Plumstead Community Market

Many of you will be aware of and visited the Plumstead Community Market that was started four years ago by Jess Currie and has been run by her ever since in St. Mark’s Hall by Plumstead Common. Earlier this year Jess asked us if we would be prepared to take over the running of the Market, due to her being unable to give it the time that it deserved, and we have agreed.

Jess held her last Market at the beginning of September during Plumstravaganza and we have now taken over the reins and will be holding the next Market on Saturday 15th October. The Market is open to the public from 11am until 3pm and entry is free, so why not come along to the Hall on Old Mill Road SE18 1QG and see what local traders have to offer.

Besides the regular artists and craftspeople we have managed to attract a number of new stallholders, resulting in the hall being fully booked, and we even have The Very Green Grocer trading outside the hall selling his fruit, vegetables, bread and other foodstuffs.

Further dates booked for this year are Saturday 12th November and Saturday 10th December.

Halloween 2016

We will be holding our Halloween event this year on the evening of Monday the 31st of October. Details to follow shortly.

Pickle Festival

Get Pickling! The 3rd Annual Plumstead Pickle Festival will take place on the evening of Tuesday the 6th of December in the Old Mill. Further details to follow.


Thank you to every one involved in Plumstravaganza. Go to the Plumstravaganza website for more information and competition results and check our blog to read about some of the events.
