Event Details

On Saturday 8th December, Deptford Market Yard’s weekly market, Deptford Bites, will be hosting a Christmas special, Deptford Bites at Christmas. Featuring a festive Maker’s Market with interactive craft workshops, an expanded line-up of street food and produce market traders, as well as Christmas menu specials and discounts from the Market Yard’s eclectic range of independent shops and restaurants.

Deptford Bites at Christmas will expand on the street food and produce offering usually available at the Yard’s weekly Saturday market run by Eat Me Drink Me. From hearty Indonesian dishes from Kaki Lima and The Toasty Badger’s ultimate cheese toasties to vegan hotdogs and rösti potatoes by the Nooch and chicken and waffle cones by Matilda’s Waffle Boutique, there will be plenty to tempt the tastebuds. Sweet tooth? Dig into one of Crepe Kings’ Smores crepes with toasted marshmallows and caramel or Humble Crumble’s mulled wine crumble.

Deptford Bites at Christmas welcomes a pop-up Maker’s Market featuring handmade gifts from local London makers. The Maker’s Market will showcase homeware and lifestyle products as well as offering a series of interactive craft workshops from the makers themselves. These include an arm knitting class with Chap + Darling, and a gingerbread decorating workshop for the little ones, run by The German Wholegrain Baker’s Shop. Deptford Market Yard’s very own florist, The English Flowerhouse will also be hosting a wreath workshop where participants can take home their own festive wreath in time for Christmas.

Local designers, Georgia Bosson and Cecily Vessey will be hosting a shared pop up shop showcasing their limited edition products. They will also be on hand to reveal how they design and where they make their products, perfect as thoughtful, locally produced Christmas gifts.

Throughout the day, Deptford Market Yard will host live music and carol performances from local choirs as well as serve Christmas specials from the Yard’s tenants. Winter warmers are on the menu, with Bailey’s hot chocolate at Hanks, hot cocktails at Dirty Apron and Spanish mulled wine at the Tapas Room. Little Nan’s will be hosting a one-off Christmas Sing-a-long Bottomless Brunch where diners can enjoy classic Christmas party treats washed down with bottomless booze. Meanwhile, selected retailers will be offering exclusive discounts for the day including KICKS Love, Gita’s Portal, and Win and Ruby.

For some festive charity good-will, this December will also see several Deptford Market Yard tenants join forces with the Salvation Army to create the Deptford Advent Calendar – a collaboration with 25 local artists whom unveil artwork each day during advent in locations in and around Deptford.
