It’s Saturday so it must be market day. We decided to venture a little further yesterday – taking a bus, and two tubesall the way to Bermondsey We walked along unfamiliar streets and then under the viaduct of the London-Greenwich railwayOn the other side, a little further along, we found Maltby Street Market.Under the arches were all sorts of little trade set-ups With interesting namesAnd stalls of various types of food. But this is what caught Mummy’s attention – deliciously bad brownie!!! LOL!
In between the viaduct and the nearby buildings, we can see The Shard, one of the latest London iconic landmarksa contrast to what’s at ground levelAnd very considerately someone left us “Woof Woofs” a bowl of water
It had started to rain – it wasn’t in the weather forecast, so Mummy opted to stop for a cup of tea inside one of the places under the arches …She had a cup of tea and a doughnut –One lonely doughnut.
Share, Mummy? Too much sugar for one hooman is not good, as they have been reporting in the news.
Of all the eating places at Maltby Market, St John must have been the only place that wasn’t completely dog-friendly. We were told to sit at the table in the front of the restaurant.On the whole, it is a very dog-friendly market. Adding it to the hundreds of places we can go to in really quite dog-friendly London! 🙂
May’s comment: At dog-friendly Maltby Street Market in south-east London which opened in 2010, you can walk through with your pooches unapologetically. It may be limited in size but it has a lovely ambiance and picturesque due to it’s location under the railway arches.The market is anchored by LASSCO reclamation yard. So all over the place, the spaces are piles of timber and decorative antiques and materials, giving the market it’s unique ambiance.Nearest tube stations for Maltby Street Market is London Bridge or Bermondsey.
