New British Crafts Market Coming to Wandsworth Town

Monthly event to be held at Ram Quarter

The Ram Quarter

Saturday 1 October, will see the launch of Ram Quarter’s Saturday Makers Market.

The intention is to hold the event as a regular fixture on the first Saturday of every month, with additional dates already in place in the run up to Christmas. The markets, which will feature products from local designer makers, will take place in Bubbling Well Square and Ram Quarter’s main boulevard.

Local residents and visitors will be able to buy handmade clothes, accessories, jewellery and artwork from a mix of around 30 artists and makers. Drawn from across London and the UK, the wares will include sustainable fashion and unique items from fair trade designers.

The markets will run from 11:00am to 4:30pm on the first Saturday of each month for the rest of the year – 1 October, 5 November, and 3 December. And with the festive period approaching, two additional markets are in place for 26 November and 17 December.

They are being managed by Design Led, a London-based markets operator that also holds markets in fashion and lifestyle hotspots such as Dulwich Village and Mayfair’s South Molton Street.

Lee Wilson, owner and founder of Design Led, said, “The markets will bring new and distinctive artisan products right to people’s doorsteps. Whether it’s an autumn day out with the family, getting a unique gift, or looking to support local creativity and artistic talent, we’ll have something for everyone. Ram Quarter is the perfect spot for us thanks to its stunning riverside location and heritage, plus Greenland’s ongoing work to champion independent brands and create a hub for the Wandsworth community.”

Ram Quarter is the redevelopment of the former Young’s Brewery on the banks of the River Wandle. Ram Quarter is the longest continuously brewing site in the UK, now the base of Sambrook’s brewery, and is also home to a Heritage Centre telling the beer-making history of Ram Quarter and Wandsworth Town.
