London Borough of Croydon

Croydon Town Centre is home to Surrey Street Market, one of the oldest known streets markets in Britain, which has been trading since 1276. By popular demand and following the completion of a £1.1 million refurbishment, Surrey Street’s popular Sunday market is back and is hosting a new programme of weekly events alongside its regular market offer.

The event ine-up includes interactive street theatre, an entrepreneurs market, outdoor musical entertainment and Christmas-themed events for when the festivities draw near. Events are still to be added to the programme, but to see what has been confirmed so far see below. Similarly to last year, the Sunday market will run 10.30am to 5pm, although event times may differ.

The Sunday market seeks to provide Sunday shoppers with an alternative range of goods and artisan foods. If you are a small startup, social enterprise or locally based producer and are interested in having a stall on Surrey Street, please contact the market inspector Fiona.woodcock@croydon.gov.uk to receive a trading guide and application pack.

Surrey Street market is a great place to visit, why not come and discover Surrey Street for yourself.
