerous craft fairs throughout the year, showcasing a diverse range of artisanal creations. Here are a few notable ones:

1. Duck Pond Markets

Duck Pond is synonymous with sustainability; not only in terms of green and eco businesses, but by providing a range of locally-sourced and ethical goods from a range of stallholders, helping our planet to last for ours and our childrens’ lifetimes and way way way beyond!

You can be sure that everything you buy at Duck Pond Market comes from ‘a good place’, and their range of great venues make each of their markets well worth a visit.

Duck Pond Markets combine the magic of a festival with interesting arts, crafts and homewares, in beautiful settings. The atmosphere they create is worth visiting London for – even if you’re not a London resident!

2. Crafty Fox Market

Crafty Fox is a well-established market, taking place at iconic sites like Kings Cross.

Not only do they support emerging designers, makers and artists with opportunities to showcase and sell their work, but their range of venues in easily-accessed London sites make their markets simple to visit and simple to shop from.

3. Folk & Bespoke

Folk & Bespoke markets run all over Essex, Hertfordshire, Surrey, Sussex and Greater London.

Formed from founder Katy’s desire to provide a regular place for quality bespoke artists and brands to display and sell their work, whilst not costing them a fortune to do so, these markets offer something different at each market, whilst maintaining their handmade, sustainable, small business ethics.

Folk and Bespoke support artisans by providing them with opportunities for exposure at their various events, as well as their website, creating a strong community that serves both creatives and locals alike.

4. Black Culture Market

Black Culture Market supports emerging entrepreneurs and new businesses of African and Caribbean descent, providing opportunities to showcase and sell their products in the heart of London and beyond.

Their curated events are open for anyone to visit, taking place in friendly venues where you can find a wide range of fantastic goods.

5. Real Food markets

Real Food Festivals have been running food markets, festivals and events since 2008, which The Guardian have referred to as “one of the biggest and most interesting dates in the British food calendar”.

Their wide range of iconic London venues has gone from Earls Court Exhibition Centre to the Southbank Centre, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park to Regent Street, Battersea Power Station, Greenwich Peninsula, Islington and King’s Cross.

Championing and celebrating the very best food producers and craft businesses out there, you can find a great selection of sustainable and ethical products from brilliant local traders.
