Tagged: , , , ,

The Camberwell Fresh Food Market is an integral part of the Camberwell Village shopping experience. Located in the centre of Camberwell you’ll find organic fruit and vegetables plus a large range of fresh fish, meat and poultry. Bonus – the most stunning flowers are available – do love my hydrangea.

Interesting facts: Where the market is on was  originally a horse carriage factory and in the 1930’s became a produce market, servicing the market growers of the area. In 1992 a serious fire damaged most of the market, during the repairs the stall holders traded from a temporary premises. The site was also refurbished in 2002.

Many stall holders are second and third generation family run business and still trade in the traditional style marketing.

In December 2004 two new mosaics were made by Helen Bodycomb and René Schaefer were installed in the market and add a colourful entrance to the market.

Whether you’re a vegan, vegetarian, carnivore – there is plenty to get you excited here as well as somewhere to just chill in the middle of the complex and relax.
